The fascia is connective tissue that traverses the whole body as straps and slings providing structural bracing to the soft tissues and proprioceptive feedback to the central nervous system. Interestingly, the fascial planes are near identical to the acupuncture meridians and have been the focus of most eastern treatment philosophies for thousands of years.
Strapping methods are very beneficial to the myofascial network when integrity has been lost and to allow the body to progress through phases of healing. Dry needling (acupuncture), sound assisted soft tissue manipulation (Gua Sha) and various other soft tissue release techniques are indicated wherever there has been adhesion due to inflammation and asymmetric tissue loading. Chiropractic and Osteopathic procedures aimed at re-aligning the body structure and providing functional improvements also have a profound effect on the fascial system. When combined with the knowledge of the myofascial straps and slings and aimed at normalising tissue tension beyond a regional focus and in cooperation with various soft tissue strategies, we believe objective outcomes are attained more often and quicker than with an isolated approach. It is with this philosophy in mind that we aim to provide solutions with diverse problem solving strategies.
