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.
My name is Jonna Williamson and I am a registered massage therapist and aspiring fascia master. I graduated from MH Vicars school of Massage Therapy in 2005. My primary focus is to reduce pain and increase flexibility for my clients.
To me the body is a work of art and I am fascinated with how it works. Most recently I have been learning and loving fascia. Fascia is what wraps and holds everyone of our organs and muscles, it is a system which is newly discovered and one we are just starting to understand. This interested was sparked by being introduced to Block Therapy and its founder Deanna Hansen.
Block Therapy is all about melting the adhesions in our fascia and allowing our connective tissue to move freely in our body. This is achieved through proper diaphragmatic breathing, improving posture, and the Block Buddy - a tool used to apply direct pressure. The heat created from breathing along with gravity and body weight work together to restrictions.
I have had a number of accidents with soft tissue damage which has left me suffering from headaches and migraines. Massage therapy has been a life line allowing me to function. Finding Block Therapy has allowed me to more deeply work on my own body. I have seen a big reduction in the number of migraines I have every month.
I have also been struggling with heel spurs and plantar fasciitis to the point where I almost couldn’t walk. Traditional therapy was not giving me sustainability relief and when I started treating my legs, and feet the results were fantastic. I am so happy with the results and healing that is taking place. I reason I am so e cited to share these techniques is because I know that work!
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.
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.
