Getting Under Our Own Skin: Fascia, Interoception, and Emotional Health


Interoception refers to the ability to pay attention to bodily sensation. Also known as our eighth sensory system, interoception is a valuable training ground for self-regulation. This inner sense can be developed through mindfulness of body sensation, breathing, and other nodes of focus. In addition,novel studies point to fascia as a substrate for interoception and therefore, emotional well-being.

This workshop explores emerging research that links fascia and interoception with inflammation, anxiety, depression, and PTSD, as well as therapeutic approaches to addressing them.

In this course, we’ll explore the research that links these elements together, including:

  • The relationship between fascia and interoception
  • How fascia and interoception relate to inflammation, depression, and chronic pain
  • Implications for depression, anxiety, PTSD, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Differences between interoceptive + proprioceptive awareness and training
  • The link between fascia and body agency
  • Tips on working with fascia through a trauma-informed lens

We will examine ways to use language and practical interventions that maximize interoception, emotional regulation, and body agency.
