Working with fascia can immensely benefit your health and well-being as it reaches deep down into your core. Fascia is the body’s connective tissue, that literally connects, supports and forms the structure of the whole body. It enfolds bones, muscles, organs and defines the body contour, providing stability and flexibility at the same time. As Ida Rolf, the founder of Rolfing, stated: Fascia is the organ of structure and movement. As it interconnects everything, the work deeply touches the whole being of the client. Sometimes strong energetic tingles may emerge in a part of the body that is far away from that part which is currently treated.
Fascia can be thought of as the electro-magnetic energy grid of the body. For Life force (Chi) to flow freely, the tissue needs to be vital, elastic and free of blockages. By working with the connective tissue we can enhance lymphatic flow, improve supply of oxygen and nutrients to the cell, heal nerve restrictions and rebalance the structure of the body as a whole.
When fibres are untangled, old trauma and emotions that were bound up in the tissue, are released. Now life has plenty of space to unfold from within.
