 About this Course

Fascia, or connective tissue, plays an enormous role in both emotional and physical health, and evolving studies show it is has a larger role than previously thought. Fascia is more innervated than muscle, can contract, and like a spring, it stores kinetic energy (it's how kangaroos and gazelles get their power). As we age, the stiff collagenous content of our fascia increases and the elastic substance starts to decline. It's one of the reasons movement is so important, yet a core science-based teaching model that explains what's happening inside the body is not one often seen in the United States. In this lecture, participants are introduced to the science of connective tissue based on Tim's recent studies in fascia dissection and science congresses. Students will see demonstration exercises using “intent” with a focus on connecting the myofascial meridians across the body by “pulling silk.” This lecture will also discuss how to use the power of connective tissue in bodywork for both the client and the therapist. 4 CEU (NCBTMB).
