Fascia is very important tissue. It surrounds and envelopes all of the body’s structures. It is connective tissue that is very much continuous throughout the body, never-ending. Trauma, repetitive movement patterns and metabolic dysfunction can influence the fascia to create holding patterns in the body’s tissue. Releasing these patterns will increase available range and quality of motion, as well as decrease symptoms ranging from pain to immobility. Without using oils, the therapist will engage the tissue, mobilize it, and will often utilize active or passive movement from the client to aid in this process.
