Fascia is a term denoting the continuous connective tissue network that extends throughout the body. It encloses, separates and permeates virtually all parts of the body, from head to toe. Fascia includes tendons, ligaments and muscle sheaths as well as subcutaneous tissue, organ sheaths and meninges. Thanks to new research findings, we now know that targeted treatment and training of the fasciae is possible. This book provides exactly the right knowledge needed for targeted and holistic fascia self-treatment. Step by step, the author explains easy-to-perform exercises that utilize the connections throughout the entire body and take the body-mind connection into account. In numerous illustrations, the instructions are described comprehensibly and in detail.
