This approach delves deep into the connective tissues of our body – the fascia, which plays a crucial role in everything from our flexibility to our immune system. At our core, spinal health is intricately linked to lymphatic health, and this therapy masterfully connects the two for holistic well-being.
The Essence of Fascia-Focused Bodywork
Fascia-focused bodywork isn’t just a treatment; it’s an exploration into the interconnectedness of our body. The fascia, a network of connective tissue, wraps around our muscles, bones, and organs, forming a continuous web of support and communication. It’s fascinating how this network connects to the vertebral meningeal lymphatic vessels, directly influencing our spinal and lymphatic health.
