"Connective tissue connects everything..."

That's what functional medicine doctor and Connective Detective (coined from his wife) continued to say as I asked him questions about hypermobility, related conditions, and solutions.

The answer to a functional body isn't isolation...

It is in the interconnectedness of all aspects of our well-being.

You see, when you are able to support the fascia that weaves through your body, you are able to manage hypermobility to promote better health.
