How many treatments will it take to experience tension release?
Individuals adapt differently to Profound Tension Release technique, depending on variables to do with the depth and longevity of their embodied tension, their lifestyle, level of fitness, diet etc. Dramatic release of tension can be experienced but more usually a person will progress through a series of visits. Assessments are made during each visit to determine progress towards the person’s goals. 4 – 6 visits may see significant positive change.

When you experience trauma, for example an injury, surgery, inflammation or repetitive strain, adhesions can form within the connective tissue (fascia) network. An adhesion is scar tissue that forms between two surfaces, causing the tissues to stick together. They can form between different layers of fascia, between the fascia and the muscles, the fascia and the nerves, and even between the fascia and the organs.
Scar tissue causes the connective tissue to shorten and tighten in some areas while becoming weak and flaccid in others. This can pull the spine and joints out of alignment or allow them to fall out of alignment. If scar tissue forms in multiple locations, this further complicates the dysfunction in the connective tissue network. Scar tissue can become larger and tighter over time resulting in worsening symptoms.
Because the connective tissue network is one continuous net of tissue; pain and dysfunction can spread throughout the body or occur in distant locations to the original injury. Scar tissue impinges nerves, causing them to misfire. It disrupts the smooth flow of blood, lymph, and energy throughout the body resulting in not only chronic pain and poor posture, but also many other health conditions. Much of the time, this scar tissue cannot be seen using x-rays or imaging tests.
