What Is Fascia and Do I Have It?

Yes, you do! We all do.

It is the gliding system that makes our bodies move so freely.

Fascia is a seamless 3-dimensional webbing of the entire connective tissue system. Connective tissue is composed of collagen, elastin and a polysaccharide gel complex called ground substance. Fascia can be grouped into three divisions. Superficial fascia lies directly below the dermis. Deep fascia covers, weaves, infiltrates and fuses with: muscle, bone, nerves, arteries, veins, down to the cellular level; as well as surrounding all internal organs. At the deepest level fascia surrounds the central nervous system; the dura mater-within the cranium, brain and spinal cord.

One uninterrupted system responsible for maintaining structural integrity. Providing support and protection. Acting as our body's shock absorber.

In a normal healthy state fascia is hydrated, pliable with the ability to glide and stretch freely.

Through trauma, injury, surgery, postural compensations or any stressful combination, fascia loses its natural hydration and pliability becoming tight, twisted, tough similar if you will to a piece of leather. Prolonged stress, tension, unresolved emotional upset also contribute to fascial restrictions anywhere in the body.

Thank you for considering Myofascial Release Therapy as a choice on your journey to feeling better, feeling alive, feeling pain free, getting your life back.

Fascia, when stressed, can exert up to 2000 lbs per sq. inch of pressure 3-dimensionally.
-The Search For Excellence by John F. Barnes P.T.

That pressure is equal to the full grown weight of a draft horse!
