The fascia, that cloak of gossamer connective tissue that surrounds and supports everything in our bodies, functions like fiber optics. It conducts light to all points of our precious vessel. And when it doesn't. when light is stagnant or blocked, there is pain and trauma.
Today's special guest, Ronelle Wood, a leading specialist in Myofascial Release Therapy, knows the power of fascia from both sides; as a patient and as a healer.In her new book,Touching Light: How to Free Your Fiber-Optic Fascia, Wood chronicles her path to discovering the life-changing technique that has made her a highly successful, sought after practitioner in her Ojai, CA clinic.
In Touching Light, Wood looks deeply into the light conducting nature of fascia and what that means for people; how it impacts their emotional and physical wellbeing and how diminished light conduction can spur problems that someone might not even be aware of. She discusses how the process of Myofascial release differs from massage and how it can be combined with movement instruction to correct dysfunctional body mechanics.
