“Sports injuries are, for the most part, not muscle problems, but fascial injuries. Fascia is now considered to be one of our most important sensory organs. The connective tissue even sends signals to the brain – the very heart of our consciousness. All our body movements are determined by sensors in fascia. If they fail, people can no longer control their movements” – Robert Schleip

Until relatively recently our knowledge of fascia was based more on experience than concrete knowledge. Schleip’s scientific work has changed all that.

Dr Robert Schleip is a titan of the fascial world and in this updated edition of his classic Fascial Fitness he shares findings from recent fascial research and the methods and equipment he considers most beneficial for fascial health.

Whether you’re a manual practitioner, personal trainer or yoga teacher, this book will show you not only why an understanding of fascia is so important but also how to implement effective techniques in to your own work. Fascia responds remarkably to treatment!

‘Fascial Fitness’ is written without academic jargon to be accessible to a much wider audience

Fascia and connective tissue – what are they?

Dr Schleip’s innovative biological studies expand upon what we know about the nature of fascia. It is even more crucial for the process of healthy movement than we previously thought.

The principles of targeted fascia training

The condition of fascia influences how our injuries heal as well as our muscular efficiency, posture and coordination. It also determines much more – as you will discover in this book!

Fascial exercises that improve pain, mobility, and general well-being

Fascia training increases the capacity of the tendons and ligaments, avoids painful friction in joints and spinal discs, protects the muscles from injury, and keeps the body in shape.

Since its first edition in 2014, ‘Fascial Fitness’ has sold over 100,000 copies and been published in four languages

‘Moving Stretch – Work your Fascia to Free your Body’ by Suzanne Wylde

Fascia is a dense connective tissue which acts like a wetsuit under our skin, holding everything in place yet allowing the tissues to glide. When fascial restrictions occur it can become tight, thick and stuck together in places, which in turn can cause pain and restricted movement.

Moving Stretch presents a form of resistance stretching which combines movement and tension, helping us to work on our fascia, reconditioning it and releasing any areas that are tight and stuck. As well as providing valuable insights into stretching, fascia, resistance stretching and how to assess your own flexibility, this even has a section designed to help you stay motivated.
