WHAT IS FASCIA?
What, Who, Why…
It seems fascia is suddenly the word on everyone’s lips! But why?
Due to ground-breaking work by Dr Robert Schleip, Professor Carla Stecco, Dr Jean-Claude Guimbarteau and the like, this so-called Cinderella tissue has emerged as far more than “nature’s packing material” as once assumed, gaining prominence as one of the most, if not the most, significant contributor to fluid, efficient movement.
With roles in proprioception, force transmission, elastic recoil, and the immune and lymphatic systems, fascia has ignited the imagination of talented researchers the world over, producing a burgeoning body of work to carry us forward in our exploration of the endless web.
