In today’s episode, we are going to be talking about a very trendy word: fascia! We are seeing fascia in all different wellness realms, from fascia blasters to rollers, it’s easy to get lost in it all. Today I want to break down fascia from a physical therapist view, and also in a personal movement educator standpoint.
F: Fascia is a fibrous connective tissue; it’s also fluid.
A: Attaching everywhere
S: Supple spiderweb system
C: Communicator– within the connections, there are receptors that communicate
I: Intersection (between science and voodoo)
What has worked universally for those who have a malady in their feet or calves?
Working on getting your fascia more adaptable is extremely important!
Help with lumbar fascia:
Rather than doing plow pose, place your weight the opposite way. Put the weight into your feet, bend your knees, lay your belly on your thighs, and let your head release.
