Where am I?

SOMA session TWO

SOMA session TWO begins the process of redesigning the fascia of the physiology. When Ida Rolf was asked "If someone was in an auto accident, where would you start?" She replied, "With the Big toe!"

Fascia is not an inert structure. Physiology used to be the study of the organs that were connected by fascia. Medical students cleared away the fascia when studying cadavers to get to the important organs. Now it is understood that fascia is a living substance that is highly innervated by nerves, vascularized by capillaries, and is important for proper lymphatic function.

A significant part of one's brains activity with every moment is to determine where and how the body exists in space. The nerve endings within fascia are important for describing the form of the physiology to the brain. Furthermore, this information is increased by the tensions felt in the tendons and ligaments. And the brain naturally computes all of this information while the individual is involved with the dynamic explosive motion of dance or exercise as well as the dynamic sedentary activity of eating cheezy poofs while breathing.

Whenever one is walking, their nervous system is processing information provided by the feet. With every step ones weight is shifted into one singular foot and the structures of that foot have to dynamically stabilize the whole body until it gets a brief respite while being raised before it gets stepped on again. if the feet lose their ability to support the forces of the body, one's sense of balance has to shift and this degrades ones structural vitality.

SOMA session TWO aims to remodel ones feet and calves in order to optimize their structure to support the forces of our daily adventures.
