Procedos sees each INDIVIDUAL as a WHOLE with individual nuances, history and unique asymmetries.
Only when we understand the needs of the individual and how these correlate with the principles of nature can we develop specific, individual interventions. Through this process, the ultimate goal is to increase health, an individual FUNCTIONAL health that is unique to the individual.
This approach differs from the concept that the organism is a mechanical object, we believe in a neurobiological model - that the body is a self-regulating system.
Four primary tissues in the body
- Epithelial tissue that covers the body's surfaces. Protection, excretion and absorption
- Muscle - tissue contraction
- Nerve - tissue for sensitivity and innervation
- Connective tissue (CT) - support, nutrition, protection, coordination, separation, balance, movement and force absorption
What does Fascia do?
- Transfer forces
- Separates - creates space for nerves, lymph vessels and blood vessels
- Adapts after application of stress eg scar tissue, eg mechanical forces
Connective tissue is the glue that holds the body together!
- The ability to regain its natural shape after deformation
- The rate of deformation under load
- The ability to maintain a new shape
