I’m attending Dr. Pollack’s Skeletal Muscle Molecular Mechanics Seminar this February! Check it out, it’s exciting! Skeletal Muscle Molecular Mechanics  


  10 Fun facts on the skeletal system: Did you know… 1) Bones consume nutrients. 2) The longest bone is the femur in the thigh. It makes up almost one quarter of the body’s total height! 3) Bones can rebuild themselves when broken. 4) The smallest bone is the stirrup deep in the ear.

Myofascial Release: Do you experience chronic pain?

What is Myofascial Release? According to the founder of Myofascial Release John F. Barnes (2009), “Myofascial Release is a very effective hands-on technique that provides sustained pressure into myofascial restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. The theory of Myofascial Release requires an understanding of the fascial system (or connective tissue).” Fascia is a thin connective tissue that covers all the organs of the body including the heart, lungs, brain, and spinal cord. This tissue covers every muscle and every fiber within each muscle, bone, nerve, artery, and vein. The... Read The Rest →
