Happy New Year Moment of Truth Family! 

As we kick off this new year, we’re going back to basics. We talk a lot about myofascial release as our main therapeutic technique, but thought we’d go a bit deeper (see what I did there?) to chat more about our connective tissue and all that is possible when we sink in. Take a peek at this video – it’s a very brief intro but I wanted to give you a visual of this extraordinary web that is everywhere in your body.

Living Fascia: https://youtu.be/0TwdOKjEUtM?si=Gklet-B0obl9DJqK

This web of fascia literally runs continuously throughout our bodies. Not only is there fluid within the little tubules but also contained in our cells and around our cells. When we have tissue trauma, surgery, bruising, muscle tears, etc. . that fluid can get gunky and begin to thicken and create more adhesions and patterns of tension. 

Emotional trauma can also contribute to holding patterns. Most of us have heard of fight, flight, freeze and fawn responses of the nervous system. 

Fascial work can contribute to thawing of the freeze response as well as integration of some of the fragmented pieces from when we freeze to survive or when the nervous system gets stuck in fight/flight patterns.

This is a very surface level introduction. Just take a few moments to look at the images below, breathe into your belly slowly and deeply and let the awareness of this magical crystalline structure inside. Stay tuned as we share more about the fascial system and your health throughout the month!

We’d love to hear your thoughts on this and your experiences with myofascial release. Hit reply of give us a call at 623-226-4002!

Many Blessings,
