IPRO Director’s Message June/July

What about Bob?

Worth investigating…A whole body approach to treatment. Bob Fong writes that Tensegrity is the marriage between tension and integrity.  The fascia or connective tissue, is a web running through the body.  It is the chief compensating mechanism.  When we experience traumatic incidents over time;  both large and small, the fascia counteracts pain and mobility issues.  Internal structures begin to work in ways counter to their original Intent.  A common question to many is, ‘why the limp?’ Because we compensate. We develop a new lifestyle which is comfortable and works.  At least for the short term!  Ultimately, the body runs out of options.
