This April, my campervan odyssey took me to Southern California. Meanwhile, Elisha and her partner Stefan had recently moved to Northern California. So I decided to make the trek up to the Bay Area to meet Elisha in the flesh.
Knowing that people would probably want to watch our conversation, Stefan kindly agreed to film everything. I’ve uploaded 6 short segments from our conversation, which you can watch below:
Segment 1: What is Fascia?
Segment 2: The New Science of Fascia
Segment 3: Cellular Hydration and Fascia
Segment 4: Fascia and Internal Power (Neijin)
Segment 5: Fascia and your Nervous System
Segment 6: The Takeaway
If you follow my teachings about qigong, then you’ll quickly see why I love and support Elisha’s work. I believe that her approach is a wonderful complement to Flowing Zen Qigong!
Many of you have already emailed me to tell me about relieving stubborn chronic pain, about improving flexibility, and about leveling-up your overall qigong practice — all from Elisha’s free videos!
Got a question for me? Go ahead and post it below in the comments section.Best regards, Sifu Anthony I’m Anthony Korahais, and I used qigong (pronounced "chee gung") to heal from clinical depression, low back pain, anxiety, and chronic fatigue. Today, I'm the director of Flowing Zen, an international organization with students in 48 counties. I've been teaching qigong since 2005, I've served on the board for the National Qigong Association, and I’ve helped thousands of people to use qigong for their own stubborn health challenges. If you're ready to get started with qigong, there's no better way than my best selling book, which comes with free videos and meditations. The sooner you read my book, the sooner you can start healing! Click here to see my book on Amazon.

Thank You, Sifu Anthony, for discovering Elisha!! Thank You, Elisha, for introducing me to the complexities of fascia and an inkling of the potentials for myofascial release!!
I don’t have any pain that’s a whopper (big gratitude there!!), but I keep watching for the silver bullet to “cure” my little kinks, cramps, cricks, and clunks … and/or bigger things for my loved ones nursing things like a broken wrist, recovery from a stroke, senescence, …
I appreciate the way you both present qigong and/or stepping on people … so much to learn!!! Namaste

Thank you both for this. The videos were so interesting, and the connections between the two disciplines fascinating!

Thanks for this, I did some research after this fascia thing was mentioned and ive found out that yin yoga is for this. Il be adding yin yoga to my new routine once a week.
I read so far its deep deep stretching poses that are held for long and are aimed at the fascia and connective tissues as opposed to other yoga forms.
Very interesting and puzzling.. trying to find the knots on my body , I asked myself how do I distinguish between a knot in the fascia and a tight tendon?( on the leg, or arm..)

OMG thank you for this blog. This explains why I hit so much harder than I should be able to.
