        What to Expect?

        Myofascial release (or MFR) is designed to treat immobility and discomfort that accumulates in our connective tissue when it stiffens and loses its ability to flex with our movement.
        Fascia is a web of fibres that pervades our entire physical being so this stiffening of the tissue can felt in our muscles, organs and joints.

        In traditional chinese medicine (TCM) each season correlates to a particular set of organs. Meridians are associated with each of the organs so it makes sense to support our bodies in alignment with the corresponding season.

        In each seasonal workshop there will be a focus on specific trigger points located along the related meridian lines with yin postures to compliment.

        The associated meridian lines affected by the seasons are:

        In Winter: Kidney and Bladder

        In Spring: Gall Bladder and Liver

        In Summer: Heart, Triple Warmer and Small Intestines

        In Autumn: Lungs and Large Intestines.

        Chinese philosophy suggests two forces exist, yin and yang, or internal/external so it makes absolute sense to treat both. If we focus on each of the meridians within the seasons we are offering not only internal support but the external assistance to our body. MFR offers a holistic approach to spirit and body.


        At each event we will randomly pick a winner from the group to receive a set of myofascial release balls valued at $30!!

        MORE INFO



        Fascia is a thin casing of connective tissue that surrounds and holds every organ, blood vessel, bone, nerve fibre 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 called hyaluronan. 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.
