Truly sacrificing themselves for the greater good, SoleFit pedorthists Neil Rosenthal and Ryan Grant travelled to sunny Los Angeles last week to check out a forward thinking medical clinic that has been getting a lot of buzz lately called the Human Garage.
Fascia can transmit information at speeds faster than the speed of light.
The more we learn about the human body, the more we realize how much we don’t yet truly understand about how it manages to make the millions of minute to minute changes that are required to keep us alive. A principle perspective at the Human Garage was to look more closely at the neurobiology of our fascia. Fascia is the somewhat mysterious integrative tissue that connects/encompasses the entire body and provides your bodies’ framework. Fascia can work at speeds faster than the speed of light in the transmission of information and this information carries neurotransmitters (the chemical messengers interacting to/from our brains) that is making constant changes to our physical body. The brain is sending and receiving instructions to and from our fascia!
Here are a few thoughts that summarize our visit to the Human Garage.
*A picture really is worth a thousand words and check out the difference in Neil’s face and neck before and after treatment!
*The Human Garage does biochemical testing using saliva and urine, prior to treatment. There were definitely a few surprises here!
We love our new cool gadgets and the TheraGun (L) and Hyersphere (R) are two cool new mobility tools we were able to try in order to help improve mobility. Definitely not something you need but if you are into rolling and have an extra $150-500 to spend, the effect of using these tools was pretty amazing.
*Fascia is the bodies’ connective tissue and it is suggested that memories and emotion are stored in our fascia. This information could add a whole new dimension to manual treatment.
While in LA, Neil and Ryan also visited the Bulletproof Labs in Santa Monica. A great place to take a look at some of the emerging tech surrounding the world of health care!

*SoleFit Pedorthist Neil taking a ride in the virtual float tank in attempts to help the brain produce more theta waves (relaxation, healing, deep thought).
