Awaken Then Strengthen
Cellular Alignment Is The Key To Strengthening Your Body In The Healthiest, Most Aesthetic Way
One of the biggest factors of poor posture is technology. Just look at how you are sitting or standing right now. Where is your head aligned… how about your shoulders…. now your ribcage… is your ribcage collapsed into your core? Where are you breathing from… your chest or your belly? Is your pelvis in alignment? You are most likely tilting your pelvis too far forward or in the opposite direction. This affects everything. And I can go on… and I do! But not quite yet. To finish my point, technology is the culprit to poor posture.
Now let’s say you’ve been sitting and standing like this for hours each day. Hold on, it’s time to go to your fitness class or your workout. Now you are training from a base foundation of poor alignment. If you are starting from incorrect posture, you are only adding more compression to your fascia and your muscles. This will literally strengthen your body further out of alignment.
Sounds frustrating doesn’t it.
Well, I was there…
I would get out of the gym feeling great from the endorphins being released and the blood rushing through my veins.
I even took this to the extent where I competed multiple times over years and ended up on a National stage... completely natural.
Let me mention... this should NOT be your goal. People do not approach this from the perspective of health. You really have to understand your body to achieve this level while still maintaining proper health.
However, after weeks, months or years of doing this regularly, I started to feel off.
Pain started to surface, my posture was horrendous, I had to constantly crack my back and neck, move my body in weird direction trying to stretch it out or get on my foam roller that didn’t serve me well.
So... now what?
Many will see professionals and spends hundreds if not thousands of dollars per month on treatments. Something you have to continually go to in order to get relief. If that doesn’t work… the next step is surgery, which will inevitably create more scar tissue in the injured area.
Even if you are suffering with a herniated disk, frozen shoulder, carpal tunnel syndrome - any pain really, understand that the body has the innate ability to heal and bring the body back to where it needs to be.
You just need to understand the correct process.
No matter your age, gender, or condition, it is never too late. Let me repeat that.
IT IS NEVER TOO LATE.
If you are one who is serious about your health, posture, alignment and being fit, you CAN reverse the entanglement you are in.
No matter what you’re doing, if its going to the gym, a fitness class, yoga, sports, picking up your laundry or doing yard work, you need to align your body correctly.
Before getting to this phase...
...we need to understand the fascia system and how to release it.
Fascia is our connective tissue holding all structures in the body together - this system literally connects every cell in our body. Due to poor posture, injury and surgery, the fascia can hold the body out of alignment with a force of up to 2000lbs/square inch. The fascia is responsible for nearly all issues in the body - especially pain, posture and performance.
You may be wondering… “Get to the point… how do I release my fascia and bring my body into proper alignment?”
This is what Block Therapy does. It is a self care body work practice that releases the fascia system, oxygenates your cells and tissue, and brings awareness to your posture and alignment. You lay on our tool, the Block Buddy, for a minimum of 3 minutes in each position with instruction of proper diaphragmatic breathing to release the compression and scar tissue in the body which has been manipulating the biomechanics of the body.
By doing Block Therapy, you will:
In order to follow “Phase 1 of the Block for Fitness Program - Rebuilding Your Postural Foundations”...
...everyone needs to go through the Block Therapy Starter Program. This is essential so you can release the fascia throughout the entire body. We never want to jump into any form of exercise or fitness if you haven’t released the fascia and learned how to breath through your diaphragm.
Once you have completed the Starter Program (9 Day Full Body Fascia Program), you are ready to jump in. You will have a 14 day trial to see if this is what you want to pursue. (most people do)
Here is a brief description of what is included in Phase 1 of the Block for Fitness program.

Some things you may ponder...
+ "But it's just a block..."
We hear this all the time... and ultimately you're right, it is a block made from bamboo!
+ How is Block Therapy different than any other fascia modalities?
It all comes down to persuasion vs force.
Block Therapy persuades your tissue to melt and release. Your bodyweight and gravity with the pressure on the Block combined with proper diaphragmatic breathing causes the fascia to release.
There are other fascia methods that are popular that come from a forceful intension. By doing so, you are tearing the fascia which creates injury. This ultimately will result in the build up of scar tissue.
There are 3 things you need to do to make change in your body:
Adhesions in fascia block blood and oxygen flow to cells. For cells to be healthy they need to be properly fed and clean. Melting adhesions and creating space improve circulation and gives what they require to function optimally.
Oxygen is the #1 nutrient cells require to thrive. Education of proper diaphragmatic breathing (most notably the exhalation phase) is crucial in order to ensure each and every one of your 100 trillion cells are fed and clean.
Incorrect posture is a key factor in the development of the adhesions that block blood and oxygen flow to cells. Strengthening proper foundation to support the body maintains the necessary space.
+ What if I am unable to exercise?
Block Therapy does not require any skill or much energy expenditure. You are always in full control while you are doing Block Therapy. We instruct you how to use the Block safely - as one of ours rules is "your breath is your guide". A great feature with Block Therapy is that you will not sweat... unless that is your intention.
Block Therapy is a therapy, exercise and meditation all in one.
+ Is this a home program?
The beautiful thing with Block Therapy is that you can practice wherever and whenever you would like. This practice does not require a gym, studio or clinic to attend.
You can do this in the most comfortable areas at your home or ramp this up and perform in a studio. This is up to you.
We want to make sure all people can do Block Therapy... even if you are bed ridden. You can bring the Block with you wherever you go.
Travel frequently? No issue. You can bring your personal therapist - your Block Buddy with you anywhere you go - even on a plane.
