SCIENCE

In cooperation with the CIT Research Institute and the Universities of Tübingen, Memphis and Palma de Mallorca, UDH was part of the recruitment, implementation and writing process of a scientific study on self-treatment and the muscle fascia of 113 bboys. Several other studies are in the writing process and are pending for publication.

These studies were presented at the International Fascia Research Congress in Washington DC (2015), at the Tamed Dance Medicine Congress in Dresden (2016), at the International Congress for Integrative Medicine and Health in Stuttgart (2016), at the BFE Meeting in Aveiro (2017) and at the Fascia Symposium in Coburg (2017).

In September 2015 the „Self-help Treatment with a Myofascial Manipulation Tool“ study received the 3rd prize for best poster presentation at the International Fascia Research Congress in Washington DC.
