• Nourishes and hydrates the body’s fascia, the connective tissue that binds together the muscles, the skeleton and all internal organs. Unhealthy, dehydrated fascia can lead to loss of flexibility, poor posture and trigger point pain.

• Realigns scar tissue formation due to surgery, prolonged immobilization or poor posture
• Facilitates the circulation of lymph, reducing metabolic waste and toxins stored in the body. Supports a healthy immune system.
