How to use floss bands

Wrap the floss band around the area to be treated while increasing the pressure (less pressure at the beginning and end). With each wrapping, cover approximately 50% of the previous wrap. Leave the floss band on for approximately two minutes while your client does his/her exercises. Then remove the floss band and have your client move (actively or passively) to “boost” perfusion. Repeat this process a few times. The narrower floss bands of 2.5 cm are used for smaller parts of the body, like fingers.

The treatment is brief and the results are immediately measurable. However, it is often unpleasant and painful, especially in the beginning.

How floss bands affect the fascial system

One possible explanation for the positive results of flossing can be found in the function of the fascial system. The bands reduce myofascial adhesions and have an effect on the neural bioregulation system which is controlled by connective tissue and transfers information to and from the brain.

The soft connective tissue of the fascial network consists of different layers containing neural receptors. If there are fascial adhesions present in the tissue, this may cause pain, lymphatic failures and restricted movement.
