Fascia in the press

A recent edition of New Scientist magazine features fascia up front and personal with front cover prominence and a 3 page article inside.

It is great to see that fascia is now starting to receive the attention it has so long deserved. Since the first International Fascia Research Congress in 2007, fascia researchers and myofascial therapists worldwide have been discovering ever more about this fascinating bodywide matrix, talking, collaborating and sharing their findings.

I hate to brag, but I said it in 2018…

When I released my book Living Pain Free: Healing Chronic Pain with Myofascial Release back in 2018 my aim was to share this knowledge with the public at large. In particular I wanted to share with people how they could use myofascial self-help exercises and stretches to help themselves out of chronic pain.

It is therefore very satisfying to read this article about fascia in New Scientist (and reproduced in The Times). The latest finding by Harvard Medical School that fascial stretching not only feels good but actually reduces inflammatory processes in the body is good news for anyone suffering from chronic pain conditions.
