The Fascia

Ida Rolf was the pioneer in discovering how effective working deeply with the connective tissue is.  All deep work involving fascia is because of her.    Many years later we have myo-fascial work, and numerous practitioners who are using adhesive tape to help muscles effectively function best in their proper alignment with the skeleton are working with the fascia.

This connective tissue is connected in planes throughout the body.  It takes time for the correction to “hold”, hence the tape, and as Ida taught, numerous consecutive sessions to really integrate the work in an effective way.

I am become more informed about the way the fascia is like a web in the body, and how it wraps around muscles forming planes in the body.  Knowing these planes allows myo-fascial work to be much more effective.
