Fascia is the wet, gooey, gliding substance that holds you together. It surrounds muscle fibers, muscles, organs, bones, blood vessels and nerves. Not only does fascia wrap and shape all of these body systems, it is an intelligent fabric that organizes and responds to forces that you experience by living. It thickens and changes to support you in gravity, and to support postural or emotional patterns of holding in the body. It supports these patterns in the short term, but over time it can become locked or stuck causing painful patterns to become more and more embedded in the body. By working to release these fascial holding patterns, we can shift these dysfunctional places, bringing ease, more mobility and new possibility for movement and awareness in the body.
