"I have been seeing Simon Voysey for treatments for the past 2 years. Simon’s sessions are incredibly important to my weekly routine as they allow me to reconnect to my body and clear any tension or stiffness that has developed during my busy and demanding work week."
Fascia release is a form of body work that prepares the body for deep tissue remedial massage and also offers the awareness of how much tension and tightness is held in the fascia and how gently and simply it can be released.
Fascia is the wrapping around muscle that in a released state is like glad wrap but when subject to stress or force can quickly change to become like baking paper. This brings the feeling of constriction in the way we move and over time these movement patterns become ingrained.
How we move and use the body can become so familiar to us we may not realise our movements are confined or how the tension is contributing to muscular and soft tissue imbalances and pain. Through Fascia release combined with remedial massage, these ingrained movement patterns can be cleared leaving the recipient feeling lighter throughout the body and more fluid and agile in everyday movement. This also greatly supports healing from chronic injury which has not been able to heal due to fascial hardness and the resulting muscle misalignment.
Fascia release can be performed over clothing, or towels or over the skin during massage.
