Fascia – our internal connective tissue, is sticky, and one of it’s many functions is to help stabilize the body when there is an imbalance, by binding together to form a stronger structure. Fascia, however, doesn’t only stick to itself, but it can bind to our organs -such as our digestive tract, muscle fibers, and bind muscle group to muscle group (for example binding your glutes to your hamstrings and thereby restricting movement, function, and power of both muscle groups). However, if the fascia stays bound then the body can’t return to its functional alignment and performance. Think of a cast on a broken limb. The cast serves a purpose, but prolonged use of the cast also causes muscle atrophy, reduced circulation and nerve innervation, and reduced range of motion and flexibility. Because of this, other muscles and joints begin to take on the work of the bound and limited area.
Fascia Restoration Therapy not only releases these adhesions, but also improves circulation bringing oxygen and nutrients to our skin, hair, organs, brain, muscles, and bones and helps our body eliminate toxins from our cells.
This is why Posture Alignment Therapy and Fascial Restoration Therapy are such a great combination. By keeping your fascia healthy through Fascia Restoration Therapy and your body in alignment with easy Posture Alignment exercises you can increase circulation, reduce inflammation and toxic buildup, improve muscle tone, strength and function, improve joint mobility and function, get better results from your workouts, improve your athletic performance, and support your recovery process, be free of headaches and migraines, sinus issues, neck pain, frozen shoulder, bursitis, bulging discs, back pain, sciatica, IT band pain, knee pain, plantar fasciitis, bunions (and more!), and get rid of cellulite (which is simply subcutaneous fat being pushed through a layer of bound up fascia).
