I practice Myofascial Release and CranioSacral Therapies. Fascia is the tough connective tissue surrounding every cell of the body from head to toe like a three-dimensional spider web. Injury, trauma, inflammation and poor posture cause the fascial system to tighten, putting pressure on nerves, muscles, blood vessels, bones, organs and the brain. This can result in a wide variety of symptoms including pain, restriction of motion, and structural misalignment, impairing both daily functioning and athletic performance. Myofascial Release is often considered the missing link for problematic cases of pain and dysfunction.
I have also co-authored a book entitled Myofascial Stretching: A Guide to Self-Treatment. Myofascial Stretching results in permanent lengthening of the body’s connective tissue and can dramatically improve health and quality of life. This book was written for both the lay person who has chronic pain, muscular tightness and/or postural dysfunction and for clinicians to give their patients for home exercise programs. It will benefit anyone with pain or tightness. It can also eliminate many of those aches and pains that you were told are part of the ‘normal’ aging process and you just need to live with it. Maybe you don’t!
