“By its actions we live and by its failures we die.” Dr. Andrew Taylor Still
The Fascia is a dense and irregular connective tissue found everywhere in our body. It enables our body to be one entity from head to toes. Because of its mobility, each organ, vessel, and muscle can function.
Anatomically the fascia is composed of a water-based matrix that contains collagen fibers, cells whith a role in our immune system, and mechano-receptors.
The mechanoreceptors can be activated by different type of stimuli: light pressure, deep pressure, and strectch.
Depending on their localisation, the pratitionner will adapt the techniques and pressure in order to give the mobility back to the structure and therefore allow the organ to function properly.
