Fascial Foundations, Myofascia & Biotensegrity
Learn all the basics about what fascia is, what it's made of, where you can find it in your body, what it looks like, and why it's so amazing!
Fascia was largely regarded as tissue that was 'in the way' during exploration of cadavers in anatomy labs around the world.
Anatomists, medicine and movement specialists typically ignored the thin and mostly fragile tissue found under the skin and over the muscles.
Little did we realize that one of the most fascinating structures in the human body was being completely ignored!
Breathing, Your Nervous System & Fascia
We now recognize that our nervous system regulates our fascial health and wellbeing. Humans are the only 'animals' that have conscious control of our breath!
One significant way 'in' to managing the tension held in our fascia is by becoming aware of our breath and our breathing habits.
Learning how we breathe, understanding that most of us are 'overbreathers', and that raising our carbon dioxide tolerance is a major way of improving our health puts us on the right path to big health benefits!
Week 3: Nourish Your Body, Feed Your Fascia
By now most of us understand that our brain's health depends on the health of our belly.
What we feed ourselves, how we digest our food, and how well nutrients are absorbed into our blood stream is key to both our mental and physical wellbeing.
The development and transportation of the neurochemicals made in our gut helps our brains to function optimally and, by extension, enables our bodies to move with ease.
Fascia In Motion
We now know that our fascia is a whole body system that communicates through chemical messages. Regulation of our nervous system depends on these chemical pathways remaining open and clear.
A sedentary lifestyle, physical or emotional trauma or previous injuries, illnesses or surgeries can greatly influence fascial health, and, by extension, our ability to move comfortably every day.
Learn how to get your fascial system moving in gentle ways to help your nervous system stay on an even keel.
