Fascia is the body's organising tissue; it's what wraps the muscles, bones and
organs and what creates tendons and ligaments. Fascia is meant to distribute
strains evenly, when we sit, stand or move. Over time as stresses, injuries and daily
habits affect the body, fascia reacts, getting thicker and 'gluing' itself to surrounding structures.
Adverse tension held within the fascia can cause additional compression and reduced movement and therefore disease. Fascia also contains many of the body's receptors and 'bound' fascia may affect muscle tone and proprioception.
Myofascial Taping aims to:
Bring about body-wide balance of minimal tension and movement ability
Help decompress joints
Enable fascia to glide and slide relative to each other as nature intended
Create ease in the body and effortless movement
Improve tissue tone and proprioceptive feedback for movement control
