Have you ever had a client with a thick, tight piriformis?  Maybe you used your forearms, elbows, thumbs, and worked like crazy to get the tone to come down.  But, when you went back to piriformis, it was hypertonic again.  Has this ever happened to you?  One of the main reasons piriformis gets, and remains, tight is that the second through fourth sacral vertebrae are compressed.  This compresses the fibers of piriformis' origin, and creates hypertonicity in the muscle.  Unlocking the sacrum can be done quickly and easily.  I have a client that I have been seeing for almost 20 years.  When he first came to me, he was convinced that a girl like me would never have enough pressure for him.  He had fairly severe piriformis syndrome or psuedo-sciatica and had been getting massage for several years with limited results.  Needless to say, my pressure was fine, but it was the Spontaneous Muscle Release Technique or SMRT that really took our first session over the top.  I unlocked his sacrum, released both piriformis muscles, as well as the rest of the hip tissue in both hips and bilateral hamstrings.  One session, that is all it took with SMRT to get rid of his piriformis syndrome, and I had a client for life.  He came back every week and had me do the same massage for six months, just to be sure it would stay gone.  It came back - 15 years later after his second hip replacement.  It took us one session to fully release piriformis and it was gone again.  Work SMaRTer on piriformis!  Get better results for the client in a way that is easier on your body.  Join us in Winter Park, FL to learn this and much more.  10% discount ends Tuesday, March 4th.  http://efullcircle.com/class-schedule/

Hi Everyone! This is a link to our newest newsletter article - http://efullcircle.com/case-study-beths-knee/

Comment by Dawn Lewis on February 26, 2014 at 6:54am
I read an article recently from a link posted on facebook about plantar fasciitis. The author of the article said plantar fasciitis is largely misunderstood. First, it was thought to be a shortening of the plantar fascia, then inflammation where the plantar fascia attaches at the medial process of the calcaneal tuberosity, but lately the thinking is that the symptoms may not be in the plantar fascia at all. When the bones of the foot become compressed, whether this happens because of types of shoes worn, surgeries, and/or compensation patterns, there is damage done to the connective tissue attaching to and surrounding those bones. Compression of the tarsal bones leads to shortening of this connective tissue, and because the bones do not move fully while walking, a chafing of the connective tissue with each step. I have several clients with this issue, and with most a combination of deep tissue and SMRT works fairly well for maintenance, but for one client this only increases the inflammation. Knowing that SMRT would not increase inflammation, this week I dropped the deep tissue and combined the SMRT with myofascial unwinding. After the session, she had no pain for the first time in months.

The muscle tissue in the neck can be extremely tender and hypertonic. One of the main reasons for this is immobility or misalignment of the cervical vertebrae. Releasing the cervical ligaments unlocks the vertebrae, allowing more movement and a natural realignment of the vertebrae. When the vertebrae are mobile and moving back into their natural space, the muscle tissue is far less tender and hypertonicity is lessened automatically and instantly. For example, the scalene muscles attach to each of the cervical transverse processes from C2 through C7. Working with the muscle without addressing vertebral immobility and misalignment can cause quite a bit of pain. That pain is significantly reduced by working with the vertebral ligaments first. To see how this is done, check out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZyVHjYJ8gcc Get more SMRT releases for the cervical ligaments and the muscles of the neck at http://efullcircle.com/spontaneous-muscle-release-technique-head-ne...
