Our belief is in a unified body. A problem in one area is often caused by dysfunction in another area of the body. The connective tissue (fascia) that runs throughout the entire body becomes restricted and inflamed through minor injuries and the stresses of everyday life. These restrictions, result in postural changes that reduce movement in the short term, creating functional issues and can cause chronic pain over time. Thus, through a treatment called myofascial release, we release the ‘knots’ and break apart the adhered tissue that can cause these major problems and allow for greater movement and a dramatic decrease in chronic pain.
Should you be interested in further information regarding this treatment, this link has a great description of the concept of tensegrity, the link between physical tension and integrity.
