fascial based movement & manual therapy
WHY THIS WORKS SO WELL
We need flow of fluids in our bodies, but we are prone to developing areas that become blocked from proper glide & hydration. Gravity’s compressive forces will shrink the space between our joints, their ability to hold water, and the ability of our inner webbing to hold our organs, vessels & nerves in their best positions.
Injury, overuse, compensations, high pressure/stress, lack of hydration/nutrition & so on will cause our bodies to lay down simple, randomly aligned connective, fibrotic tissue. This will compress nerves, veins, lymph, and impede flow of fresh hydration and nutrient, causing joint/back pain, headaches, stress, and many other ailments.. To say that we do not function as we should when we have these blockages is a huge understatement.
Regardless for how the dysfunction occurs, our bodies are intelligent and amenable to change, especially with proper guidance from a credentialed Instructor & Therapist
ELDOA- a system of movement and postures that improve the spacing and therefore hydration of your joints
MYOFASCIAL STRETCHING & GLOBAL POSTURAL STRETCHING - from Guy VOYER DO’s Soma program, this system of stretching effectively gives mobility to a specific muscle’s intrinsic fascia (MFS) or a more global, extrinsic fascia
MYOFASCIAL RELEASE- hands-on therapy that gives you a different sense of what is going on in your tissues, feels very supportive to your emotional system while manually creating better fascial glide as well as turning down excessive muscle spindle/nerve activity
PILATES METHOD- elongation exercises that build general core strength, tone, & create higher degree of flexibility
LOW PRESSURE FITNESS (Hypopressive)- getting that deepest, innermost layer to lift back to optimal position through the breath in different postures (Visceral maneuver created by learning the breath technique, great for post-partum, pelvic floor issues, and creating more abdominal definition, and reestablishing your connection to your bodies inner-most layers of support)
