What is Fascia? Fascia is a thin casing of connective tissue that surrounds and holds every organ, blood vessel, bone, nerve fiber and muscle in place. The tissue does more than provide internal structure; fascia has nerves that make it almost as sensitive as skin. In fact, according to Prevention Magazine, fascia has 10 times as many nerve endings as your muscles. So, that makes it your pain highway. Fascia is a specialized system of the body similar to a spider's web/sweater. Fascia is very densely woven, covering and interpenetrating every muscle, bone, nerve, artery and vein, as well as, all of our internal organs including the heart, lungs, brain and spinal cord. How Does Fascial Release Help? I use a number of osteopathic/massage techniques such as strain and counter strain, kneading the connective tissue, and regular massage. I will investigate with my fingers, to determine where you have fascia that has become wrinkled. Scar tissue and other injuries directly affect the fascia and how it behaves. What to Expect? I operate from a private in home studio in Georgetown. You will fill out some forms to determine history of injuries, etc. Then you will climb up onto the massage table and I will begin to work on you. The best way I can explain it is that much like when you buy a boneless, skinless chicken breast, it's not actually skinless. There is that fine silvery skin that covers the meat. It is the myofascia or the fascia that surrounds each muscle. We also have regular fascia, that basically holds everything together. Much your bed sheets are nice and smooth after you make the bed, prior to sleeping in them, they are wrinkled when you wake up. The same thing happens inside your body. Injuries, surgeries, trauma, etc. can make it a lot worse. I will smooth out your internal bed sheets, so to speak. Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create Myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures that do not show up in many of the standard tests (x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.) A high percentage of people suffering with pain and/or lack of motion may be having fascial problems, but are not diagnosed. What are the benefits to a Fascial Release Session?: Limber up tight legs Improve your range of motion Diminish pain Alleviate stress in the body Relax Increase blood flow Reiki can be incorporated.
