I have always admired the quality of content and visual beauty of the “Massage Magazine”. So I was pleased when they asked me to share my philosophy, theories and musings on my approach to Myofascial Release on this BLOG.
I was a good athlete competing in football, competitive karate and weight lifting. My injury, lifting over 300 pounds and resultant long-term pain led me to discover the theories and principles of my approach to Myofascial Release that is considerably different than other forms of massage or other seminars called Myofascial Release.
What is now being discovered is that all medical, dental and therapeutic education is based on obsolete information. I am not being critical for I was guilty of much of what I am about to say for much longer than most of you. However, the time has come in healthcare to be honest. We all need to step back and take a very serious and comprehensive look at what we were taught.
Max Plank, the father of quantum physics, has said that, “science progresses one death at a time.” What the vast majority of scientists have not done is to consider the metaparadigm that the traditional paradigm is based upon. A paradigm is a set of shared assumptions that states our perceived model of reality. Our decades of experience with Myofascial Release have shown the metaparadigm of traditional therapy is incomplete and terribly flawed. When the fundamental concept of the metaparadigm is erroneous, then all of the other concepts that emanate from this fundamental flaw, may be logical but incorrect. This then leads to techniques that only produce temporary results.
Those that have yet to experience Myofascial Release think that our whole focus is the fascial system. Nothing could be further from the truth!
I view the fascial system as a powerful handle to access the totality of the human being. As we release the fascial restrictions, we are also create a positive and profound effect upon the golgi tendon organs, the spindle cells of the muscular component, the vascular and lymphatic systems, the osseous structures, the brain and neural system, the neuropeptide system, the acupuncture meridians and the mind.
Our experience is that there is wisdom, emotions and memories in every cell of the body, which can be released in the most gentle, compassionate and effective way with Myofascial Release. I have had the opportunity of training over 50,000 therapists and physicians who are successfully using Myofascial Release with over 1 million clients per month. Myofascial Release is the “missing link” that will greatly enhance everything you do.
My intention is to share with you what my intuition, instincts and 48 years of experience treating people from all over the world has taught me.
-Are you tired of your body hurting?-Are you tired of being tired?-Do you want to achieve emotional and mental tranquility?-Are you frustrated with temporary results, no matter how hard you work?-Do you want to reach your full potential?
Please ask what you are curious about and I will do my best to express my perspective clearly to you.
