Fascia: The Bridge Between our Bodies, Minds, and Emotions

What is Fascia?

Fascia is a specialized system of the body that has an appearance similar to a spider's web or a sweater. Fascia is very densely woven, stringy tissue, covering and interpenetrating every muscle, bone, nerve, artery and vein. It also covers all of our internal organs including the heart, lungs, brain and spinal cord. It is made mostly of collagen that provides strength and flexibility. A liquid called hyaluronan is between each layer. The hyaluronan helps your fascia stretch as you move. The coolest part about our fascial system is that it is actually one continuous structure that exists from head to toe without interruption. This is why we say that every part of the entire body is connected to each other-by the fascia! Additionally, it is also the first line of defense when storing emotional trauma. James Oschman, PhD, describes the fascial system as the extensive living network that allows energy to be communicated and transferred through the human body.

What happens when our fascia is restricted?

In the areas where there are fascial restrictions, collagen and water are no longer conducting energy.  Inflammation and trauma can dry up the hyaluronan and damage your fascia. When your fascia tightens, it can restrict the movement of your muscles and tissues, causing pain and other health conditions. The areas may harden and become sticky. The body operates with less efficiency, and healing becomes more difficult. The body also has difficulty shifting gears, making it not only harder for you to get started, but harder for you to shut down and rest.  Fight or flight mode is always turned on. Believe it or not, over 85% of our pain is due to fascial restrictions!

What does a myofascial release session look like?

This session is ideal for everyone, especially those that have been suffering from pain that has been present for an extended amount of time, reoccurring pain, or pain of an unknown cause. Myofascial release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the fascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. This slowly applied pressure will allow fascia to relax, release, and elongate which will eliminate pain and restore motion. Each session is performed directly on skin without oils, which enables the therapist to accurately detect fascial restrictions and apply the appropriate amount of pressure.
