What does the medical term “fascia” mean:

Fascia is a fibrous connective tissue that is present throughout the entire body, not just the muscles. There are three main types of fascia: Superficial Fascia, which is mostly associated with the skin; Deep Fascia, which is mostly associated with the muscles, bones, nerves and blood vessels; and Visceral (or Subserous) Fascia, which is mostly associated with the internal organs.

What is Fascia and what does it do;

A fascia is a band or sheet of connective tissue, primarily collagen, beneath the skin that attaches, stabilizes, encloses, and separates muscles and other internal organs.
