Free Your Fascia!
Feeling stressed out? Block Therapy is your way out of stress and chronic pain!
For example, placing the block on strategic places on the shoulders and spine can melt through those “knots” which are really layers and layers of fascia gripping the bones in a spiral pattern, causing pulling and stress on the underlying muscles.
As it is my first blog post, I think it is important to take a moment here to explain what fascia is and the role that it plays in the body.
Fascia is the connective tissue in the body. It is a system that forms a kind of net and is continuous, like the skin. Fascia is flexible yet sturdy and it surrounds every muscle, bone, organ, and nerve in the body.
The function of fascia is to keep us connected and mobile. When we fall into a repetitive pattern of movement, such
as leaning to one side or favoring one leg over the other (we all do this), the fascia compensates so we don’t fall over. It does this by gripping and winding around the muscles and bones with a force of 2000 pounds per square inch!
Over time, this binding force seals us out of alignment and adds layer after layer of gripping strength to one side while pulling and stretching the muscles and tissue on the other. This creates chaos in the body and
affects everything from breathing to digestion. When the fascia grips and binds us into a twist, all of the organs are displaced and the joints and bones do not work in harmony as they are meant to do. The results of this can be seen in everything from constipation to migraine headaches to arthritis.
Block Therapy is a system designed to melt through those layers of adhesions that seal us out of alignment. Melting through the layers of fascia allow blood and oxygen to flow freely to the affected body part and allow the cells to migrate back to their proper positions.
When we don’t pay attention to our posture and alignment, we fall forward in a spiral rotational fashion. This causes the fascia to accumulate and grip to the area that is being twisted in order to keep us upright.
Over time, repeated postural defects lead to an accumulation of the fascia in the area under stress and seal us permanently out of alignment. Living and breathing bound and twisted is painful and causes great stress on the bones, muscles, joints, and ligaments.
Getting on the block and breathing properly heats the layers of fascia so they can melt and those cells can migrate back to their proper places in the body. It takes time and practice to make a permanent change, but the relief is immediate.
