Re-storing, re-forming and re-setting the Fascia

The Fascia, the Anatomy Trains and the Pilates Methodology ~ By Karin Locher

Fascia is the sheath of connective tissue that covers everything in our bodies–from our organs to our muscles. In the picture above, the white areas that are visible attaching to muscles are dense collections of fascia.

Did you know that there are 10 x more sensory nerve endings in your fascia than in your muscles? That the fascia is our system of stability (Thomas Myers 2012),our greatest sensory organ (Robert Schleip) and our biomechanical regulator?

Through the design of the Pilates Method,  a consistent inner myofascial contact  before and during movement is made; bringing awareness of your fascia’s connectivity. From this connectivity you are able to renegotiate to restore the elasticity and continuous connectivity of its fibres, and thus the health and functionality of the mechanical regulation of the body.

Re-storing, the ‘give and take’ in the elasticity of the tissues to re-pattern movements, renews mechanical functionality and maximizes stability to support the structure – quite literally, ‘shape shifting’ the skeletal architecture.

Using Thomas Myer’s revolutionary Anatomy Trains map, we are able to see and learn the direction of force and connectivity along the fiber. We are able to recognize and influence compensatory patterns that have derailed transmission, loosing mechanical information along its pathways, thus creating functional disorder; the fascial patterns that lead to our symptoms.
