FASCIA is a layer of fibrous tissue that permeates the human body. It's a connective tissue that surrounds muscles, groups of muscles, blood vessels, and nerves, binding these structures together. It consists of several layers and extends uninterrupted from the head to the tip of the toes.
Myofascial stretching is the stretching of a muscular chain within a fascial chain. The ultimate goal is not to gain flexibility but freedom at the level of the articulation. Also it has a very important role in the quality of posture since kinesthetic information is carried in the fascia.
