FReE: Fascial Real Emotion
FReE (Fascial Real Emotion) is much more than just movement. It is the key that will enable you
to change the “fascial” clothing that you wear every day: You will instantly feel younger, more
elastic, and more energetic. Not yesterday, not tomorrow, but now is the right time to change.
What are you waiting for?
In this book I will offer a step-by-step guide, starting with simple movements. In order to
change, serious commitment shall be required on your part to put the exercises into practice
and follow my recommendations; otherwise you won’t see the desired results.
The exercises proposed are easy to do and have a significant impact on the fascia, but it can be
a challenge to repeat them day after day. If you have a goal, don’t lose sight of it and the results
will come. Shrug off your old routine and you will reach new heights!
The New Key to Intelligent Movement
Throughout my 30 years of experience, my goal has always been to make people feel good, with
their body and mind together, inseparable, as they really are. That is why I have always looked to
improve my understanding of all the various aspects of human movement.
I was a Les Mills, Reebok, Polar, and Airex BeBalanced trainer for many years, as well as a fitness
instructor and personal trainer. I have attained qualifications in posturology (Bricot, Mézières),
Pilates (Polestar, Balanced Body, Fletcher, Hermann, Locher), the functional method, kettlebell
training (London, IKFF), and Gyrotonic, going to the Unites States every other year to consolidate
my skills. Each of these courses added new strings to my professional bow and to my training.
However, I was still me, just with a few more materials, methods, and professional contacts to call
upon—and a little more experience.
I first discovered the myofascia thanks to a book by Thomas Myers. To be honest, I didn’t
understand much of it, but I liked it. Things never happen by chance, but what matters, happens.
This really is true! I followed my intuition.
I started moving from place to place, taking part in courses by Thomas Myers (USA, Switzerland,
Germany, the Netherlands), by Michol Dalcourt (USA and the Netherlands), by Robert Schleip
(Germany), and by Karin Locher (England and Switzerland). Each discipline does of course take
time to be applied, absorbed, felt, and perceived. I entered the myofascial world on tiptoes,
enriching it with classic Italian cheerfulness and light-heartedness—and above all living it.
And that is where the magic happened. I don’t know how else to explain it. In a random place,
on an afternoon like any other, I was in Zurich, and I felt something change deep within me for
the first time; it was as if a block that I hadn’t been aware of had been removed from me. Can I
admit that? I went from euphoria to amazement and then to fear... and I cried.
That afternoon I realized that something had happened; I felt myself change for the first time,
and my own perception of myself was no longer the same. In a word, I was free.
That is where the name FReE (Fascial Real Emotion) comes from, which explains in a single
acronym what myofascial training really is all about. By working on the body more deeply than
we are used to, we can understand things that are normally ignored and go unnoticed. By feeling
my body and experimenting with a new way of using it, I discovered the meaning behind what
I was doing and realized I had found a new key to movement.
Welcome to the world of FReE. Happy reading!
Stay connected and FReE!
