What a fantastic way to take a holiday! I recently travelled to Bucerias in Mexico to take Natale Rao’s Myofascial Release Workshop. From Latin origins myo means muscle, and fascia means covering or band. I spent a week with a small group of RMT’s learning and practicing hands on techniques to facilitate glide between muscular fascia. Basically adhesions can form in between layers of muscles and cause dysfunction and pain, such as IT band syndrome or plantar fascitis. We went over specific techniques for common injuries, all without massage oil or super deep pressure. It was an interesting perspective and I can now incorporate the things we learned into my massage treatments for clients with headaches, low back pain, rotator cuff issues, pelvic/hip misalignment etc. Another bonus of spending a holiday for continuing education was a week of receiving massages!
