The skin is attached to this fascia so as not to slide right off our fingers and toes  -I’m sure there’s a more scientific way to explain this but stay with me. 

When fascia gets dehydrated, under or over stretched it gets weak. The role of the arch in the foot is to spread when load is applied (when we step onto the foot) and then lift. This transfers energy to muscles, ligaments, tendons and fascia. When the foot is unable to do this -perhaps because of the stylish pointy shoes you mi...
