The Web of Life - Tom Myers on the Significance of Fascia


Fascia is the biological fabric that holds us together; the 3-D spider web of fibrous, gluey, and wet proteins that binds the connective tissue network together.

Fascia is the biological fabric that holds each and every dog together; providing structural support for the skeleton and holding all the organs and associated tissues in place. It contributes to posture and plays an important part in movement. It creates an intercellular communication matrix and transport system that carries nutrients to the body’s tissues, removes waste products and ensures the muscles are able to glide easily over each other. 

Tom Myers is a pioneering researcher in how fascia relates to the structural health of the body and author of the best-selling Anatomy Trains Elsevier 2001.
