Similar to massage, Myofascial therapy is a very specialised area of soft tissue body work, that deals with the connective tissue known as fascia. There is a huge amount of research and literature which is now changing the way clinicians and anatomists look at the way the body moves and is connected. We are wonderful beings with a complex intertwining of all our systems. The skilled Myofascial therapist can read the body and determine systems which are in distress or need some attention. At Total Therapy we have access to highly skilled and experienced Myofascial therapists who you can have the utmost confidence in.
Fluid Body Flexible Mind : Fascia is ubiquitous in the body, it facilitates and inhibits movement.
Soft tissue continually pulls on our bones as we move, causing the joints to compress and expand naturally. Problems can occur when we move repetitively causing our bones to mould to our movements, slowly but surely we lose range of movement around the joints.
Our role as manual/movement specialist is to reverse this process and along the way getting people to move and think a little differently. This can not only restore lost movements patterns but also change the way we think about our bodies.
Each session will consist of:1.Body Scan
2.Myofascial bodywork covering the whole body
In conjunction with the Physio's at Total Therapy this approach provides a more integrative approach. Every action has a reaction.
