What are fasciae?


How does the Fascia-ReleaZer® work?

If fascia tissue has become stuck together or hardened, you can improve its suppleness and elasticity by alternately applying pressure and tension. By using the Fascia-ReleaZer® as a self-help device, you can positively stimulate

these receptors in our tissue. This will increase and speed up the regenerative capacity of the tissue.

Your blood supply will also be improved and your nerves will function better. The stimulation from the Fascia-ReleaZer® allows new nutrients to reach the cells and makes it easier to transport away waste. In this way, the tissue is replaced and the elasticity and resilience of the tissue in the treated area are improved.

Another way to boost the elasticity of the tissue is with the vibration massage, which relaxes the muscles. This reduces stiffness, which in turn improves your movement.

The massage treatment must feel pleasant at all times. A slight haematoma may well occur – this is a positive therapeutic effect as the use of the Fascia-ReleaZer® can selectively encourage your blood flow. In isolated cases areas of redness may also occur on the skin. If you experience excessive skin irritation, stop using the Fascia-ReleaZer® and consult a doctor.

To ensure that the treatment is pleasant and tailored to you, we recommend the use of the sensation-pain scale. This will help you to find the ideal level of pressure for you. Since each person has a different perception of pain, we recommend a massage treatment in the recommended range (4-8). If the sensation rating lies between 0 and 4, the treatment will not be particularly effective as the

Fascia-ReleaZer® is unable to penetrate deep into the tissue. We would advise against a massage treatment in the critical range (more than 8), since excessive pressure is exerted on the tissue in this range.
