Fascia by Any Other Name...
Researchers are in the process of formalizing a definition for this ubiquitous, intelligent, global facilitating tissue such that even the name has not yet been decided upon. Fascia is short and quick, so until science is ready, fascia is the term that will be used most often on this site for all of the body's connective tissue.
Research is proving what fascia therapists found out for themselves: This water-loving, organ-like, facilitative, system holds the secrets to the good health of everything connected to it: your vascular and nervous systems, muscles, bone structure, organs, and even protective fat.
Besides a healthy diet and lifestyle, fascia focused bodywork is one of the best ways to get and keep your connective tissue healthy.
Meet FR:EIA (fray-ah)
I've spent many hours in the cadaver lab assisting with fascial dissection. What was accomplished with FR:EIA astounds and humbles me.
FR:EIA is beautifully, respectfully displayed, and just the tip of the knowledge iceberg that awaits future clinicians and researchers. Let us gain new respect for ourselves and each other, through her.
