Perhaps you have heard the term "fascia" recently. Perhaps not. Fascia makes up a global connective tissue that wraps our bones and muscles in a saran wrap like material. As we are discovering it plays a VERY important role in our overall mobility and movement. The first real practicioner of "fascia" at least in my eyes was the great Bruce Lee. He maybe did not use the term fascia but he understood that there was something that encirlcled his muscles and bones and joints and he mastered its elasticity to create incredible power and movement via his martial art practice. We are just beginning to discover what fascia can do and the role it plays in our body. Below is a really great article to "get your feet wet" in the world of fascia.
