What is Fascial Manipulation?

Fascial Manipulation is a manual therapy method that has been developed by Italian physiotherapist Luigi Stecco. Myofascial system is a three-dimensional continuum. Fascial Manipulation focuses on the fascia, especially the deep muscular fascia. There are two major components of this manual technique consists in the identification of a specific, localised area of the fascia in connection with a specific limited movement and an accurate analysis of the myofascial connections based on the understanding of fascial anatomy, that can provide indications as to where it is best to get involved. Once a painful or limited movement is identified, the movement can be restored through the deep massage of the specific point on the fascia, so as decrease clients' pain.
