Our mission is to provide instruction and explore practical solutions which massage therapists may use to more effectively address soft tissue injury and trauma for the benefit of their clients.
Sound Easy? Well, it is and it is not.....there is a HOW to the HOW. Sorry, that is just how it is.
Fascia Research and the efforts of individual practitioners and clients over recent years are providing a "more efficient" framework for fascia treatment.
For example, let's consider WATER above. A person can drink water until they are practically floating....and the water still not be getting into/within the fascia to rehydrate it. They just run back and forth to the restroom a lot. Kind of like throwing a boulder into a swimming pool.....the outsides of the boulder get wet. But what about all the particles stuck together tightly INSIDE the boulder? That is where the stretching and massage (especially a therapist schooled and studied in fascia work) come into play. These other aspects of treatment, DONE IN THE RIGHT WAY, facilitate the hydration into and throughout the fascia tissues and may create not only long-term relief, but client-manageable relief, and even tissue regeneration. The best words I hear in my office or from practitioners who relay what is said in their own offices: "I thought I would never be able to _______ again, and I am able now, and when I move I am pain free, or nearly pain free."
Done in a less fascially efficient way.....therapy still yields relief, but often short-term. Thankfully, more and more therapists and healthcare practitioners are keeping up with research, doing research, and improving their Fascia Skills. The fascia demands a different style of treatment technique, similar but DIFFERENT, for lasting rehabilitation. And practitioners and patients are seeing the awesome results.
