What is Fascia?
Fascia is a specialised system of the body that has the appearance similar to a spider’s web or the white stuff you find on an orange. Fascia is very densely woven, covering every muscle, bone, nerve, artery and vein, as well as, all of our internal organs. Trauma, inflammatory responses, surgical procedures, and repetitive movement patterns create Myo-fascial restrictions that can produce unbalanced pressure within our bodies and affect our overall posture.
The Winter hibernation encourages us to slow down, go more internal and just live a little quieter. And here I love the Japanese concept of Ma. Ma refers to the interval or gap between structural parts.
Ma is about space. It’s the part where there is nothing. It’s about pausing and taking breaks which so important for all of us.
