What is Fascia? How does it Affect You?

Moira Riccio

In the fitness industry right now, "fascia" is the latest buzzword….but watch out, it's could be here to stay!

Fascia is defined as:  A sheet or band of fibrous connective tissue enveloping, separating, or binding together organs and other soft structures of the body.

"Fascia" is multi-layered, and a whole network of connective tissue surrounding individual elements of the body…including organs, muscles, nerves, and blood vessels.  In essence, fascia assists with turning muscle contraction into coordinated movements with minimal wear and tear on your joints.  Research shows that breaking up the tight connective tissue~fascia~surrounding your muscles and joints will help you to move more freely.

When the fascia gets too tight, the muscles are constricted and "tight," and then pulling on ligaments, tendons and ultimately even shifting bone structure.  Ask a massage therapist about how he/she can help you or try using a foam roller yourself.  As you grow older, if you want to stay active, you will need to figure out a way to keep "Fascia fit."
