Fascia as a communication system is discussed in this course, revealing fascia's numerous roles and effects on the body. Vibration through the fascial system is the major messenger used by the body to communicate needs and changes. All 12 different forms of fascia in our bodies are composed of elastin, collagen and a type II polysaccharide substance, the extracellular matrix gel. This piezo-electric fascial tissue responds to either pressure or elongation, emitting a flow of subatomic vibrational waves throughout the whole matrix. When fascial restrictions occur, messages cannot be relayed throughout the body, and action must be taken to alleviate such blockages. Methods and interventions to overcome such obstacles are discussed. The effect of these vibrations on our cellular physiology, including gene expression, continues to fascinate scientists.
