Fascia is the web of connective tissues that permeates the body, surrounding muscles, nerves, organs and bones. It gives our bodies shape and function. Fascial transmits force through the body as well as creating layers that can glide over one and other. Our muscles, nerves and bones cannot be divided from their fascial coverings, they are deeply imbedded in them. Many common musculoskeletal problems involve changes in the fascial system; tendonitis, plantar fasciaits, carpal tunnel syndrome are some examples.

Fascial work can be gentle and relaxing or aggressive and engaging depending on the patient and there needs.

Fascial work is amazing for athletes, it is the most scientifically validated type of soft tissue therapy for improving and maintaining athletic performance. Many of the common conditions athletes suffer from, i.e. ITB syndrome, achilles tendonitis, golfers and tennis elbow etc. are problems in the fascial system.

Most nerve entrapments occur where nerves pass though perforations in fascial sheets or in the space between fascial compartments. Freeing stuck fascia takes pressure off nerves helps them to glide through tissue. This reduces pain and improves range of motion.
