Fascia is connective tissue that surrounds the organs, muscles & structures of the body. Restrictions from fascia occur naturally due to overuse, structural imbalance, lack of movement and trauma (physical, mental, emotional). Fascia can bind, creating a cocoon, similar to the way we wrap gauze around an external wound. It is our body’s natural bandaid. This restriction potentially inflicts pressure on the structure and surrounding area causing referred pain, nerve impingement and misalignment. Palm pressure, stretching and heat application are among a variety of techniques used to decrease and eliminate fascial adhesions. Stress reduction is a profound and nurturing effect of healing touch. Similar to the way toxins are released from our physical body, toxins are also released from our mental and emotional being. In an atmosphere of serenity and non-judgement we exercise our ability to surrender into a deep state of relaxation, meditation and affirmation. Minimizing the dichotomy of body and mind supports the holistic effect of bodywork.
Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
Whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life,
Keep peace in your soul.
