The Fascial Abrasion Technique specifically targets and loosens the fascia. Fascia is the connective tissue that connects us from our toes to the top of our head, surrounds our muscles, provides most of our sensory feedback from structures called proprioceptors, and is responsible for both quality and quantity of movement.
Exercise tends to squeeze water out of the fascia, leaving it with areas that may become stiff and brittle as well as vulnerable to injury.
The FAT tool is unique in that it has a textured surface that helps lifts up the fascia and quickly teases loose the adhesions and allows the fascia to return to a more resilient and healthier version of its previous self. It never leaves bruising and is a light technique that is comfortable to the client.
Key benefits from the FAT are: improved mobility, improved motor control, improved proprioception and improved circulation.
