What is Fascia?

According to Taber’s Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary, fascia is defined as “a fibrous membrane covering, supporting, and separating muscles. It also unites the skin with underlying tissue. Fascia may be superficial, a nearly subcutaneous covering permitting free movement of the skin, or it may be deep, enveloping and binding muscles.”

The AMTA Fascial Therapy Continuing Education Program provides a fundamental overview of fascial therapy concepts.
