      Love this! It’s all about the fascia! I have one of those dense foam rollers. Wow, it really gets in there and relieves the tightness. You just have to initially breathe though the pain. It does get easier.

      So simple, if you let it in.

      I found this article a helpful illustration of the role of fascia.

      The traditional biomechanical theory of the musculoskeletal system says that muscles attach to bones via tendons that cross the joints and pull bones toward each other, restricted by other “machine parts” called ligaments. But all these anatomical terms, and the separations they imply, are false. No ligaments exist on their own; instead they blend into the periosteum—vascular connective tissue that serves as cling-wrap around the bones—and the surrounding muscles and fascial sheets. What this means is that you weren’t assembled in different places and glued together—rather, all your parts grew up together within the glue.

      Somewhat obvious if you stop to think about it, but it’s true that sometimes our ways of being and exercising fall more into the machine theory of the body than the plant theory :)
