With approximately 250 million sensory nerve endings, the body-wide fascial network constitutes our richest sensory organ. Interestingly, the largest component of it is provided by sympathetic nerve endings.

This webinar will explore what is currently known about these rich connections between our ANS and fascial properties, how these connections are affected by Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and how they interact with our immune system.

An exploration of these intriguing aspects will include discussion on how our fascial microbiome can be influenced by movement and mechano-stimulation as well as hormonal and emotional influences. 



Dr. Robert Schleip is a former long-term instructor of the Rolfing as well as the Feldenkrais method, who has now turned his focus into scientific research related to fascia. He is director of the Fascia Research Group (Technical University of Munich & Ulm University, Germany), Founding Director of the Fascia Research Society, and Research Director of the European Rolfing Association. In addition to an MA degree in clinical psychology he has a PhD degree in human biology, and is now research professor at the Diploma University of Applied Sciences in Germany. His laboratory research on active fascial contractility was awarded by the Vladimir Janda Award for Musculoskeletal Medicine.
