Fascia is the soft-tissue component of the connective tissue system.

Permeating the human body, the 'Fascial Matrix' forms a whole-body continuous three-dimensional support structure.

For the body to function as a whole, there must be a system that reaches to and into every cell. For the body to function at its absolute peak performance, all parts and processes must be interconnected by a system that delivers energy and information at the fastest possible means nature has available. The living matrix is the system of systems that accomplishes these integrative activities.

Biotensegrity is a relatively new approach which considers how forces are resisted and transmitted in the human body through 'tensegrity', a structural system of distinct compression elements which float in a tensioned network.

Scientific research indicates that the collagen molecules which make up our fascial matrix (connective tissue) are crystalline structures with a remarkable property … they act as semi-conductors.

Semi-conductors conduct energy, amplify signals and move information.  Piezo is a Greek word meaning ’to press’.

With sustained gentle pressure on collagenous tissues, a bioelectric current is produced. This physical property can be used to help restore intercommunication and function between physiological systems and structures.

All physical structures, organic and inorganic have resonant frequencies and also exhibit certain responses to vibrations, whether externally applied or resulting from some function or interaction within the overall structure.

The human body is no different and given its complexity and the number of systems it houses, modern science and medicine are increasing their focus on the fascinating interactions between vibrational frequencies and human function.

The brain and peripheral nervous system, the endocrine and immune systems, and indeed all the organs of our body and all the emotional responses we have, share a common chemical and bioelectric language and are constantly communicating with one another.

Our quality of life emerges from the balance, harmony and integration of the bodymind.

Healing of Self: Take time to turn your attention inward and practice developing strength, stability, and flexibility in mind, body, and spirit.

Leading edge scientific research also offers evidence of neuroplasticity: the ability of the nervous system to reorganize and make new neural connections. The following movement practices support neural change and integration towards self-regulation and resilience.
