Myofascial Release is a gentle yet powerful hands-on treatment that addresses tight connective tissue in the body. This connective tissue, or fascia, connects and embeds all muscles, bones, nerves, vessels, organs, and systems of the body, creating a three dimensional web. Healthy fascia provides both support and flexibility throughout the body.
Restrictions in the fascia can pull at more than 2,000 pounds per square inch and put pressure on
pain sensitive structures such as nerves and vessels. This can cause many symptoms including pain,
limited range of motion, fatigue, and poor function in many body systems. Adding
gentle yet sustained pressure into the fascia helps to release these restrictions
and, in turn, improve posture, reduce pain, increase range of motion, and
improve overall function.
CranioSacral Fascial Therapy is also a gentle form of hands-on therapy
that addresses the flow of a vital fluid in the body that nourishes cells and removes
toxins: cerebrospinal fluid. When fascia is pulling, the flow and function of the
cerebrospinal fluid is affected and can cause poor function. Releasing the fascia and allowing this fluid to flow in its natural rhythm can help to improve cognitive function, reduce pain, and improve overall health and well-being.
What makes my therapy approach unique? The combination of these two powerful techniques allows the body to heal on a very deep level. More importantly, I treat the whole body/mind complex rather than just individual parts or systems. My clients are active participants in their healing and I follow what their body needs in that moment and what it is ready to release rather than trying to force an 'agenda' or protocol. Children can change in an instant and only by meeting them where they are can true trust and healing occur.
