- Differentiating structures by sliding the fascial sheaths between them.
- Integrating structures by engaging the connectivity of the fascial matrix surrounding them.
- Facilitating micro-condensing and micro-expanding movement of the fascia to increase turgidity, flexibility, strength, and mobility.
- Initiating movement from the ligaments.
- Facilitating freedom, resilience, strength and integration of the ligaments through touch and repatterning.
- Releasing ligaments from the restrictions of surrounding tissues.
- Integrating ligaments into their corresponding fascial planes.
Fascia provides the tensegrity matrix of the whole body. It wraps around all other structures as one continuous spiraling, multilayered, and multidimensional network of expansive sheaths, enclosed containers and specialized attachments. These specialized attachments are the ligaments. The ligaments set the boundaries of movement between the bones. They coordinate and guide muscular responses by directing the path of movement between the bones and provide specificity, clarity, and efficiency for the alignment and movement of the bones. When all of the ligaments of a joint are actively engaged, the movement of that joint becomes highly specific and is carried effortlessly to surrounding and successive joints. Fascia supports the psychophysical quality of micromovements of condensing and expanding consciousness without specific content within the embracing context of unity. The ligaments support the psychophysical quality of detailed specificity. This course includes:
