What are fasciae?

Fasciae are the soft tissue structures of connective tissue. They envelop every muscle and organ and serve to support the tissue, guide tendons, fill empty spaces and act as a buffer. Fasciae are omnipresent and run like a web through the entire body.

Why do complaints occur?

The main factor leading to discomfort is a lack of movement or movement on one side. This results in reduced blood flow to the muscle and connective tissue. and connective tissue. Fasciae need H2O and especially hyaluronic acid. This is synthesised in our cells within the plasma membrane.

What can I do?

In addition to sufficient exercise and a varied diet, it is important to drink enough. When I have acute complaints, heat and a massage help. Since it is difficult to massage yourself, a fascia ball helps to solve exactly this problem.
