What is Fascia?
Fascia is the tissue connecting every single one of our 100 trillion cells.
What is Block Therapy?
Block Therapy is designed to melt through restrictions in fascia tissue caused from aging, injury and surgery. The student lies over a therapeutic tool called the Block Buddy. The combination of body weight, gravity and diaphragmatic breathing creates a heating effect that melts through restrictions, improving blood and oxygen flow to cells.
The Three Components of Block Therapy
Create Space - Creating space in the body and melting through restrictions in the tissue is important for correcting posture and improving blood and oxygen flow to the cells, keeping them fed and clean.
Inflate Space - Instruction of proper diaphragmatic breathing turns on the internal furnace optimizing the melting of adhesions in the tissue. In fact, diaphragmatic breathing increases oxygenation in tissue up to 6x.
Maintain Space - Understanding how to use your body properly and strengthen correct foundation is crucial to maintaining proper cellular alignment. Block Therapy addresses this to give you a full body program and teaches you how to bring proper posture into daily activity.
About me: I am Aniko Farkas a Hungarian born Canadian who has been serving clients in the holistic wellness industry in varied modalities for now 20 years under my brand BodyBeautyMind. I work on both the business side of my field, and also on the service side of the business providing a vast range of offerings from beauty, skincare, food, massage and Esthetics. These experiences give me a good viewpoint and recognition into what I enjoy to do, and also into what the public benefits from in my experience in my work with them.
Timing is everything: I had been looking for a modality for some time now that I could integrate into my practice; Ideally one that can be shared in a group/ class setting. One that most people can participate in, regardless of where they are in their fitness level. I hoped for something deeply healing people would want and be able to also do on their own to maintain great health.
Why Block Therapy? When I experienced the block class, I was drawn to the combined elements in the class which bring knowledge and awareness into deep breathing, body -mind connection. I was blown away by the results where I felt stress and pain relief in my entire being.
I was impressed by the information which was downloaded to me in class, and was moved by the understanding of the incredible system of fascia that the modality offers.
I was in particular resonating with the dialogue through the class acknowledging the emotional body, a subject dear to me, which I always try to discuss with my clients. Last but not least the actual physical benefits that were transforming my body and how I shifted immediately into having visibly more mobility, flexibility and much more. Not to mention those in my class also had incredible results I was seeing in front of my eyes.
I saw myself becoming an instructor and sharing my existing base of knowledge and combining the fascia release techniques and programs that Block therapy as a modality offers. I got excited and essentially, dove right in!
The block as a healing tool: I also have always appreciated and showcased a variety of carefully selected all natural industry tools for better health in my work. The block itself really resonated with me when I held it and began to work with it. The fact that there is this perfect natural object for me to share with people, and to also use in my own healing time was an incredible addition to the class information itself, and I am so happy to be a part of helping people find it for their benefits, along with the other tools I choose to represent. It’s truly a wonderful object sourced from nature with integrity.
My journey: I am currently on my way to become a certified block therapy instructor, and I am going to be building a group class and private teaching practice in person between Toronto And the Niagara regions in Ontario Canada, where I already travel as a mobile holistic spa and massage professional. In addition, I am excited to connect with people who are home-bound for whatever reason and would like to have me guide them through personal care regiments online.
Block therapy is truly THE new class modality for me, and I think it will be a positive “game changer “so to speak for many who experience it and incorporate it in their lives, as well. I am proud to represent this practice method and I am enjoying benefiting from its immense healing benefits.
Meet Deanna, the Founder
Founder of Block Therapy
Founder of Fluid Isometrics
Certified Athletic Therapist
Deanna Hansen is a Certified Athletic Therapist and founder of Fluid Isometrics™ and Block Therapy™, a bodywork practice that is meditation, exercise and therapy all in one. Deanna began her practice as an Athletic Therapist in 1995, always focusing on deep tissue work. She built up a thriving practice, as her strong hands could work out the deep knots in tissue.
In 2000, Deanna experienced a major breakthrough. Her large, heavy body stored much pain and she felt weighed down and depressed. While experiencing the worst of a series of anxiety attacks, Deanna intuitively pushed her hand into her abdomen and, at that moment, began a path of self-discovery. In a short period of time, Deanna’s body began to change. The weight was dropping, the chronic pain and issues were improving and, most importantly, the depression and anxiety disappeared. She immediately began applying this to her existing patients and the results were immediate and outstanding.
For 14 more years, Deanna owned clinics where she practiced her new technique. In 2006, as word was spreading of the benefits of Fluid Isometrics™, she began teaching other therapists. It took time to create a language to transfer her wisdom she developed through her hands. This continues to be an ongoing and evolving challenge as the connective tissue called fascia remains a mystery to many people. Deanna considers herself blessed working with countless individuals, who have had remarkable improvements healing current and past injuries and overcoming pain, stress and anxiety. It’s been a combination of transforming her own body, her life and working with others that gives Deanna such a rich understanding of the fascia.
Deanna’s journey working with individuals has been very rewarding. Yet her true passion is to teach people how to self-care. Developed from personal practice and exploration, Deanna knows that teaching individuals to self-care is of far greater benefit than giving people a treatment. Fluid Isometrics™ Block Therapy™ is the solution. Deanna has taken what she did in the treatment room and translated it into a self-help practice using a handcrafted cedar wooden block, called the Block Buddy™. This simple, efficient, and inexpensive approach is gaining credibility as people around the world are experiencing the benefits of the Block Buddy™ and sharing with others.
