Fascia Needs Myofascial Release

In the fictional Star Wars, a Jedi is given his power by the Force. All living things create the energy field that is the Force. We are surrounded and penetrated by it. The  galaxy is bound together by it.

In the galaxy of our body, something called fascia binds our body all together, from every cell to every nerve to every muscle to every organ to every bone.A restriction in a nearby “planet” like your glutes or hip flexors, or in a “satellite” that’s even more distant like your foot, could be the cause of that low back pain you’re feeling because everything within you is connected to everything else. 

Your ability to perform at your best and your experience of pain are hugely impacted by this continuity — whether you are a weekend warrior, an elite athlete, or simply a person who wants to make sure you’re good, to feel good enough to live a quality of life the way you want to live.

There’s a probability you heard a buzz about fascia and that’s why you’re reading this blog.
