Improve Performance & Your Health
Your breath is the baseline for all physical movement. While the respiratory muscles’ primary purpose is to facilitate breathing, their secondary duty is to assist your posture and movement. These dual roles are in constant flux as you go about your day. Perhaps you are an athlete, or have asthma or COPD, or perhaps you are stressed or anxious. In each of these cases you might feel that your breath capacity could be improved for performance, or for living more comfortably day-to-day.
Breathing is something we do 20,000 times a day, but we often don't really pay attention to it. Restricted breathing patterns can create issues in sports perfomance and endurance, but also in terms of feeling at ease in our body. Using a combination of Myofascial Release (MFR) and self-myofasical release, you will change restrictred breath patterns. Whether you have asthama, COPD, lung tissue damage or stress and anxiety you will learn how improve your muscle strength so you can use the oxygen you breathe more efficiently. This will help you cope better with feeling out of breath.
Learn techniques to breath more efficiently, to release muscles, including the diapragm, that inhibit your breath.
Learn how relaxed and more efficient breathing creates ease in the body.
Working with me you will explore your breath mechanics and discover your unconscious breath preferences and let go of tension in your diaphragm. Learn techniques to breathe more efficiently, to release muscles, including the diaphragm, that inhibit your breath. Learn how to improve your muscle strength so you can breathe more efficiently; this will help you cope better with feeling out of breath.
You will also discover embodied explorations to create the conditions needed for profound relaxation, increased body awareness and stress-relief.
I see a wide range of clients that seek myofascial treatment after losing flexibility or
function following an injury, surgery or experience ongoing pain, in some cases that have been unresolved for some years. I treat clients with soft tissue pain patterns such as fibromyalgia, ME and Lyme disease. I also treat women’s health issues.
My clinics are based in Stonehouse and Stroud, Gloucestershire.
“ A scar is the tip of a fascial iceberg”
Scar tissue can occur as a result of physical trauma (either from surgery or similar injury). This density is often what creates a pull on the tissues deep under the skin, which can then in turn cause pain., and can often lead to compensations in other areas.
