Other approaches attempt to release fascia are linear protocols that are rough, mechanical, painful and only provide temporary relief. Confusing therapeutic protocols with reality has caused many people to erroneously view humans as two dimensional, linear objects. The map or protocol is not the territory!
Our bodies are over 70% fluid. The fascia is the container of and transport medium of the fluid in our body. The fluidity of the fascial system is also the transport medium for the vibrations of sound and light to flow for cellular communication. Trauma, surgery, thwarted inflammatory responses and unresolved emotional trauma tend to dehydrate the fluidity of the fascial system blocking the important transmission of light/sound for proper physiological function.
My Myofascial Release approach is a gentle, sustained three dimensional pressure into myofascial restrictions that provides lasting results.
