In Ayurveda our approach is a bit different to the typical therapist approach. We:
- Work on marma points or pressure points directly affecting the fascia
- Massage or manipulate these points works holistically through Chakra points (central balls of energy)
- Work on marma points are and massage these points to help fascia dysfunctions
- Look at why every fascia complaint is different energetically- why sometimes heat is better and sometimes cold treatment
- Keep the fascia in the best of health through ayurvedic cleansing or panchkarma techniques (five ways to remove toxins)
- Muscle stretch – sometimes in one area of the body to affect other body areas
- Rebalance the body mind and spirit – through yoga and meditation exercises
The ayurvedic approach is to help immediately and also long term. There is more emphasis on prevention and cause rather than just focusing on short term fix.
In our one day Fascia Workshop you will learn the above as well as:
Learn Two pain relief techniques;
- The Bolus Technique. This uses the benefits of a linen bag of pain relieving herbs, oil and heat to help in pain relief.
