How Kinetic Flossing works?
Kinetic Flossing is mostly based on the theoretical background of fascial treatment, Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) and Kinetic Control theories.
Kinetic Flossing is based on the fascial treatment as first described by Ida Rolf and Thomas Myers. Its primary goal is to dissolve adhesion and loosen trauma-induced scar tissue, as well as restore the elasticity of the connective tissue through the shear effects and controlled micro re-injuries.
The myofascial release applications are based on the detailed knowledge of the function and physiology of the fascial system. A fascia is a band or sheet of connective tissue, primarily collagen, beneath the skin that attaches, stabilizes, encloses, and separates muscles and other internal organs. The most interesting part of this ‘’organ’’ is that it is not a system that consists of different parts, but it is a structure that extends from head to foot without being separated at any point. In this way we understand that all parts of the human body are connected to each other via the fascia. The fascia mainly consists of collagen and can be stretched and moved freely.
It is understood that the high compression applied to the soft tissue with Kinetic Flossing will trigger neuromuscular adaptations. During the application of Kinetic Flossing, a compression is transferred between the soft tissue and the fascia layers. Friction and shear effect help to release possible fascia restrictions and adhesions, to avoid scar tissue deposition, to stimulate collagen production and improve movement between the fascia layers.
