Fascia Research – Studying Our Glue

dw1xrf90s8hllxikfmc1It’s pretty amazing, really – the sheets and ropes that hold us together actually do much, much more. Like any other tissue in the body, fascia multitasks.

The Fascia Research Congress was begun in 2000 to bring scientists together with bodyworkers to share their mutual realizations on what, exactly, this stuff is. Fascia joins muscle to bone, bone to bone, provides the structure that holds our innards in place, and separates entire sections of our bodies. It also seems to play a vital role in our memory, immune system, and that irritating tendency for pain to not go away or move around to different parts.

What have they discovered about fascia so far? That there is much more to be learned. This article sums it up nicely.
