Self-care fascial approaches for the treatment of pain and dysfunction

Myo means muscle and fascia means band however, the fascial system is far greater than the fascia supporting and separating muscle. Research has taught us that fascia is involved in force transmission, fluid dynamics, cellular detoxification and nutrition. Furthermore, fascial dysfunction can cause a myriad of seemingly unrelated symptoms producing pain and ill-health.

Numerous self-care tools are available to treat fascia. Having a greater understanding of fascial anatomy and physiology can enhance the effects of self-care treatment promoting stability and mobility.

After this workshop, you will be able to-

  • Enhance your fascial self-care treatments dispelling the myth of ‘no pain, no gain’.
  • Demonstrate how interception and proprioception enhances fascial self-care
  • Demonstrate how to create structural change using multi-dimensional fascial compression and elongation combined with subtle isometric contraction
  • Understand fascia’s elastic recoil potential to enhance stability and mobility
  • Demonstrate appropriate timing and pressure for the use of all self-care tools.
