Fascia, Symmetry and Posture

Back view:

  • Blue vertical line from middle of feet.
  • Red vertical line from each heel.
  • Green Dots are landmarks.
  • Green lines show alignment of landmarks.

While this gal looks "fluffier" in the most recent picture, notice the improvement in symmetry and posture. The center of her feet aligns much closer to the center of her pelvis, spine, neck and head. In the first picture, notice how far her traps are drawn up her neck, in the first picture.

The Process

I normally fascia blast at least once, usually by Amanda, or twice a week and in the winter, up to 6 days a week.  At home, I heat my small bathroom to 95 degrees and soak in hot water (~110), with Epsom salts, for at least 20 minutes, before I get out and blast.

I started out as a 5 or 6 on the "Fascia Freak Out" chart.  My lower and upper legs were one solid chunk and I had permanent cramps in my calves.  I never had muscle definition, even in my teens when I was skinny.  I had to special order knee high Hunt boots, when I started riding, because my calves were so big.  My lower legs had fluid trapped by the tight fascia and the fascia had pulled the muscle up against my shin bones and it was adhered tight, so I had permanent shin splints.  Fluid/pitting edema would build up in my lower legs, above my socks from sitting and standing.

While I am still a work in progress, I now have tiny ankles, my shin splints are gone, my lower legs rarely swell, no more painful cramps in my calves and I have muscle definition!

I have only mentioned my legs.  I could go on and on about what Fascia Blasting has done for my hips, back, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, pain, posture, edema, etc.
