What is Fascia?

"The absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence."- Martin Rees

Fascia is the material of the body science neglected to study until recently. Read more about when the media reported that scientists had "discovered" a "new organ" in 2018.

Fascia is the agelessly adaptable and resilient, seamless soft tissue structure holistically protecting, containing and connecting everything in the body from the inside out and outside in. Fascia is a specialized material of the body that has an appearance similar to a spider's web or a sweater. Fibers vary from delicate to tough and is very densely woven, covering and interpenetrating every muscle, bone, nerve, artery and vein, as well as, all of our internal organs.  

Fascia is the distributor of force and the transportation system of all fluids and information responsible for all movement, sensation and protection of the body, mind and spirit. Like a worldwide wide within, fascia is a unifying and organizational structure connecting all of the systems in the body and the environment where our cells live. Autonomically, Fascia responds and reacts to our internal and external environment. Throughout our lives, our bodies of water are adapting to become oceanic or statuesque. The human body has the ability to be as agelessly healthy as the Earth.

Fascia is the fabric of the body that like the Earth freezes and gradually melts, rehydrates and dehydrates, adapts, thrives and survives with changes while in some ways remain the same. Sol describes the fluid or oceanic consistency and gel is the more solidified state of our adaptable soft tissues. Thixotropy is a property Fascia and the Earth share in being able to continuously change from a sol or fluid state into a gel or solid state and vice versa. Fascia is the container of our bodies of water and continuously changes in hydration levels, consistency, shape, and state dependent on how we live and love.
