Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has for not only centuries, but millenniums, used a Meridian System to explain workings of the human body. It is not an accident that maps of these meridians lie directly over the lines of fascia researchers are mapping.
Below is a link to an article from 2012.....full of information about Fascia. Over the past 5 years, so much has come to light about our fascia. It is great that what has been overlooked for so long....is now being put together into usable wholes.
Almost every day there are Aha! Moments in the study of fascia.
It is exciting that in our lifetime there is a linking of the Eastern Traditional Chinese Medicine to Fascia Research in the West.
Compound that with the advances in technology allowing measurements and data collection to a degree which has never been possible before....so much is being documented and discovered.
This 2012 article is still relevant:
