Body + Block=Balance
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.
What is Fascia?
Fascia is the tissue connecting every single one of our 100 trillion cells.
The Three Components of Block Therapy
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.
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.
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.
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.
I am an accomplished wife, mother, survivor, and entrepreneur. I have a natural curiosity and a love for learning. Being diagnosed with cancer opened my eyes and forced me to take a serious look at my lifestyle. I knew that I had to make changes not only for myself, but for my family.
Tired of the “status quo”, I started looking for alternative solutions. I researched articles from well-known experts, authors and scientists and found that they all had a common denominator: NUTRITION & FITNESS. Eating whole foods and supplementation to promote better health and the importance of finding the balance through daily exercise.
I soon realized by creating a new way of living: eating well, living with passion, exercising for pleasure, I Began to understand the true value of self-care. Deanna Hansen has opened my eyes to a new version of exercise, therapy and mediation all rolled into one, through the use of Fluid Isometrics. The next generation in body care.
I don’t know who wrote this quote but it has become my inspirational phrase.
Life is meant to be lived and enjoyed. There are so many pleasures to be experienced; it’s not about eliminating everything we love. It’s about finding that healthy balance and doing what’s right, what feels good and what makes us healthier.
