Fascial manipulation is a treatment technique that was invented by Luigi Stecco of Italy. Luigi was a physical therapist and having encountered several injured patients, it had become frustrating for him to watch how long it took for injuries to fully recover which brought someone’s life to a halt, and also how the pain one had to go through the recovery process.
Driven by the passion to come up with a solution, Luigi developed his Fascial Manipulation technique. Fascial Manipulation is mainly focused and centered around the fascial system in the body. Fascia is a layer that covers soft tissues like muscles, nerves, and ligaments. The fascia ensures that everything is held together properly to ensure that one experiences painless motion as the tissues and bones slide over each other.
