Neben Händen, Unteramen, Nacken und Rücken sollten auch die Füße als Ausgangspunkt der Rückenlinie beachtet werden. Viele Fascial-Release-Übungen sind annähernd ohne jede Anstrengung auch in Bürokleidung problemlos durchführbar und in kurzer Zeit zu absolvieren. Einseitige Belastungen sorgen für Verspannungen im Fasziensystem. Vorteile von Faszientraining im Büroalltag: › In Bürokleidung durchführbar › Geringe Kraftanstrengung nötig › Kurze Übungsdauer › Am Schreibtisch ausführbar › Sofortige Wirkung spürbar › Keine Unterbrechung der Arbeitszeit nötig › als aktive Pause integrierbar Viele typische »Büroerkrankungen« wie Sehnenscheidenentzündungen sind Beschwerden im Fasziensystem.

Faszien waren uns bisher besser bekannt unter der Bezeichnung Bindegewebe. Seit dem internationalen Faszienkongress 2007 in Vancouver wird aber nun einheitlich ein weiter, umfassenderer Begriff der Faszien synonym zu Bindegewebe verwandt. Dazu gehören alle kollagenen (eiweißartigen), faserigen Bindegewebe, verstanden als Teil eines körperweiten Netzwerks. Neben der umfassenderen Benennung startete auch die Neubewertung der Funktion dieser netzwerkartigen Faszien im medizinischen Sprachgebrauch und hält weiter unvermindert an.

Durch das Ausrollen und die bessere Gleitfähigkeit des Gewebes (die Muskeln gleiten besser in ihren Faszien) wird ein Effekt erzeugt, der sonst erst nach vielen Bewegungswiederholungen und einem längeren Zeitraum erreicht werden kann. Das ist vergleichbar mit dem Laufgefühl zu Beginn eines Laufes ohne Warm-up und dem Gefühl nach zehnminütigem Laufen, wenn die Muskeln erwärmt sind. Dieses angenehme Gefühl der verbesserten Elastizität der Muskeln stellt eine gute Verletzungsprophylaxe dar und erleichtert das Aufnehmen sportlicher Betätigung.
