The Fascinating network of fascia

Each persons has, on average, between 18 and 23 kg of connective tissue.

This tissue :

  • Stores a quarter of the total amount of water in the body
  • Provides cells and organs with nutrients
  • Responds to stress and strain, and adapts accordingly
  • Continously regenerates itself, albeit slowly (it usually takes between 7 and 14 months for collagen fibres to be replaced)
  • Increasingly loses water as we age
  • Becomes matted with age and inactivity
