What is Connective Tissue?
Fascia, or connective tissue, is considered the “organ of form” in the body. It is a very tough, strong, and fibrous tissue in the body. All of our muscles, organs, nerves, and blood vessels are ensheathed in connective tissue. Tendons and ligaments, the pulleys and levers of the body, are made up of connective tissue. When connective tissue is healthy it is pliable and elastic, it allows the muscles, tendons, and ligaments to shorten and lengthen with flexibility.
