What is fascia?
Fascia is the connective tissue that weaves through, supports and surrounds muscles, joints, ligaments, organs, cells, and everything in between. As well as being a fundamental component of our bodies it is an important factor in maintaining health, well-being and optimal physical function. If it’s restricted due to injury, immobility, or lifestyle; daily movement is diminished. Pain and tension are often the result.
