What is Fasziobalance®?
Fasziobalance® is an only manual treatment modality for horses, developed by Benjamin Kohl und Max Mammel. The modality is non-invasive and drug free. Therefore unwanted side effects can be excluded.
Fasziobalance® is based upon the therapy concept of Osteopathy and Rolfing. It is significantly inspired by the Fascial Distortion Model (FDM), which was introduced in 1991 by US-American emergency doctor and osteopath Stephen Typaldos. The Fascial Distortion Model (FDM) is a medical point of view which follows back to the reason for physical discomfort and functional limitation to one or more of six typical deformation of the fascia. By mechanical treatment of the deformation, pain and movement limitation can be treated effectively comprehensibly and efficiently.
How does Fasziobalance® work?
The method uses specifically developed manual hand grips which address the fascias which enclose the organs, muscles and tendons. With the help of these grips, painful shifts of the physical structure can be identified and corrected. The body tension is reduced and can start to regenerate. Furthermore the grips loosen movement blockages and postural abnormalities. Using mechanical stimulation, the horse's natural self-healing power is effectively activated.
How long does the treatment take?
Usually one to three sessions is necessary in order to ensure the sustainable success of Fasziobalance®. The duration of a session depends individually of each horse and the initial situation.
Where does the treatment take place?
The treatment takes place at your horse's stable. We also fulfil short-term appointments.
When can Fasziobalance® be used?
Fasziobalance® to remove mechanical caused movements and postural abnormalities of the horse to release their full potential of flexibility, mobility and performance in leisure or equestrian sport. The modality is also suitable for rehabilitation treatment after a long-term injury. Furthermore Fasziobalance® can be used prophylactically to avoid disturbances of the musculoskeletal system to maintain the health of the horse.
