Tai Chi & Qigong Nurture the Body's Fascia
Below you will find some fascinating articles and links to information about fascia, the network of connective tissue that holds our organs and tissues together, protects our nervous system and helps us move in a harmonious way.
Anatomical concepts have largely been based in the past on the interaction of bones, muscles, tendons and ligaments, giving the study of the body a strong mechanical, "pieces and parts" orientation that coincides with the reductionist methodology of Western medicine. Since around 1990, however, the role of fascia has become much more important in thinking about the body and in developing a wholistic paradigm of how the body moves and functions.
Below you will find some links to help get you started in understanding the new paradigm of "tensigrity" that is emerging.
