A new model of understanding Health & Wellbeing – Self-help Massage and the Fascial System


The Fascial system has been defined as a whole body web, a network that encompasses and surrounds all organs, muscles, bones and nerve fibres from the top of our head to the tips of our toes. It provides a functional structure of support for movement and a whole body communication network.

It is a packing material that every structure and cell is embedded into providing an environment within the tissue matrix that enables all body systems to operate and for cell to cell communication to take place in an integral manner to regulate homeostasis. The altered configurations of soft tissue, muscle and fascia that can cause ‘congestion’ within our body’s causing pain can be reduced with regular massage to restore function.

Massage with the massage mitts promotes healing and flexibility by stimulating the body’s own physiological responses within the tissue matrix to reduce stiffness and pain. Massage initiates the body’s own homeostatic processes by stimulating the soft tissue where you are massaging to reduce tissue 'congestion'. This in turn increases tissue hydration, oxygenation and movement thus turning the massage stimuli into nature’s own biochemical and neurophysiological responses, improving well-being and help restore function.


  • The Massage Mitts are designed for individuals who wish to take an autonomous approach to improving their health and the health of others.


  • The Mitts are not a substitute for medical advice; they are a Self-Massaging tool to use as continued support between treatments from healthcare professionals.


  • They can be used on multiple musculoskeletal conditions, sport injuries and post-surgery with permission from your Doctor or Consultant.


  • Self-Help Massage can decrease connective tissue congestion within the body to help reduce pain and restore function. Just apply oil over the area to be massaged and massage away.
