Rolf) on a fascinating journey exploring the missing link fascia (connective tissue) plays in sports, fitness, health and wellness. This documentary series offers an overview of the science, research, and culture related to all things fascia. Historically marginalized and/or misunderstood in medical and anatomical texts, "the secret life of fascia" shines an evidence-based spotlight on sports science, underlying mechanisms of how the body works, and, the therapeutic value of manual therapy. Quite dense with research and relevant information for athletic training, strength and conditioning, and activities of everyday life, this celebration of the global body features professional, Olympic, and amateur athletes from a myriad of sports. Beyond fascia, The Secret Life of Fascia showcases different manual therapies and biopsychosocial approaches as well as considering underuse and/or domestication as a potential cause for body-based problems.
