Conditions like Cerebral Palsy, brain injuries, some genetic disorders, and others, may affect the quality and proper tension of the Fascial System that supports the different parts of the body (brain, bones, muscles, nerves, vessels, etc ).
Without the right support, the muscular-skeletal system collapses, deformities appear and the exchange of body fluids (blood, cerebrospinal fluid, lymph, interstitial fluid) gets restricted. Inadequate flow of these vital fluids limits the body's own mechanisms to grow, maintain and repair. This is the main reason why individuals with Cerebral Palsy, as they grow, their physical condition worsens limiting their motor performance and quality of life.
With the use of gentle techniques, the fluids flow is reestablished bringing a favorable environment for the body to function, allowing the Fascia to strengthen and provide a better support to the structure. The mechanisms for developing and healing are unlocked.
With WeFLow Therapy, the children with Cerebral Palsy get stronger and healthier while improving their postures and gaining control of their movements.
WeFlow teaches the parents or caregiver gentle manual techniques to work on the Fascial System. These techniques bring the following benefits:
Reestablishment of the fluids flow bringing a favorable environment for the body to function. This new flow carries more nutrients to the tissues and promotes overall relaxation.
Fascia remodeling only happens when these techniques are applied regularly. Therefore, we teach the caregiver how to deliver them at home. This also allows the parents and caregivers to choose the best time during the day to work on their loved ones.
Another benefit of WeFlow is that it can be done without the voluntary participation of the child (because it is passive). Most of the children fall asleep as the parents work on them, or choose to watch their favorite T.V. show.
The Fascial System changes no matter how old the patient is, offering a wonderful avenue to help adults with Cerebral Palsy and other neuromuscular disorders.
