Fascia is connective tissue, it’s role is that of integrating the fluid relationships between muscles, joints, organs and other structures in the body. Injury, inflammation, immobility… all these can lead to stagnation and dehydration of our connective tissue (fascia) which will often leads to imbalance and torsions. The body can respond with pain or tension potentially somewhere far away from the source of the issue.
Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective form of treatment that involves applying gentle sustained pressure to unleash a change. Restoring fluidity and motion to the dehydrated tissues leads to a sense of space, pain reduction and a fuller integration of the whole body.
Massage treatments last for 55min. Cost: £70

After studying myofascial release with JING in 2010 she immersed herself in the study of Visceral Manipulation with the Barral Institute. Ana’s passion for the inter-connected elastic quality of fascia, leads her to explore anatomy through human dissection. She has studied with Gil Headley and Julian Baker, as well as currently studying an MsC in Clinical Applied Anatomy.
