What is Fascia?

Fascia is a specialized system of the body that has an appearance similar to a spider’s web.  Fascia is very densely woven, covering and interpenetrating every muscle, bone, nerve, artery and vein, as well as, all of our internal organs including the heart, lungs, brain and spinal cord. The most interesting aspect of the fascial system is that it is not just a system of separate coverings. It is actually one continuous structure that exists from head to toe without interruption. In this way you can begin to see that each part of the entire body is connected to every other part by the fascia, like a fiber in a network of an entire web.  Having loose, healthy fascia is vital for overall health and well-being.

How does fascia affect me?

Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create Myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures that do not show up in many of the standard tests (x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.).  A high percentage of people suffering with pain and/or lack of motion may be having fascial problems, but are not diagnosed.

When you have fascial adhesions and distortions, this can cause poor blood flow, weaker nerve impulses, limited flexibility and range of motion, and a host of other physical ailments.  Fascia Blasting Therapy decreases adhesion’s in the fascia. The result is improved range of motion, decreased muscle pain and soreness. It has been known to help release hormones from adipose tissue for increased fat loss and improved cellulite appearance.
