“Fascia is a thin casing of connective tissue that surrounds and holds every organ, blood vessel, bone, nerve fiber and muscle in place. The tissue does more than provide internal structure; fascia has nerves that make it almost as sensitive as skin.”
This tissues importance has only recently been realized. It used to be cut away during studies and discarded with adipose tissue etc. The importance of fascia however is mind-blowing! It’s like a fascinating web that runs over everything in your body. It can hold information and past trauma (in the form of scar tissue & restrictions / adhesions). It basically takes your body from “bag of bones” to “well oiled machine”.
However, this means when not properly taken care of it can also cause a lot of trouble.
Over the next few weeks I will be making some posts here to go over the “fascial lines” or “fascial meridians”. Bare with and and follow along as I’m currently using these posts as a way to expand my own knowledge, along with yours. 🙂
In the search for information I will be using the following resources often:
- Anatomy trains –
- Born to walk –
- Fascial Release for Structural Balance –
If / when I come across other recourses throughout this series I will add to this post and likely mention it along the way.
All for now,
