Webinar description:

Fascia Research Update: Connective tissue research related to interoception, proprioception and sympathetic fascia innervation

According to a recent calculation of our team, the bodywide fascial net constitutes by far our richest sensory organ. This includes its capacity for triggering myofascial pain syndromes but also to provide the basis of our sense of proprioception. It is hard to find a more exciting field within modern medical research today. How important are the newly discovered PIEZO2 receptors for our postural regulation and movement coordination? And what role do they play in idiopathic scoliosis? What do we know about the myriad of free nerve endings in our subcutaneous connective tissues, viscera and other deeper tissues that are involved in the sense of interoception? How do those interoceptive sensations relate to brain circuits associated with our sense of ’self’? What connections exist between fascial stiffness, fascial stimulation and the autonomic nervous system? And what do we know about the huge number of sympathetic nerve endings in fascia, apart from their vasoconstrictor function? Be ready for a fascinating review of the latest research findings with important implications for manual as well as movement therapists.

Webinar schedule:

Wednesday, January 6th: 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM Eastern Standard Time, US

Robert Schleip PhD MA directs the Fascia Research Project of Ulm University in Germany. Having been a Rolfing instructor and Feldenkrais practitioner for over 20 years, he felt frustrated with the speculative nature of scientific explanations backing up most areas of current bodywork. When he entered the field of connective tissue science as an active laboratory researcher in 2003, he became so thrilled that he soon became one of the driving international forces in the newly emerging field of fascia research. His own research findings on active contractile properties of human fasciae have been honored with the Vladimir Janda Award of Musculoskeletal Medicine. He is research director of the European Rolfing Association, and co‐initiator of the 1st Fascia Research Congress hosted at Harvard Medical School (Boston 2007) as well as of the subsequent congresses.
