Consider an orange in relation to our fascia. The outer covering, or skin, is similar to our skin. Peel that layer and underneath you see the pith, a white covering that surrounds each segment. That pith is like our fascia. Just as it keeps each individual segment together and keeps the entire fruit whole all at once so does our fascia connect to each muscle group while keeping each part intact.
Continuing with the orange analogy, just say, we cause tension in one part of the pith by pinching it. That part will not only cause tension in the segment that it covers but it will also compromise other areas of the orange. So too with us. Injury, trauma, poor posture or impaired bio-mechanics may cause the fascial system to tighten, putting abnormal pressure on muscles, nerves, blood vessels, bones, organs and the brain. This can result in a variety of symptoms including pain, restriction of motion, and structural misalignment, impairing both daily functioning and athletic performance. Unless the fascia is released via Fascial Therapy, also known as Myofascial Therapy, the muscles, veins and lymph cannot regain normal or optimal functioning. This is by far, the most common reason why people are not able to obtain relief from most modalities.
The fascia is the covering that weaves in and around every muscle and tendon – a body suit that protects and connects.
Research into the importance of Fascia as a structure was presented at the first Fascia Congress, in 2007, continued in 2009 & 2011. Tom Myers of Anatomy Trains presented his documented dissections which supported the premise that the body is not segmented into individual structures, and that there is a casing known as fascia that holds everything together and surrounds these muscles, bones and nerves. This helps to coordinate movement, so if one part of the body moves, many other areas of your body move or are affected as well.
What Others Are Saying
“I saw Simone due to back pain. I had been partially managing the pain through daily stretching and A.R.T. I was also working on my golf game with a PGA professional and seeing a professional trainer. Following a number of sessions with Simone both my trainer and my golf pro commented on the increase in my mobility. Facial stretching has had longer lasting results than the other modalities I have tried. My pain has decreased and as a bonus my handicap is down six strokes!”
“The therapy that Simone Fortier shares with her clients is common sense and life altering. Recognition of sources of pain and how to cure these issues through fascia release is light years ahead of all deep tissue work that leaves you sore and bruised the next day. Simone is truly remarkable”
