Thursday, May 24, 6-8pm
Full Circle Health Network, 4 Cataraqui Street, Kingston, Ontario
Join us for this 2-hour workshop to learn how fascia can restrict our movement and how to work with the body to create strength, flexibility, freedom and space.
Fascia release is gentle, sustained pressure on the soft tissue (fascia) resulting in releasing & lengthening of the fascia.
WHAT IS FASCIA?
Healthy Fascia = Healthy Body & Mind
On the list of most important body parts, right next to the skeleton, comes a less known, but equally as important structure called, fascia. Fascia is comparable to the white “pith” of an orange. Like the white stringy material that holds the slices of an orange together, fascia connects everything in the body together. On a more scientific note, fascia is a connective tissue that supports organs, blood vessels and nerves, forming a flexible web for muscles and bones.
Fascia can be negatively impacted in several instances – physical or emotional trauma, scarring, or inflammation, and even every day stressful situations will cause fascia to become tight, causing stress on the rest of the body. Because of the interconnected nature of fascia, consistent poor posture or repetitive movement patterns can cause our body to hold more tension, and be less flexible, which can lead to anxiety and stress, and even injury.
Keeping fascia healthy keeps our mind and body healthy. During fascial release, pressure is applied to the connective tissue in numerous forms including block work, ball work, and rolling.
