The authentic Fascia Massage Technique combines several fascial effective principles, making it a highly effective Fascia massage.
With the discovery of the Stimulation frequency with which the authentic Fascia Massage Technique is applied, the Founder made a breakthrough in 2011 to develop an effective and sustainable Fascia Massage.
What distinguishes the authentic Fascia Massage Technique from other classic Massage Techniques? The handling respectively hand-finger technique, the targeted stimulation of specific fascial receptors in a certain frequency range, the stretching, loosening and strengthening effect on the fascial tissue and the Sequence:
Depending on the intensity, the Massage Technique aims to loosen and strengthen the upper tissue layers of the superficialis Level: cutis, subcutis, fascia superficialis (body fascia) and/or the deeper tissue layers, profunda Level: fascia profunda (muscle fascia) = epimysium, perimysium, endomysium.
At the same time the Massage Technique aims to stimulate certain fascial receptors and free nerve endings = sensory perception. For an effective and lasting Fascia Massage, the stimulation of the fascial receptors is of fundamental importance and has a direct influence on the Fascial tone (state of tension). The Fascial system has 6 times more sensory receptors than the muscular system and is the second largest sensory organ after the skin, with a direct influence on the autonomic nervous system.
Through various stimulation variations during the Massage, the basic Substance in the Extracellular matrix is increased through Extravasation and Fluidity is improved. This accelerates the Body's own regeneration processes and the Metabolism is stimulated. The dissolved waste Products are discharged from the lymph via venous vessels and lymphatic channels.
Collagen connective tissue fibers of the superficial level (retinaculum cutis superficialis and profunda) hold the different tissue layers of the skin together. At the same time they act as a buffer for the skin. During Application, the Collagen connective tissue strands are stretched, which in turn creates an Anti-Cellulite Effect. The appearance of the skin is rejuvenated.
A mobile fascial system is of great importance for an intact Immune System!
Understanding intensity and pressure is important for the application of the authentic fascia massage technique. How do you find out with what intensity you perform the authentic fascia massage technique? Start a self-experiment by using the self-treatment technique shown on yourself in a wide variety of zones. Start with a gentle glide and increase the intensity after every 5th repetition. What is good and what is not?
Observe the reaction from the tissue! After the first self-application, return to the same application zone 5 minutes later and perform the self-treatment again. What has changed?

2.1. Crosslinks (hydrogen bonds / cross connections)
A distinction is made between water-soluble and water-insoluble cross-links.
Water-soluble cross-links consist mainly of simple hydrogen bonds (newly formed cross-links within the tissue that make the tissue inelastic) and are simply due to a lack of stretching and movement and poor metabolism.
The comparative form of water-soluble (simple) cross-links are water-insoluble. They are formed when water-soluble cross-links persist over a longer period of time. This type of cross-links are, among other things, the precursor to fascial hardening (Fasciagelose).
2.2. Fibrin gummed-ups
Fibrinogen is a preliminary stage to fibrin (clotting factor). A local accumulation of fibrinogen in the tissue can be caused 1. By an injury (wound) or 2. By a lack of contraction and stretching (lack of movement, postural defects). A local accumulation of fibrinogen in tissue initiates a biochemical reaction in the body and converts fibrinogen into fibrin.
If there is a wound, fibrin sticks to the wound and protects the organism from intruders such as germs, viruses, parasites and bacteria.
If a local accumulation of fibrinogen in the tissue is caused by a lack of contractions and stretching (e.g. poor posture, relieving posture, lack of exercise) and the biochemical transformation process is started by the organism, the fibrinogen is transformed into fibrin. It now locally sticks together the tissue, although there is no wound! The tensions begin.
2.3. Matted fascias
Due to long periods of inactivity caused by surgery, injury, illness, age, or lifestyle, the fascia tissue becomes matted. Over time, the fascia tissue loses its Rhombus shape and wave shape. It loses its lubricity, suppleness and elasticity and can no longer adequately fulfill its tasks as a supporting and force-transmitting tissue.
The Origin, of course!
The origin of muscle soreness is micro-fractures in the muscle fibers due to overuse of muscle groups. The affected muscle fibers swell. After about 12 to 24 hours, inflammatory substances emerge from the muscle fibers and irritate the surrounding pain receptors (Nociceptors).
Movement impairments and pain stimuli are the consequences of muscle soreness. The muscle soreness intensifies within 1-2 days and takes about 2-3 days to subside. The associated movement restrictions and pain last on average 4-7 days.
The muscles are supplied with nutrients and oxygen via the blood. Fascial tissue is washed around and supplied with tissue fluid.
One liter of water increases the blood volume in the body by about one liter, which is urgently needed by the organism for a good supply and detoxification.
Fascia hangover disappears without a trace after a 48-hour regeneration phase and does not cause any painful movement impairments as in the case of muscle soreness. You are consciously aware of the fascia hangover, but you can put full physical strain on yourself. The fascia hangover also leaves micro-fractures - tears in the fascial structures. The pain receptors are stimulated. When using the authentic fascia massage technique is applied, extravasations are encouraged in the extracellular matrix and fluidity is improved. The described process in turn accelerates the regeneration processes in fascial structures. The fascia hangover recedes within 48 hours.
For a successful application of authentic fascia massage, the origins and types of fascias tensions come into focus.
What types of fascias tensions can be loosened with the authentic fascia massage technique?
All points listed here are of elementary importance for an effective and sustainable application of the authentic fascia massage and must be taken into account by both users and clients.
The complexity requires a professional approach: Knowledge, skill and experience as well as empathy from the users.
It has been proven that 2 to 3 authentic fascia massages are required for the sustained release of local fascial tensions, matted fascias and gummed-up. In the case of fascia Gelose (solidification that remains palpable under anesthesia), no prognosis can be given. Other personal factors must also be taken into account in the treatment concept.
The second authentic fascia massage is always the most effective! In the first run, the basic loosening is usually achieved. This feels very pleasant for the client. The sustainability and the loosening of the fascias comes into effect with the second and third application.
The special feature of the authentic fascia massage technique is: The treated fascial tissue regenerates within 48 hours after the first application, which can be noticeable as a fascia hangover. The first revitalisation lasts 8 to 12 days. For a lasting effect, the specified time windows must be taken into account.
Side effects cannot be ruled out. This is due to the nature of fascial tension and the respective degree of tension. Pressure sensitivities up to mild and moderate fascia hangover in the treated areas can occur after the first authentic fascia massage. From the second massage onwards, the intensity can be increased. The described side effects after the first massage then no longer come to the fore.
Certain preexisting conditions, for example: severe diabetes, Varicose veins, osteoporosis; medication, open injuries, recent operations and scars can lead to the exclusion of an authentic fascia massage.
Medication: Blood thinners, blood clotting agents are the absolute "no-go's!" for an authentic fascia massage. Other medications can react counter productively to an application. Consult a doctor if you are unsure whether you can use the authentic fascia massage technique on the client. The same applies to previous illnesses!
If you are knowledgeable, a preliminary interview or anamnesis could be useful.
Clients with loose connective tissue and tension in the deep layers of fascia are particularly difficult to massage. This kind of tension requires the right dosage and intensity of the massage technique. Do not increase the intensity of the application too quickly and pay attention to the tissue reaction!
The Founder of the authentic fascia massage technique recommends the Textbook "Fascia" by Dr. Robert Schleip to every participant to deepen the theoretical basis regarding fascia. Available in bookstores or use the App from TeachMeAnatomy.
