The Block Therapy system is the most effective self care technique to soften and release tissue to promote blood and oxygen flow to cells. With this system you will learn to:
Release fascial restriction throughout your entire body. This is what our Blocks are designed to do.
Instruction of proper diaphragmatic breathing turns on the internal furnace optimizing the melting of adhesions in the tissue. In fact, diaphragmatic breathing increases oxygenation in tissue up to 6x.
Understanding how to use your body properly and strengthen correct foundation is crucial to maintaining proper cellular alignment. Block Therapy addresses this to give you a full body program and teaches you how to bring proper posture into daily activity.
How is Block Therapy different than any other fascia modalities?
The key distinction lies in the method: persuasion versus force. With Block Therapy, we gently persuade your tissue to melt and release. Through the application of your body weight and gravity, combined with pressure on the Block and proper diaphragmatic breathing, the fascia naturally releases tension.
In contrast, other fascia methods often rely on forceful intentions. This can lead to the tearing of fascia, resulting in injury and ultimately the accumulation of scar tissue.
"But it's just a block..."
We understand this sentiment, and indeed, at its core, Block Therapy utilizes a simple bamboo block! However, it's not just any bamboo—it's your therapeutic tool.
Bamboo possesses a density akin to bone, allowing us to effectively melt and release fascial restrictions down to the bone level, where many underlying issues reside.
Unlike foam, plastic, or synthetic materials, which only address surface layers of tissue, our organic bamboo Blocks delve deeper, targeting the root causes of your discomfort.
Each Block is raw and organic, embodying the essence of nature itself.
What if I am unable to exercise?
Block Therapy doesn't demand any particular skill or significant energy expenditure. You remain in full control throughout your Block Therapy session. We provide clear instructions on how to use the Block safely, with one of our primary rules being 'your breath is your guide'. An exceptional aspect of Block Therapy is that it doesn't typically induce sweating—unless, of course, that's your intention.
Block Therapy seamlessly integrates therapy, exercise, and meditation into a single practice.
Is this an at home program?
Absolutely! With Block Therapy, you have the freedom to practice wherever and whenever you desire. No need for a gym, studio, or clinic attendance.
