Fascia researchers, manual therapists, movement educators, and anatomy enthusiasts worldwide are studying FR:EIA's elegant embodiment of the dynamic fascial system in order to better understand its organization, f luidity, and strength, with clinical insights into how we touch and treat as therapists. FR:EIA is the realization of a dream shared by fascia researchers and educators worldwide. To finally have a whole- body representation of fascia's complex network from head to toe, skin to bone, will accelerate understanding and deepen comprehension for learners everywhere. Once obscured by limited access to the dissection lab, and limited available imagery, FR:EIA elegantly takes a monumental step forward, bringing fascia into the visible realms. We can finally see the "air." "It is no longer possible to be the same after this work; my view on fascia has totally changed me." —Johannes Freiberg, Sao Paulo, Brazil: Team FR:EIA dissector, pedagogic director of the Gente Centro de Desenvolvimento Humano Editor's note: FR:EIA (Fascia Revealed: Educating Interconnected Anatomy) is the world's first 3D human fascia plastinate. It was created at Dr. Gunther van Hagens' Plastinarium in Guben Germany, by his Body Worlds team in collaboration with the Fascia Research Society. Authors' note: As members of the FNPP dissection team, working with FR:EIA has been one of our greatest joys. This project allowed us to show many aspects of fascia in a way that is clear, educational, and profoundly beautiful. We are so grateful to the Fascia Research Society, the Plastinarium, and Body Worlds for their generous support of this project, as well as to our beautiful donor and her family. Notes 1.
