Vancouver RMT Article of the Week
We have introduced fascia in previous blog posts. Its most important quality is its expansiveness- touching every structure in the body and bring everything together. Without the smooth fluid movement of fascia we can expect to experience stiffness and an imbalance.
For most of the worker-bee population, the day can involve being seated in the same position for a number of hours. A sedentary position can create regions of both lengthening, shortening and stiffening in the fascial tissue which interrupts the natural structure of the tissue system, and can be the cause of discomfort in other activities.
A story of one woman’s experience with fascia and treatment through massage therapy can be found in the article Let Your Fascia Flow.
It is easy to forget that there are structures other than muscles and bones that we need to keep healthy. Freely moving fascia is integral to a happy, healthy body.
