Fascia refers to the connective tissue. It is the fascia that maintains structural organisation (posture) and functional movement patterns (gait) in the body.
Using direct contact similar to a deep-tissue massage, built-up constrictions within the fascia are released opening up new options of movement.
During injury, adhesions form between the tissue layers. Initially part of the body’s mechanism to protect and temporarily strengthen, in the long-term this leads to reduced mobility.
The effective combination of this deep tissue release with guided movement, produces lasting results from the inside out.
