WHAT IS FASCIA?

WHY SHOULD YOU CARE? 

November 7, 2018

Fascia is a type of tissue that interconnects your muscles, tendons, bones, ligaments and even surrounds your organs.  It is possible to have adhesions ("knots") within your muscle fibers AND between the fibers and fascial layers.  In other words, one muscle's tightness can create pain and problems in a different area of your body.  If your hamstrings are tight, the fascia will pull on your calves and the bottoms of your feet (plantar fascia) causing tension.  Fascia is a continuous interconnected chain that runs from the top of your head all the way down to your toes!

TAKE YOUR FOOD FURTHER...

November 10, 2018

Our Registered Dietician, Shana Cerullo RDN DC-N, has these tips to help you integrate veggies into your diet!

1) Massage strong-tasting greens like kale or cabbage before eating them raw to remove some of the bitter taste.

2) Sweeten your veggies by adding sliced apples, pluots, or oranges to your green salad!

3) For dessert try making your own cocoa-dusted almonds. Simply toss almonds with unsweetened cocoa powder and a little bit of coconut oil and bake until toasted for about 5-10 minutes. This sweet treat is sure to satisfy your chocolate craving!

THE CORE IS MORE.

November 12, 2018

Imagine your abdomen as a cereal box: the bright picture in the front, the nutrition facts in the back, the opening on the top, and the solid base.  The four "sides" of your core are: the Transverse Abdominis (front cover), the Lumbar Multifidus (back), the Diaphragm (top opening) and the Pelvic Floor (the bottom support).  Just as flimsy cardboard becomes stable when pulled tight, your body (especially the spine) gains stability when each of these "sides" is activated in coordination.  Not only will this exponentially help with higher level sports (like a pirouette in ballet), the core is crucial to any movement requiring standing on one leg (think kicking a soccer ball, or climbing stairs)!
