In this lesson, we introduce the anatomy and significance of connective tissue and fascia, and how to apply this knowledge in teaching.
Understand the anatomy and physiology of connective tissue, the functions and significance of fascia, and techniques for applying this knowledge in teaching.
Define connective tissue, fascia, ligament, tendon and tensegrity. Describe fascia in ways that help students to get a clearer sense for this pervasive tissue. Explain up to eight functions of fascia including what it communicates to the brain. Give the meaning and significance of the term “myofascia” and how the “myofascial meridian theory” differs from the traditional anatomy model. Provide techniques, teachings, practices and sequences for application of this knowledge.
