Fascial Walk - Course content
Contralateral movements are playing a central role in the concept of walking properly and deliberately. Human beings stand on two legs and walk upright. Contralateral movements of the spine are important, because they enable the optimum nutrition for the intervertebral discs and the adequate engagement of many important joints. For this purpose, we need more fascial activity. The results of recent studies about the organ fascia change our understanding of functional, proper and, most importantly, healthy walking.
