What is Fascia?
Fascia is a flat band of tough fibrous tissue below the skin that covers underlying tissues and encloses muscles. It wraps around your entire body, weaving around your muscle groups and organs to keep everything as one connected unit.
When areas of fascia become too tight, it can pull, distort and compress your body into misalignment. Tight and distorted fascia is often the cause of your chronic pain! When this occurs regular stretching won’t be enough.
Tight fascia can also negatively affect blood flow. Veins run through and beneath the fascia. If it is tough and tight, our blood flow is restricted, which limits the delivery of essential nutrients to that part of the body.
So you see healthy fascia is a healthy body!
