People are typically unaware of the fascia system in their bodies, let alone the best fascia tools available to reduce or eliminate conditions caused by fascia interruption. After all, the skin is visible, a common element of life, while the fascia lies, unseen, beneath the surface. The fascia system lies below the skin and runs throughout the body. It is a tightly woven web of membranes that cover every part from head to toe and works as an interconnection between the muscles, bones, tendons, arteries, and veins to encapsulate the whole in a suspension like a membrane. The fascia works to support and cushion essential organs like the heart, liver, lungs, and the spinal column against the effects of gravity and brutal impacts while maintaining the smooth skin preferred by people around the world. When the facia is disturbed through surgery, blunt-force trauma, over-exercise, or the aging process, it results in an occurrence called “myofascial restriction.” At that time, patients become aware of fascia issues and begin looking for the best fascia tools.
