Frustration Led to Innovation

An Odd Pair

By: Susanne Lea Bech

The founders of bodydox – Klavs and Jens – are an odd pair. One is short and square the other long and slender, one practitioner the other scientist. Together they form a dynamic partnership and when they talk about how their vision of bodydox is turning into reality, their eyes light up.

As a practitioner Klavs has a background in massage and physical therapy, Mulligan mobilization, TRE and Structural Integration. Jens has a master of science in engineering and PhD degree from the Technical University of Denmark. They are obviously different and according to themselves that is what makes it work – each one looking to learn from the other.

Healthness is a sustainable and sustainable and ever increasing capacity for health in humans beings. It is the result of working with the client’s whole body over time. The purpose is to improve the body’s dynamic ability to absorb, distribute and release physical tension and for the client to embrace their innate human talent of being adaptable to change. more...

Our commitment to healthness is influenced by the scientific field of fascia. Fascia has been overlooked and its friends , muscles and bones, got all the attention. Lately it has become evident that fascia is the anatomical tissue that absorbs, distributes and releases tension in our bodies. Bodydox’ key feature is to collect a bodyimage because it visualizes the condition of the fascial system. Similar to how the condition of a bone structure is visualized in an x-ray.

In more spiritual or existential terms fascia is the tissue of being – of awareness – while muscle is the tissue of doing – of action. This relationship is as intertwined and mutually dependent as a fish and its water bowl. The condition of our fascial system provides us with the immediate environment that is our very own individual “water bowl”. All our human doing emerges from an environment that is human being. And it is on each of us to shape that environment so it suits the way we wish to function in the best possible way.
