SMT Movement and mobility sessions
Synergetic™ Myofascial Therapy – Movement session with Magnus Eklund LMT 144, BCSI, ISSA certified fitness trainer, SMT Mobility Specialist. 60 Minutes for $100.
What is a movement mobility session?
The focus on movement sessions is to complement Synergetic™ Myofascial Therapy and Structural Integration hands-on sessions by further improving upon posture and mobility. Each session consists of flexibility and joint range of motion movements, light resistance strength exercises, functional movement exercises, breathing techniques, and advanced myofascial hands-on techniques as needed. The sessions are individualized and tailored for your specific mobility needs based off specific assessments, passive and active. We generally start with a series of three and can be scheduled weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly.
Why is mobility important?
According to the late Dr. Ida P. Rolf, a Ph.D. in biochemistry (New York University) and founder of Structural Integration, a body in structural balance moves more effectively in the gravitational field. Bad posture such as forward head posture, slumped shoulders, excessive spinal curvatures such as lordosis and kyphosis, fallen arches in the feet, and more, inhibits functional movement, normal joint range of motion and overall mobility.
For example, a severe forward head posture can add 30 pounds of weight pressure to the spine. Postural misalignments often lead to aches and pains and stiffness in the body. It is also the cause of many injuries as someone starts an exercise program. Dr. Ida P. Rolf talked about stacking the blocks in the body. When the body gets out of structural balance, we end up fighting gravity, which will cause muscles and fascia to tighten and cause adhesions or as some say “knots” in the soft tissue.
