A NEW APPROACH TO BODYWORK AND PAIN WHICH INCLUDES

Structural bodywork

Structural bodywork to increase and restore mobility, tissue hydration and neurological balance and to aid in the healing and restoration of injuries and pain

Body Mind connection

The possibility for trauma healing effects, by working with the felt sense of the body and activating the body’s natural ability to self regulate and release emotional and psychological traumas through movement and breath

Myofascial unwinding

Myofascial unwinding, actively utilizing movement and breathwork during sessions to release and integrate.

WHAT IS MER?

Myofascial Energetic Release (MER) is a form of deep tissue bodywork which targets the Fascia System of the body and combines slow and deep manipulation of tissues with breathwork, focused micromovements, joint release and neurological relaxation techniques. Unlike traditional wellness massage MER is not a treatment where the recipient remains passive and receiving. It is a bodywork technique which invites the recipient to actively participate and engages the body´s own systems of regulation and healing through guided breathwork, movement and somatic focus.  The method has the capacity for alleviating chronic physical pain and increasing mobility, somatic awareness, and the mind-body connection, while also gently addressing somatic expressions of emotional and mental pain. MER is based on a deep respect for the inner reasons of the body and mind, and has an emphasis on empowerment, support, and exploration. A special emphasis is placed on the Mindful presence of the practitioner.

WHAT IS FASCIA?

The Fascia system is the construct which connects and supports all the other systems in your body. It is a 3-dimentional continuum of soft, collagen-containing loose and dense connective tissue composed mainly of fibres and a gel-like fluid called ground substance. It is is found almost everywhere in the body and its texture depends on its function and on the location of the tissue.
Previously the Fascia system was seen mainly as an inert "packing material" for the muscles, the bones and the organs of the body. Today we know that this system plays a vital part in musculoskeletal dynamics or in movement as well as being a highly tuned sensory organ. There are about 10 times as many sensory receptors in our Fascia tissue as in our muscles  and every moment that you make is dependent on sensors in your Fascia feeding you brain the right information. (Want to know what happens if the brain does not receive this information?- read this article about Ian Waterman -the man who lost his body)
The Fascia system also plays a decisive role in cronic pain and pain syndroms.

FASCIA AND PAIN

A lot of ailments and movements deficiencies which were previously thought to be muscular are today known to rely upon the health of the Fascia system. Beyond that the Fascia system is highly changeable and adapts and remodels itself continuously. And one of the biggest influences to this remodeling processes is mechanical stimulation.
This means that we can alter our Fascia by how we move and also through physical manipulation like massage and bodywork.
And because of its close-nit relationship with the nervous system the quality of the touch we use when working with these tissues is of vital importance.
