Taking Control of Your Body Has Never Been So Easy
1. A Healthy Diet
You have probably heard this before - and even tried this for yourself. For some, this can definitely work. What about the others? Why hasn’t this worked for you? Maybe you have seen some changes but they seem hard to maintain.
The issue with this formula is we only understand part of the equation.
Reducing calories and expending energy is important, however compression and ballooning are of equal importance while looking at reducing/controlling your weight and/or cellulite in a healthy way.
I know, back in my twenties, I was in university for Athletic Therapy. I applied what I learned to try to get the body I longed for, yet the harder I worked, the bigger and more toxic I became. I hated my body and was so frustrated.
It wasn’t until I started applying this new awareness that I began to see results . . . and they happened fast.
Let me explain.
1. Size Loss - Space Gain
I don’t like using the term weight loss. A healthy size and shape is the goal, not the number on the scale. The reality is that compression from a collapsing posture, as well as from aging, causes ballooning.
There is an optimal amount of space inside the body. This allows for flow of nutrients to cells, and the removal of waste from cells. When we compress, we lose space in one area causing ballooning in another. But to add to this, the areas of compression also become toxic from a lack of flow, adding more size to the cells.
With Block Therapy, you will release the compressed areas and improve the flow to keep cells properly fed and clean. This results in a healthy alignment, as well as cells that are calm and relaxed – not cells that are ballooned and stressed.
2. Cellular Integration
Cellular migration is the migration of cells away from their rightful place under the influence of gravity, incorrect posture and unconscious breathing over time. In order to keep you from tipping over, fascia grips to bone; and it does this in a spiral fashion. This causes the appearance of cellulite, as well as pockets of fat (which is really displaced fascia). Those grips also block blood and oxygen flow to cells causing a lack of integration of tissue.
Block Therapy teaches you to release those grips, allowing cells to migrate back to proper alignment and become integrated back into healthy, functioning tissue.

Most people aren’t consciously aware of their posture - especially now with our dependency on technology. Without proper postural foundations, the body falls into its internal space causing compression and ballooning as well as cellular migration away from proper alignment.
Correct cellular alignment allows tissue to be optimally fed and cleaned. We want the nutrients we consume and the oxygen we breathe to be delivered to our cells for optimal health, as well as cellular waste to be removed from the cells. This keeps tissue aligned, smooth and healthy.
As proven in a study in 2014 from the Medical News Today, 84% of weight loss occurs via breathing - specifically the exhalation phase of the breath. Maintaining proper postural foundations ensures the diaphragm will work efficiently to gain the benefits from this.
4. Digestion & Detoxification
Have you ever felt like a balloon that is ready to burst? Do you feel bloated on a regular bases and are confused why? Believe me, you’re not on your own. Let me explain.
Keeping your internal space available allows for the most efficient digestion, absorption and removal of waste. This is what keeps the cells at their most healthy size and shape. The more space we can provide within, the more room there is for flow; both in and out.
Practicing diaphragmatic breathing lifts the ribcage up and out of the core, taking away the internal pressure that causes bloating. It also creates an internal massage for your abdominal organs causing your internal temperature to increase. Each organ needs to be at a proper temperature for optimal digestion, absorption of nutrients and elimination. Toxic cells expand.
Block Therapy focuses on strengthening the diaphragm to ensure this muscle is being used properly, and to support efficient removal of waste.

Typically as we age, our metabolism slows down. Have you noticed it’s harder to lose weight as you get older?
Metabolism is the process by which your body converts what you eat and drink into energy. During this complex biochemical process, calories in food and beverages are combined with oxygen to release the energy your body needs to function.
Breathing with the diaphragm draws the air to the base of the lungs where the
majority of oxygen absorption occurs – it can feed the body up to 6 times the oxygen. This is extremely significant with respect to metabolism.
As Block Therapy’s main focus is to strengthen the diaphragmatic breath, metabolism increases with this practice resulting in greater ease to manage your size and shape, as well as to keep tissue smooth and healthy.
Now that you have a more comprehensive understanding of your fascia system as it relates to weight loss and cellulite, you have the knowledge for a new approach. You no longer have to feel trapped in your body as Block Therapy deals with compression and toxicity.

Some things you may ponder...
+ "But it's just a piece of wood..."
We hear this all the time... and ultimately you're right, it is made from wood!
+ 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.
