“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, covering and interpenetrating every muscle, bone, nerve, artery and vein, as well as, all of our internal organs including the heart, lungs, brain and spinal cord.
The most interesting aspect of the fascial system is that it is not just a system of separate coverings. It is actually one continuous structure that exists from head to toe without interruption. In this way you can begin to see that each part of the entire body is connected to every other part by the fascia, like the yarn in a sweater.” – John F. Barnes
“Fascia is essential to the dance between stability and movement – crucial in high performance, central in recovery from injury and disability, and ever present in our daily life from our embryological beginnings to the last breath we take.”- Tom Myers creator of Anatomy Trains
