An example of how everything is connected:
When you buy chicken from the grocery store, it’s covered in a thin white film that most people peel off before cooking the chicken. This thin white film is known as fascia.

One way you can imagine and actually feel this connection is if you are wearing a t-shirt and grab a fist-full of the front of your t-shirt and pull forward, you may notice the t-shirt putting stress on your neck, shoulders, upper back, and even lower back. Fascial restrictions can change posture over time as well as create other mischief in the body. Because everything is connected, you can stub your toe and end up with a headache.
