Fascial Integration Therapy
Did you say Fascia? What is that?
Generally called connective tissue, fascias are made of densely packed protein fibers like collagen. It weaves throughout the entire body, and it binds and supports your muscles, bones and even your organs. Extremely innervated and vascularised, this internal webbing helps different muscle and visceral systems communicate with one another.
Ideally, your fascias should be supple enough to slide, glide, twist and bind. When they’re not functioning properly, signals from the nerve endings are muffled or muted (so you don’t feel comfortable in your own body) or they’re interpreted by your brain as pain and discomfort.
F.I.T Fascial Integration Therapy
When you don’t move around enough over time, after doing repetitive movements or when you hold a bad posture for a too long time, fascias can get spasmed and lose their elasticity. Adhesions between the different layers of this tissue develop and therefore leading to a loss of mobility and pain in some parts of the body.
FIT is a body manipulation therapy that uses specific moves on key-points (often located at fascia crossings) throughout the body and therefore helps to restore the balance of fascial system of the body.
