Wow. Some interesting points here.
This video drove a few points home:
Fluid dynamics overlooked? In vitro fibroblasts are very sensitive to slow gradients--how slow/fast we "push" squeeze, or move water around.
"Interstitial fluid flow induces myofibroblast differentiation and collagen alignment in vitro."
Janda observation: close relationship between strong sympathetic activation and fascial tonicity.
Strong sympthetic -> increased TGF-β1 [alters immune system and potent activator of fibroblast=>fascial tonicity and fibrosis]
Want to understand connective tissue? It works well to adapt properties of connective tissue to our own social structures.
Do you include competition? Do you exchange information? Do you collaborate? Network in efforts?
Understand organ of network.
What does this have to do with yoga?
Perhaps, the speed of movement matters?
In Forrest, we move pretty slowly. Does this slow gradient affect
With small amounts of palpation [if you cannot already see it] can give some indication about how "geared up" someone is.
Fluid dynamics is a cool allusional nod to our primal water-bound selves.
Slow superficial stimulus might be more potent than deep, frictional bodywork?
