Some say the clothes make the man..
I say the man is his coat…
We’re all wearing multiple layers, even totally naked!
Superficial Fascia, Deep Fascia and that’s only the physical layers..
If you’ve ever come in from a long day, changed out of some sweaty work clothes into something soft, clean and comfortable; and you could remember that feeling and understand what I’m about to say.
We can do the same thing with our birthday suit, our Fascia. Right now we may be sweaty and cramped inside of our very own frame.
We might feel pain, restriction or anxiety but the way out is in.
Into the body with a Sphere, Cylinder or some type of bodywork. Having work done on our Fascia can have us in some brand new clothes and feeling fresh as you did that day.
The idea is to get the wrinkles out and restore a proper fit.
To be fair, this is a strange set of clothing indeed. Fit exactly to our dimensions and adapting shape according to the tensions we experience. It’s the most futuristic design we’ve seen so far.. Waterproof, electrically conductive and much more..
In some instances though, it can become a cast, restricting our movement around calcium deposits, limiting the free flow of water and electricity.
If we’re going to make it fit right again, we’ll need a solid gameplan. We’ll have to engage the cage.
Understanding how Fascia is malleable to tensions allows us to strategize Myofascial Release Points and Integration Exercises which can redistribute tensions in new, more efficient ways.
Plastic deformation is the way Fascia will not return to the original position when stretched slowly for prolonged periods. Using those spheres or cylinders we can begin to guide it into a more favorable position over time because of this property.
The dysfunction runs deep, to the periosteum of the bones but using multiple strategies we can begin to course correct.
When being in the body itself, feels like we just changed into a fresh set of clothes, our quality of life will take a massive step up.
I’m happy we can move towards such a thing.
