Strolling under the skin

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, the founder of Osteopathy, mentioned the importance of fascia in his early writings. Fascia, also known as Connective Tissue, is a continuous network of fibers that extends through out our whole body and fills all the space there is. These fibers are short or long, branch off in all directions and seem completely disorganized. They may are woven close together or run far apart, are loose or packed tight together. But this network of fibers is by far more than just filling material or padding. Fascia surrounds and connects anatomical structures like muscles, arteries, veins, nerves, organs etc. and does its best to adapt to accidents, surgeries, traumas, bad habits or our sedentary lifestyle. The understanding of fascia/connective tissue is necessary in order to comprehend the dynamic balance of the human body. Jean- Claude Guimberteau, an MD and Plastic/Reconstructive Surgeon, used video endoscopy to investigate fascia in the living body. In his video - Strolling under the Skin - he allows us an impressive insight into the importance of connective tissue.
