Fascial flow training 

ENERGY DANCE® gets your fascial in form! 

Occasionally scientific research not only updates accepted ideas, but brings about a complete reversal in traditional beliefs, causing us to review what we have hitherto believed to be inviolate.

This is precisely the effect new medical research is at present having on the importance of body connective tissue and on the functioning of fascial ligaments.

This net-like, fibrous system was hitherto considered to be little more than a form of packaging material, a notion which, as we now know, does no justice to its true importance. On the contrary, modern research makes it very clear that the fascial network is a system of great importance, just as vital for our whole organism as are our circulatory or nervous systems.

Fascinating training for your fasciae
‚In order to build elastic, supple yet at the same time resistant fascial tissue, it is necessary to find a suitable training programme which takes account of both modern research and the particularities of this tissue’ is what Müller and Schleip, Germany’s experts on the subject of the facial system, wrote in 2012.

They differentiate between therapeutic measures and preventive measures. Therapeutic measures, such as rolfing or fascial massage empoying a roller, looosen fibres which have become glued together, whereas preventive measures aim to exercise fascial tissue through a series of dynamic impulses resulting from diffferent, specific movements. It is important that such movements are both ‚flowing and supple‘, ‚elastic and springy‘ and that they are ‚multidirectional in origin’, i.e. lateral, diagonal or in the form of a spiral twist. This ensures that different areas of the body, as well as local and global fascial networks are stimulated.

Fasciae are best exercised through movement which can be categorised as ‚a soft, elastic, seesawing motion‘ beginning with light stretching in contrasting directions‘. ‚Flowing movement should be generated which feels effortlessly light and swinging‘, ‚changes in direction should never be abrupt, but gentle in nature‘, ‚all sudden and jerky interruptions to the flow of movement are to be avoided‘, and the movements themselves should ‚never be sharp and spasmodic, but a soft, elastic swinging motion‘.

The criteria Müller and Schleip postulate in their article as an effective way of exercising the fascial network sound like a precise description of the sequence of movements and the qualities of ENERGY DANCE®. All the points on their list form an integral part of the dynamic flow method and the flowing sequences of movement in an ENERGY DANCE® work-out. And not only this; the body awareness and body sensitivity necessary for the best possible exercise of the fascial tissues form part of the standard features of an
ENERGY DANCE® session.

The qualities of ENERGY DANCE® are confirmed by the results of fascial research. The capacity to percieve our surroundings should be promoted and enhanced and ‚a variety of experience is what is necessary, and not mechanical simplicity and monotonous repitition‘. It is difficult to imagine more diversity of movement and a wider range of experience within the course of a single lesson than with ENERGY DANCE®, resulting from ‚changes in speed and impact. The forms of movement vary from precipitiously fast to slow and fine flowing‘. ENERGY DANCE® is in this respect the ideal work-out programme for fascien training.

There is a further interesting article on the subject of fasciae in the ‚Zeitschrift für Gesundheit und Bewegung, GymNess‘, pubished in Switzerland by BGB, or you can download the complete article by clicking here.
