You may find this funny, but its an honest question..
So from the reading I've done on fascia, as I understand it thickens when under pressure. I have this book called the Endless Web and it says thats how our bodies are formed after we are born; from the pressures and pulls of sitting, crawling, walking, etc. So tension produces thickening fascia. Makes sense.
It made me wonder about other things though.. like eyes. Lately I've been dismayed because I'm starting to get wrinkles around my eyes (I know, common story). Even more recently something has been irritating my eyes and I've discovered how lovely rubbing them can be
My eyes don't get a lot of rubbing - I wear contacts and make-up and have been very good about not touching my eyes for both of those reasons. But, now I wonder, because of the lack of movement and pressure around my eyes due to my not rubbing/touching them have I actually sped up the wrinkling process? And now, rubbing them, am I stimulating fascia growth and thickening - possibly strengthening the delicate skin around my eyes?
