The new standard in well-being

Swedish Fascia Vibes is a new form of treatment of the fascia/connective tissue, which effectively and gently increases mobility and relaxation, eases pain and tension, improves circulation and increases the fluid flow.

Fascia and Fascia Treatment

  • New research shows that fascia, a system of connective tissue, has a larger impact on health and well-being than was previously known.
  • This has sparked a worldwide movement within the anatomical research field, with new groundbreaking findings every year. Continuously innovating and developing new methods for fascia treatment has become increasingly important.
  • Swedish Fascia Vibes is everything from the products used to increase relaxation and mobility, to learning and developing new methods, to helping people understand their bodies in a simple way.

What is Atlasbalans?

  • The Atlasbalans business concept is to deliver high-quality equipment, training and services in wellness for both people and animals.
  • The idea for Atlasbalans was born in 2009 when Hans Bohlin wanted to create a wellness concept to ensure people long-term health. Together with Axel Bohlin, with a background in digital marketing, the business was developed, and when Ivar Bohlin joined Atlasbalans as sales manager, the family business reached new levels. Charlotta Bohlin is an adviser to the business and is always ready to step in during times of tough challenges.
  • We empower professional therapists and give them what they need to perform excellent treatments. Simply put, we help people reach their full potential.

How do you make a more efficient hand?

  • In the beginning of 2018 Atlasbalans was faced with some challenges. The concept based on fascia treatment of both people and animals was working in Sweden – but would it work internationally Treatment showed quick results, great results and due to it’s mobility it was great for public treatment.
  • With hundreds of users working together, optimizing and developing new ways of working and with an international network of researchers and professionals, Atlasbalans was set up for future success. But how do you keep improving, how do you keep up with new research and new insights, and how do you keep the body interesting in a digital age?
  • There was a space for a new standard in well-being – and thus the 2018 launch of Swedish Fascia Vibes

More on Fascia and Fascia Treatment

“Fascia treatment is the future and we need good equipment”

Jarmo Ahonen, Physiotherapist

“I think that people are trying to figure out that everything that we do needs to be scientifically proven, but they forget that there’s a lot of things that have been scientifically proven before, like the Pacini receptors and how they react on vibration and oscillating movement.

So if it’s not done with this certain machine it’s still an effect which is existing so it doesn’t really matter what kind of makes equipment, you use you can use the hands to create the oscillating movement or you can use the machine, the science is still there, so you don’t need to do the the same scientific proof again and again and again.”

Everything is developing so you need to be developing with it

Around the world there is an ongoing revolution within the anatomical research field, turning the way we view our bodies upside down and setting a new standard for how we conduct research. 

Dr Heike Jäger, neuro physiologist and specialist in muscular deseases, chronic pain and back ache at the Fascia Research Center at the University of Ulm, Germany, is one of those leading this development. According to her, the old premises for anatomical research are no longer valid.

The reason being this wildfire of new discoveries that is challenging our conventional view of the human body. One such example (Rein et al, 2014) is the discovery of a new type of nerv endings in the tissue, previously unknown to us.
