Mckenna Anderson/ Aligning Touch Physical Therapy & Myofascial Release

I work with aligning the physical body through Myofascial release. Fascia is a connective tissue under the skin lining that spreads 3D throughout the body from head to toe. Trauma, poor posture, emotional instability or inflammation can bind down the fascia, creating pressure in muscle, organs and nerves.

The treatment consists of applying sustained pressure with a prolonged stretch into the fascial restrictions to realign the body. By aligning the fascia you can see results in eliminating pain, increased pain free mobility, metabolism, release of emotional trauma, improved mood and inner peace.

FAQs

Q How long are the treatments?

The treatments are from 55min to 1 hour.

Q What does a treatment feel and look like?

A Myofascial treatment is a manuel therapy creating a compression distractional stretch of the connective tissues. It is a combination of a light to medium deep prolonged hold and stretch of the tissue. It can feel similar to a light to medium soft tissue manipulation with a prolonged stretch. It is non-traumatic to the body and can never cause harm. It activates the parasympathetic nervous system which is our rest system and therefore putting you in a relaxed state.

Q Can this help with emotional stress or tension?

YES!!! The fascia holds energy and emotions. Energy that we have stored and trapped in the fascia creates energetic and emotional blockages. This treatment is great for discharging emotions held in the connective in a safe place. You can see improvements in clarity, mood swings, metabolism, calmness, balance etc.
