Today on Holistic Dentistry I’m joined by my guest, Bonnie Crotzer, founder of the movement method and platform, The Floss, who educates people on the often overlooked source of health — our fascia network. Bon’s Fascia Flossing classes and private sessions resculpt the body’s foundational structure through a personalized combination of physical manipulation, guided resistance movement, and engaged muscle elongation techniques.
In this episode, we’re discussing how Bonnie’s background in dance, bodywork, yoga, pilates, and biomechanical flexibility and strength, inspired The Floss, built on remapping your network of fascia. Bonnie shares what fascia is, including its texture, shape, and connection to ancestry. She also illustrates how flossing fascia supports tissues in the body as an “internal exfoliation” of structural connective tissue. Then, we discuss the connection between teeth flossing and fascia flossing, as well as how the Eastern medicine meridian roadmap relates to fascia. Plus, Bonnie provides some solutions for body challenges like jaw tension, headaches, and tight hamstrings.
