Last week I did an "Advanced Deep Tissue, strategies for the low back & pelvis" 18-hr workshop with Rofler & Joint Release pro Amaro Hoegrafer, who has 33+ yrs of experience in bodywork (certifications in Advanced Rolfing®, Rolf Movement, The Trager® Approach, the Dorn® Chiropractic Method, diploma in Naturopathy).
I added onto my previously-completed 82 hours of Deep Tissue & Joint Release education of how to release restrictions in fascia. Using only a small drop of lotion allows you to grip into the tissue without glide (unlike you would with oil over muscles). This type of work reaches very deep, but doesn't have to be painful. It is HIGHLY effective - postural chance can be seen immediately.
Cool Stuff that fascia!! Read more about “Rolfing Structural Integration” here:
"Named after its founder, Dr. Ida P. Rolf, Rolfing Structural Integration is a form of bodywork that reorganizes the connective tissues, called fascia, that permeate the entire body.
More than fifty years ago, Dr. Rolf recognized that the body is inherently a system of seamless networks of tissues rather than a collection of separate parts. These connective tissues surround, support and penetrate all of the muscles, bones, nerves and organs. Rolfing Structural Integration works on this web-like complex of connective tissues to release, realign and balance the whole body, thus potentially resolving discomfort, reducing compensations and alleviating pain. Rolfing SI aims to restore flexibility, revitalize your energy and leave you feeling more comfortable in your body.
Essentially, the Rolfing process enables the body to regain the natural integrity of its form, thus enhancing postural efficiency and your freedom of movement."
