From Foot to Glute (inc. lower back)
I specialise in lower limb pain and discomfort caused by everyday living, sports, activities, running and/or walking
Much research and scientific evidence has been discovered over the last few years regarding the importance and function of fascia.
Fascia is a thin casing of connective tissue that surrounds and holds every organ, blood vessel, bone, nerve fiber and muscle in place. The tissue does more than provide internal structure; fascia has nerves that make it almost as sensitive as skin. When stressed, it tightens up.
Although fascia looks like one sheet of tissue, it’s actually made up of multiple layers with liquid in between, therefore adequate hydration is essential.
It’s designed to stretch as you move. But there are certain things that cause fascia to thicken and become sticky.
When it dries up and tightens around muscles, it can limit mobility and cause painful knots to develop.
By releasing the fascia, discomfort can be alleviated. Perceived muscle tightness or joint stiffness can be improved by fascial release.
The plantar fascia in your feet connects your feet to your core, your pelvic floor, your glutes & lower back
Not all muscles are short and tight, some are long and tight. Trying to 'release' already lengthened muscles to alleviate pain is pointless they are being held in a long stretched position and won't release until their opposing shortened muscle is released. Then those lengthened muscles need strengthening to keep the muscle balance.
Need some relaxation? Need some 'me time'
If you don't have any 'pain' and would just like 30 minutes to chill
