Fibromyalgia, Fascia and Manual Therapy

Fascia has a rich innervation, which opens new perspectives to better understanding the mechanisms of pain. Dysfunctions of fascia may trigger pain, and problems of perception of the body.

Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain syndrome, characterised by widespread pain, sleeping problems, and chronic fatigue. Fascia is regularly mentioned in papers on fibromyalgia. Recent studies have given clues as to the efficiency of fascial treatment approach for fibromyalgia.

DBM Fasciatherapy is a body-mind approach which addresses the fascia and its connection with the brain.

This workshop is designed to allow participants to experiment this integrated approach.

Over the course of the workshop, the following will be covered:

  • Fascia as a sensory organ;
  • Fibromyalgia and its complexity;
  • DBM Fasciatherapy and its action on fascia;
  • An extensive hands-on session;
  • Feedback on the sensations perceived, and how this experience furthers knowledge of fascia.

Experienced practitioners will help the participants in the exploration of DBM fasciatherapy.
