The VITAL Importance of Healthy Fascia for Whole Mind/Body Health with Anna Rahe

| Ep. 073

by Sascha Kalivoda


Sometimes I struggle with giving a title to my podcasts… I try to figure out how I can hook people in so that they will listen to something that I find so freaking fascinating and I try to implore how crazy important the topic is.

The subject of fascia BLOWS my mind, and I want everyone to listen to this!!

Fascia is finally become a more widely discussed area of health and wellness, but it still does not receive the attention it deserves in my opinion.

It literally impacts EVERYTHING to do with our mind-body system, something that Anna Rahe of GST Body has known for decades.

Anna developed a method of movement years ago when she was trying to heal and understand the root of her chronic pain and digestive and lung problems, despite being a yoga and pilates instructor.

She decided that spending 2 to 3 hours per night to undo her pain ignited during the day just wasn’t going to fit into her life forever.

From this pain, introspection and great curiosity, GST Body was born, and through her methods and tools, she has helped many find ease and vitality in their bodies.

This is the first of hopefully several conversations… I have many more questions and don’t even know yet the full potential of where this topic can go, but I want to find out!

In this interview, Anna tells us about:

  • Her pain that started intensely at 18 years old after releasing emotional trauma
  • How all her certifications as a trainer, yoga and pilates instructor did not help her and in fact exacerbated her problems
  • Her revelation that fascia was the thing she was missing
  • How she learned how to get the results she was seeking via movement rather than with the tools she was using
  • Junk movement = junk fascia
  • How focusing on movement brings permanence to positive change
  • Fascia being our ‘energetic’ system and is a ‘distributive’ system
  • How unhealthy fascia is an electrical block to the body as plugged arteries are a block to the circulatory system
  • Not all fascia changes yield the same results
  • How fascia has the greatest sensory network of all tissue
  • How the 5 different mechanical receptors require different inputs
  • How the fascial net is wired to the nervous system net
  • The need for many types of movement
  • How the body remodels according to its influences
  • How frequently we need short movement breaks
  • The fact that most people have over-contracted fascia
  • How fascia likes wide ranges of motion and the three types of action it requires
  • The three elements that fascia requires
  • How rolling doesn’t move the pump of fascia
  • The need for a variety of movement
  • If muscle is over-contracting, fascia is under-animating
  • My story of releasing my SI joint after days of it being stuck
  • The need to contract muscles in a certain sequence in order for fascia to flow
  • How our biomechanics are no longer natural
  • If tissue is not gliding, adrenals are held captive
  • 3 tips for what you can start incorporating daily
  • The reflex of fascia that initiates the desire to move
  • How your anxiety and pain are alarms for you to move your fascia
  • Points for healing bad hips
  • New understanding fo the brain-body relationship
  • and SO much more!

This is the tip of the iceberg and I can’t wait to get into more. I love this topic so much as it invites us to get curious and know ourselves at a deeper level; when we own it, it is totally empowering and up to us.

That is powerful!

We depend far too much on outside influences. It’s time to take it ALL back… and knowing your fascia, I believe, is a path to knowing your SELF.
