Discussions with the Fascia Masters – Diane Heisner
June 16 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am CDT
Being a Massage Therapist and Bodyworker for 16 years, the work takes a toll on your body. I was having chronic neck and shoulder pain, chronic vertigo, and was starting to have chronic hip pain. I was very concerned I may not be able to continue this work,…..and I’m hoping to work to age 70.
I first learned about BT – when I saw Deanna on a FB ad, and I thought – hmmm, what is this? After doing a little investigation into this block she was holding, I thought to myself….now this is a very smart lady! But because my life was busy enough, I went on, thinking I just didn’t have time to learn anything new. But the universe is funny, just a few weeks later, I would hear about it again from a group of on-line friends. We chat nearly everyday for years, and they happened to mention something about blocking. I must have totally missed this conversation, because they all had bought blocks and were doing this program called Block Therapy. I asked them to fill me in, and I quickly knew I had to try this for myself.
And the universe wanted to make sure I followed through! I had just talked to Deanna about the BTU program because I didn’t just want to buy a block – I wanted to learn all I could and become a Block Instructor. My thinking was this would be a great transition from my current practice to teaching, something I’ve always wanted to do. But it wasn’t just about teaching.
It was the first week of January and I went into the basement to put some decorations away, and I squatted down, and there I was…..I couldn’t get back up! I was totally shocked, I had never had a knee problem, but yet, there I was. All kinds of things went through my head. Why are my legs so weak, why do my knees hurt so bad, and how am I going to get up without hurting myself?! That was the universe telling me – I’ve got to do something or my career is over! It was then, that I made the call…..investing in my future at Block Therapy University!
So, my block buddy and block baby arrived within a week, and I remember the shock at just how much pain was in my hips and IT bands. I went all in and did the core, but also my hips and thighs nearly everyday. Six weeks later I thought, I have to show my husband how much this is helping me, and I said “look – I can do squats”! I demonstrated, but to my surprise – it was way better than I expected. I went down and popped back up so fast, and had a look of shock on my face. There was no pain, no weakness, in fact I felt really strong, like I had been working out, but hadn’t! And the bonus, there wasn’t any creaking knee sounds, just a fluid, effortless movement down and up!
And so my journey began! Here’s just a few things that I have discovered and improved or eliminated using the block:
Weight loss, Tender scalp, Vertigo, Shoulder pain, hip pain, knee pain, foot pain, fallen arch, posture, snoring, fibrocystic breasts, hair loss, pulled muscles, and muscle soreness due to over-use.
I just can’t begin to tell you all the things this therapy has done for me. I call it my “anti-aging” block, and I am addicted! This is truly a journey…….of self discovery, cell renewal/regeneration and so much more that could only happen by doing BT.
