What is Fascia and why is it so important when having a Massage?

Fascia is the connective tissue that links our entire body together. Fascia wraps around our organs,
muscles, bones, ligaments, tendons and even cells. Lack of mobility in the fascia eventually can lead
to chronic pain, chronic postural imbalances, tightness, stiffness and postural dysfunctions.

Fascia not only holds muscles together and keeps them in the correct places, it also separates each
muscle so the muscle can perform its individual task. When the fascia is tight, our muscles cannot
perform their movement tasks correctly.

Fascia can be felt 6x more than muscles. So often when you are feeling tight or sore while stretching,
you are feeling your fascia.

Myofascial release and cupping is used to relieve the tension built up in our fascia system by
breaking up lesions, increasing fascial mobility, increase blood supply, toxin release that builds up
and decrease general stiffness and pain.

TIP: Water is extremely important in keeping the fascia healthy. Without the correct water intake
daily, our fascia can become stiff and locked up. Drink 2-3L water daily to maintain mobility and
