More well-being and health through fascia treatment and movement.
Prevention, regeneration & healing through fascia treatment.

Back problems, neck pain or “tennis elbow” – who does not know them. In most cases, these and many other complaints are based on a disturbed structure of our fasciae. Fasciae enclose muscles, vessels, bones and organs and play an important role in our body.

Gerd Gradwohl, physiotherapist in his own practice, presents a novel physiotherapeutic treatment method – Myofascial Integration. Here, special manual techniques are combined with movement. As a result, acute or chronic orthopedic complaints caused by disturbed, scarred or stuck fasciae can be successfully treated within a short time.

With a large exercise section on functional training by Dr. Frank Frebel and a guest contribution by pelvic floor expert Susanne Schwärzler.Foreword by co-founder of fascia therapy Benno Geissler.
