"I believe that the body remembers everything that ever happened to it"-John Barnes.

Fascia is the thin membrane of connective tissue that coats, surrounds, and supports every bone, tendon, muscle, nerve fiber, blood vessel, and organ in the body and also it plays a huge role in your immune system. Fascia is considered the System of all systems!. It is composed of layers of collagen lubricated by the fluid and polysaccharides (hyaluronans) of the extracellular matrix, from which it arises, in a sense. Its collagen fibers and its fluids both carry signals throughout the entire body.
In addition, it is coated by a refined comprehensive network of nerves analogous to the skin, making it exquisitely sensitive and especially sensitive to movement and vibration. For this reason, it reacts to stress( tightening up), and relaxation (loosening). It not only acts as a protective, stretchable coating but as a ‘body memory’ system. When stresses or strains, the fluid can get sticky and thicken, or dry out and crinkle up.

Fascia runs through the body including at cellular level, if restricted, it can cause all type of symptoms. Our cells have a crystalline nature, and when you apply gentle pressure into a crystal it generates electrical flow. We are electrical beings and our energy/consciousness runs through our fascia. When We are traumatized, physical or emotionally, fascial restrictions can create a tensile strength of approx. 2,000 pounds per square inch of pressure. This is the equivalent of full grown horses standing on a nerve!, as a result, the fascial matrix solidifies, tightens and restrict. Over time,  this tightness can cause limit motion, pain or other symptoms.  

The secret to living pain-free is hiding under your skin. If your fascia is constricted – whether by injury, scars, trauma, stress or illness – the flow of energy, wisdom, communication and movement between your body’s interwoven systems (including the Lymph system) gets disrupted. This can be a source of tremendous physical or emotional pain and discomfort.

 Myofascial restrictions often go unrecognized in health care because they do not show up in any of the standard MFR testing like X-rays, CT scans and blood work for example, whether we're taking acute or chronic  conditions.

Most people don't realize that many of their complaints such as headaches, join pain, hormonal imbalances, constipation, TMJ, arthritis, lymphatic congestion, chronic illness, sleep apnea, skin rashes, fertility issues, emotional issues/ anxiety, sugar metabolism, etc ...are actually related to their fascia.
