Fascial Lines Don't Need Stretching

The Fascial Web

Myofascial lines need be effective as a whole, with other lines, and with the neighboring layers of tissue. You cannot isolate a line of tissue, nor a specific region or part, and certainly the body doesn't function that way. Instead our body aims for rhythmical communication through it's entirety.

Our body is a tensegrity system, meaning that our compression structures (bones) are held together with tensional guide wire system of muscle, ligaments, tendons and of course fascia. Tensegrity systems share the burden of absorbing force, so that each part is important, and a change to any one part will influence the whole.
