There’s increasing appreciation within the medical field and allied health sectors that the body and mind are not separate. This helps explain why a body-mind approach to health foresees and realises greater outcomes, as individuals are treated holistically.
The fascia is a model by which we can naturally explore body-mind dynamics due to its ‘systems wide’ applicability.
For example, it’s becoming increasingly clear that the body ‘holds’ and remembers positive or negative memories, including suppressed or repressed emotional material, as well as trauma.
So working with your body (the fascia) can be a way in which this material can be consciously worked through, helping you to see and experience yourself differently and relate to yourself more clearly and easily.
