    Interoception: The Emotional Side to Fascial Fitness

    Interoception: The Emotional Side to Fascial Fitness

    Mind-body awareness is more complex than just kinesthetic and proprioceptive awareness. Research shows that we also have an emotional side to body awareness called interoception. Interoceptors, or the emotional side of fascial fitness, make up 80% of the peripheral nerves found in our fascial system and can be greatly influenced through appropriate movement patterns. This enlightening session will describe the impact of interoceptive perceptions on client recovery, and demonstrate interoceptive cues that can be integrated for enhanced mind-body connections for your client. Join Dr. Emily Splichal for the latest episode as we explore the emotional side to fascial fitness programs and learn how important this information is to all health and movement specialists.

AI Bot?

This sounds like it is narrated by an AI chat bot. The subject matter is good but it would be much easier to listen to if narrated by a human.

Subpar in the world of podcasting

While the topics (and idea to earn CEU’s) are interesting and seem promising, these podcasts are poorly executed. It’s like a robot is speaking, and many refer to a presentation of which we, the listener, aren’t viewing (remember - it’s a podcast). Don’t waste your time.
