Unsticking fascia is really helping

I've been in pain for a long time, and lately, one of the things I'm doing that's really helping is getting bodywork (rather like Rolfing, but more refined) that is unsticking layers of fascia. What I found was that having a chiropractic session did almost nothing, and never lasted, because the stuck fascia just pulled me right back outta shape again, usually within seconds.

Hi, rolfing was popular in the 50s and seems to have declined since, you had to be brave to suffer it! So is what you are having, is ART or something like it?

Re: Unsticking fascia is really helping

wow. That's heavy duty. But I have found that regular, light therapeutic massage by someone who understands trigger points helps tremendously.

I had years of Rolfing, and it really helped a lot. What I'm doing now is something my bodyworker has developed, so it lacks an actual name. What she does is, very precisely, work in areas of my body, unsitcking the fascia, bit by bit. It's not fast, and it sure is freeing me up.

Re: Unsticking fascia is really helping

So how does she unstick the fascia and how would you know it was a fascia condition?

To unstick fascia requires two things: mechanically moving/stretching/flexing the area's muscles plus running eletromagnetic energy though the area. there are many modalities and ways i which to accomplish this.

How you'd know it was about fascia: find a bodyworker who is savvy and can tell what she is feeling beneath her hands, is one way. Another way is more anecdotal, as in my case. If chiro and other manipulation treatments never hold for more than a short time, it may well be stuck fascia that is making this happen.
