Muscle knots what exactly are they?

10th July 2017
Many people don’t realise that even the smallest of scars can generate muscle and joint dysfunction, affecting fluidity of movement and stability and hence cause repetitive strain patterns due to incorrect loading of surrounding issues. The effect of scars isn't always obvious and with people suffering from seemingly unrelated symptoms and conditions.

Myofascial Release techniques can be used to reduce the effects and appearance of scar tissue (including the sometimes downward pull of C-section scars).

Read this article if you would like to know more about the effects of scarring on our 3D spider web like fascial network, which holds us internally altogether, and how Myofascial Release treats adhesions and restrictions of our body wide fascial network.  It is written by my Tutor and Founder of MFR UK, Ruth Duncan, Myofascial release for Scar Tissue

Squats, effective and efficient strength and conditioning exercise

Thought for the day - "Balanced posture must turn into a habit".

Muscle tone is muscle contraction/tension that we are not consciously aware of. Without muscle tone, our bodies would fall in a heap. Ultimately my goal with postural correction is firstly awareness and then to increase muscle tone in the muscles needed to maintain that correction and decrease muscle tone in muscles that oppose it. So we develop a balanced posture that we don't have to continually think about to maintain.
