This is how I prepare for a full weekend of Barefoot Walken & Rollin!
Let the Fascial Games begin!
What are you doing today?
Are you taking care of that Fascia?
If you haven’t booked your appointment for August, too late! Now you need to plan ahead for September. And what happens in September? Schools back in session, parents can have some down time and Dawn has time for smoothing out your fascia.
But... just because Dawn doesn’t have any appointments left in August, doesn’t mean you can’t take advantage of our #back2school #special.
BUY 3 SAVE $50! Use any time!
2 more weeks to take advantage of the #back2school special!
Buy them now, use them anytime. 🙌🏽
THIS is what we are trying to share in our #FasciAshi classes. Work smarter. But also work harder: don't wuss out and phone in your #barefootmassages. Do the work.
DM #814: Lifted this from a great post by @soft_tissue_therapy. Check out his post for the full caption. While you’re at it, give him a follow. Really good stuff.
Your patient isn’t dead. They have a nervous system🧠 attached to those tissues you’re trying to smash to hell, and what it says goes.
Yes, deeper structures also need to be able to slide, but the nervous system is the bouncer 💪🏾 , and your elbow is not the equivalent of a crisp Benjamin 💴. You want access to those other tissues? Coax, don’t crush. And as Lenny would say, Expose don’t impose.
When we get the buy-in of the nervous system, that is when we can truly make a difference. And the best buy-in honestly comes when the patient is the one moving and making the calls. Think about it, when was the last time you were physically able to put enough force through someone’s tissues to tear their achilles tendon? (Hopefully you’re able to answer ‘never’ to this) But, patients are absolutely able to do it to themselves 🤔. We see those non-contact tears all the time.
You want to get a lot of force through tissues and get deeper layers to move? Have the patient move. Sure, hold areas down while they move to make it more “specific”. Either way, have them move. What’s that called? Oh, that’s right: science 🤓. Stay tuned because I’ve got some INCREDIBLY COOL stuff in the works to help you visualize what I’m talking about 🔬. Like…so cool 😎 . This is gonna be you: 🤯.
Ok. Enough from me. Stay tuned for more goodies. In the mean time, get moving. Your deep tissue will thank you.
