Fascia is a single, interconnected web of tissue that runs from the top of your head to the bottoms of your feet. It surrounds every organ, every muscle, every bone, and every nerve fiber. And it has an astonishing range of functions. At Complete Wellness, New York City's #1 pain management clinic, director Dr. Daniel Fenster is using both high-tech and low-tech fascia therapies to change the lives of thousands of people for the better. With this book, you'll learn if you have fascia-related problems--and if so, how serious they are.
If self-therapy is the right choice for you, Dr. Fenster outlines a simple, effective "Fix Your Fascia" Plan, a holistic program including stretching, foam rolling, destressing (meditation), fascia-friendly eating, hydration, and self-massage. Dr. Fenster also offers an insider's perspective on the most powerful tools in fascial manipulation: medical massage, acupuncture, cryotherapy, and trigger point therapy and trigger point injections.
