“Fascia is commonly thought of as connective tissue, comprising tendons and ligaments. There are so many different varieties of fascia, even the experts have a hard time agreeing on a definition.

The density and organization of fascial tissue range from thick cords, like the Achilles tendon, to thin sheets wrapping and separating as in the intramuscular septa, all the way to a gooey, gluey substance that fills the spaces between our internal organs.

Fascial tissue binds things together, but also holds them apart. It makes them glide and slide, but provides integrity. It acts as a body-wide communication system, providing six times more information to the brain that the sensory organs combined. The fascial lines or continuities act as transmission belts, helping the body manage and distribute forces through the body.” by Laureen DuBeau Global development and implementation of the Merrithew training and certification program, has been teaching Pilates since 1995 and travels worldwide as a Merrithew Master Instructor Trainer.
