Cold + Your Fascia
As the temperature drops and the cold rolls in sometimes your body becomes a bit shocked. Especially, here in Wichita where one day is 65 and the next is 30. And, for some of us we "feel it in our bones". When weather changes to cold, cold, cold all sorts of happenings can occur in your body.
First off, fascia doesn't like cold weather...that is until you get moving. Moving around, specifically stretching and purposeful movements, allows the systems in your body to warm up, hydrate your fascia and get joint fluid moving.
First off, remember to be gentle with yourself...mind, body and spirit!
Self-treatments are what you need to be doing in between hands-on sessions to continue the work that is happening on the table.

So, if you are wondering what you can be doing to help yourself the following is a short list I have piled together during the past few years that I have been involved in myofascial release therapy.
