Until recently, fascia has received little attention in the medical, sports science, and movement world despite its major role in every single move you make. Scientists have discovered fascia as the “new organ”. Fascia is known to be a system of one continuous network of connective tissue and is one of the richest sensory organs in our body, embedded in nerve endings and mechanoreceptors. Discover fascia lines, or myofascial meridians, that lie “beyond the foot”. These lines of tension provide pathways to navigate injuries, improve posture and health issues. They dictate movement and transfer of energy throughout the entire body. Many of the fascia lines include the feet. Understanding fascia lines will help you see the body’s interconnectedness, guide clinical choices, and promote a “whole body” approach to movement and health.
