It is highly innervated and contains many different chemical messengers. Due to new research the fascial system has been considered the most richest sensory organs in the body. It responds to repetitive movement patterns, stress, trauma, injury, surgery or psychological disharmony at a cellular level by stiffening in an attempt to protect us. Unfortunately, sometimes these attempts have trouble being processed in the body and remain in the stuck position restricting range of motion, interrupting communication and causing pain or discomfort in the body. Proper hydration, nutrition, exercise, manual therapy and peace of mind help it become viscous and fluid again.
“Fascia is a tensional, continuous fibrillar network within the body, extending from the surface of the skin to the nucleus of the cell. This global network is mobile, adaptable, fractal, and irregular; it constitutes the basic structural architecture of the human body”
Dr Jean-Claude Guimberteau
