How do you stretch fascia?
Fascia stretching is not passive, it is active. Take what you know about traditional stretching and flip it upside down. In traditional stretching, the muscle is lengthened until a stretch is felt and then pushed "a little bit farther" in hopes to gain more flexibility. However, when this occurs and the muscle does not have the capacity to stretch more, the body goes into protection mode and lays microscopic scar tissue throughout the muscle which then decreases your flexibility! Fascia stretching is safer stretching. The muscles are never taken to the end range, therefore no risk of over-stretching. Fascia stretching is opposite of traditional stretching.
The basic fascia stretching equation:
Shorten the area you are stretching.
Add compression by activating or contracting the shortened muscle or area.
Move in the opposite direction.
And that is it! The fascia equation is applied to each body part throughout all the stretches and strength movements. We begin each session with a mindful presence to set the body's foundation and wake up the nervous system by grounding down through our feet. This allows the body to fully connect while moving through the fascia stretches, creating stability and security throughout the movements. Our bodies are a masterpiece of connected life through our cells, organs, nerves, blood vessels, veins, muscles, bones, and skin. Fascia is what holds it ALL together.
I want you to get the most out of each session. Have a journal handy to write down certain stretches that felt incredible in your body to build your fascia toolbox. Thank you for being here and starting this life changing journey with me!
Note: Please consult with your healthcare provider prior to starting a new exercise practice.
