Fascia – What is it and why do we focus on it?

Fascia is an often overlooked but absolutely fundamental part of our body’s structure.

It is the stringy, mesh-like tissue that connects and contains all our various muscles, organs, bones and tissues. Fascia has two core roles: to maintain our body’s shape and enable it to move freely.

We do not see 600+ different muscles, we see 1 muscle in 600+ fascial compartments.

What most people (and even many professionals) don’t realise is that your fascia is one single ‘net’ that wraps around, through and between all the parts of your body, like one giant piece of clingfilm. Naturally that means that if your fascia is restricted, stiffened or cut in one part of your body, there can be unexpected and often incorrectly diagnosed effects elsewhere.

With its own set of nerves providing both pain reception and movement capabilities, fascia is finally understood as a key to unlocking chronic pain and restricted movement.

Simply put, if we can restore the health of your fascia, we can do wonders for you.
