Dr. Jean-Claude Guimberteau, MD - Dr. JeanClaud Guimberteau 2005 used fiber optic surgical equipment to record and demonstrate what live fascia looks like. Strolling Under the Skin for the very first time showed living connective tissue magnified so we could see the tiny microtubules never before known to us.

Lynne McTaggert - compiled research on consciousness in her book, The Field. She sites Karl Pribman, Kunio Yasue, Stuart Hammeroff and Scott Hagan whose research brought them to the theory that there is a system of light pipes that form the Internet of the body and share information through photons. It's these light pipes of the fascial system that account for the speed at which information travels through the body much faster than nerve impulses can carry electric signals, as previously thought.
Dr. Levin presented several talks on biotensegrity including how biotensegrity can fit into a quantum mechanics model, how we are made entirely of soft matter- or as he put it in a quote taken from a university soft matter lab, “biology is soft matter come to life”, why we should rethink muscles, his take on the fuss over fascia and much more. You can read some of Dr. Levin’s papers here: http://biotensegrity.com/papers.phpJean Claude Guimberteau and his Strolling Under the Skin videos and his work on fluid volumes in the fascia: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20571142Dr. Niall Galloway is a pelvic surgeon at Emory University and he takes a biotensegrity approach to repairing pelvic floor prolapse rather than using the mesh. You can link to a number of his papers here: http://emoryhealthcare.org/urology/multidisciplinary-team/galloway-niall.htmlSome of the clinicians who were talking about the importance of finding the area of greatest restriction in order to resolve physical issues: Ed Stiles, Kelly Clancy, Jan Trewartha, Nancy Crooks, Deborah Chasse, Lucy Whyte Ferguson, Brad Fullerton, Leonid Blyum.Robert Schleip on how nerves innervate fascia http://www.fasciaresearch.com/InnervationExcerpt.pdfThe Man Who Lost His Body documentary on BBCRobert Schleip on interoception and the crucial role it plays in avoiding or resolving depression, anxiety, IBS, and schizophrenia. http://true.massage-research.com/2013/01/fascia-as-organ-of-communication-by.htmlChristopher Marc Gordon and his team at Ulm University on the effecacy of self myofascial release: http://www.fasciacongress.org/2015/Abstracts/100_Gordon.pdfPreeti Raghavan and her team at NYU researching spasticity in stroke patients and how they respond to hyluranon injections locally to the affected tissue- addressing the local tissue like this affects the CNS.Dr. Michael Kjaer on tendinopathy http://www.nature.com/nrrheum/journal/v6/n5/abs/nrrheum.2010.43.htmlDr. Geoffrey Bove and his team’s research on repetitive stress injuries response to manual therapy, and post-operative manual therapy as a preventative approach to scar tissue: http://www.researchgate.net/profile/Geoffrey_Bove/publicationsJaap van der Wal’s talk on the philisophical considerations of fascia was beyond maximum capacity the room could hold.
