Overview

Anyone who wants an active, mobile and painless everyday life should be aware of the importance of their connective tissue! Understanding of connective tissue has greatly increased in recent years in physiotherapy, sports science and medicine. Muscular connective tissue - known as fascia - plays an important role in health, well-being and mobility, as it transmits the power of the muscles, communicates with the nervous system and serves as a sense organ. Fascia ensures the protection of the internal organs and forms the basis for a beautiful body shape. Connective tissue can work in the same way as your other muscles, responding to stress and nerve signals and, if it gets tangled or glued together, causing pain and problems with movement. Fascia should therefore be specifically exercised - but 10 minutes twice a week is all you need. In this book, leading German fascia researcher and Rolfing practitioner Robert Schleip describes how recent research findings can be translated into a practical exercise program for everyday use.
