Anna Rahe Notable Quotes

“If you get your fascia in peak optimized condition, almost every other system functions better. I would say, not almost—every single function.”
Anna Rahe

Your motion can literally support and or supplant all of your therapies if you do it rightand that’s what fascia wants. Fascia wants you to use your motion to manipulate its consistency to be able to create healthy environment inside of your body.
Anna Rahe
