How does Fascia (the jelly) get stronger?

Updated: Jul 6


The main goal of WeFlow is to strengthen the Fascia.

How is that possible?

Well... two main events have to happen:

1. The tissues must receive enough nutrients that will come from the flow of those fluids carrying them (blood, interstitial fluids). To promote the proper flow, restrictions most be removed and some internal mechanisms must be activated.


2. New fibers will be created when the tissues get strained, frequently and repetitively. This means when the fascia gets mechanically stimulated many times. This is why we rather teach the parents how to do it, so they can do it at home, every day.

The following video* illustrates very well this second process (it is called Fibrillogenesis):

¿Cómo se fortalece la fascia (la gelatina)?


El principal objetivo de WeFlow es fortalecer la fascia.


¿Cómo es posible esto? Bueno…dos eventos deben suceder:


1. Los tejidos deben recibir nutrientes suficientes provenientes del flujo de los fluidos (sangre, fluidos intersticiales). Para promover un flujo apropiado, se deben eliminar las restricciones y activar algunos mecanismos internos.



2. Se crearán nuevas fibras cuando el tejido se fortalezca, frecuente y repetitivamente. Esto ocurrirá cuando la fascia este bajo estimulación mecánica. Esta es la razón por la cual le enseñamos a los padres como hacerlo, así pueden realizarlo en casa, todos los días.
