For Therapists & Educators
Our bodies are organized by one continuous fascial web (rubber bands) with pockets of concentrated muscle cells (pull on the rubber bands), all organized around bones (sticks) that are suspended and balanced within the web of tension.
Whatever happens in one part of the body is adapted to by the whole body, distributing its strain globally. As soon as one thing is out of balance, everything is out of balance (bring two stick ends closer together and show how everything changes). If that happens for a short time it won’t be a problem. We can adapt. If it stays in the body for a long time, the fascial system will grow around the pattern, locking it in locally and globally. The body is now fascially designed for that pattern.
Releasing a chronic imbalance locally will be resisted by the globally grown-in pattern. In order to effectively bring balance locally, one must work to release the imbalance globally (point to the other areas of the model that are now imbalanced as well). Whatever is not released will remain as an anchor to the old pattern.
