£14.99

A greater knowledge and understanding of muscular connective tissue known as fascia has been gained in recent years in the fields of physiotherapy, sports science, and medicine. Fascia plays a large role in health, well-being, and mobility it transmits the power of the muscles, communicates with the nervous system, and serves as a sense organ. Fascia ensures the protection of internal organs and forms the basis for a naturally beautiful body shape.

Therefore, anyone who wants to be active, mobile, and pain-free in everyday life should be aware of the importance of their fascia! Fascia can act in a similar way the same way to your muscles. It responds to stress and nerve signals, and if it becomes tangled or stuck together, pain and mobility problems can result. Fascia should therefore be specifically targeted by exercise, and 10 minutes twice a week is all you need.

This step-by-step colour guide leads you through a series of exercises, including ones for the back, neck, hips and feet, and as well as those specific to men, women, and athletes.
