Your body's brain

This clip features Dr. Robert Schleip. He gives an easy to understand overview of fascia

Here's one I learned in December while studying for my MELT Instructor Training. I still find it mind blowing, so I wanted to share it with you:

Many neuroscientists believe your connective tissue is an extension of the brain.

Your fascial tissue, the largest sensory organ in your body, can be thought of as your body's brain. While it used to be considered superfluous cushioning, our connective tissue is now understood as protective, sensitive, intelligent, dynamic, and adaptive. It's not surprising, then, that our fascia's health determines whether or not we feel balanced, healthy, stable, and pain-free.

Fascinating, right? And it begs the question: what have you done to care for this tissue?
