How Block Therapy Benefits Cellular Health

For cells to be healthy, they need to be fed and clean. As long as a cell is receiving all the cellular requirements and having the toxins and by-products of functioning removed, they will do their job and not complain. It is when a cell or grouping of cells has a limited supply of nutrients that problems start to arise and the health of the cell is of concern.

There are approximately 100 trillion cells that make up the average body. Each of these cells, first and foremost, requires oxygen to function, which is carried to them by the blood. In fact, the brain will die in as little as 5 minutes if deprived of this vital nutrient, and cells are no different. Yet the oxygen supply in the average body is dramatically limited, causing rapid aging, pain and suffering.

So what is the cause of this oxygen deprivation?

We have an incredible muscle in the body called the diaphragm. It is the most unique muscle in the body as it is under both our conscious, and unconscious control. This means that even if we don’t think about breathing, the body will still work to pull in oxygen, however, when we are conscious breathers, the amount of oxygen we take in and absorb into the body is 6 times greater. Here’s why…

When we consciously practice abdominal diaphragmatic breathing, the air is brought to the base of the lungs, where 70% of the oxygen receptor sites, called alveoli, live. We also have a full release of carbon dioxide and waste when we exhale fully, from the diaphragm. The problem is that few people are conscious breathers and the muscles of the upper chest are doing most of the work. When we breathe this way, the air is only taken part way into the lungs, missing out on the majority of receptors for oxygen absorption. This leaves the body starving for this vital nutrient, and cells suffer.

As most people haven’t been practicing conscious breathing, the foundation of the rib cage, which is the diaphragm muscle, isn’t strong, causing a collapse of the rib cage into the core. This, in turn, causes a squishing of the abdominal organs, heart and lungs and an inability for them to function well. As we lose this internal space from the rib cage collapsing, tissue bulges outward giving many the appearance of a big belly. Adding insult to injury, the connective tissue, called fascia, will hold the body out of alignment with a force up to 2000 lbs/square inch, literally freezing the body in this negative state. As gravity is the driver of this aging process, the thicker and denser the body becomes, the faster the aging and degenerative processes occur.

Block Therapy is the solution for this lack of oxygenation as the root focus is to tap into the power of conscious breathing. For this to happen, the frozen fascia, which has sealed the rib cage in this negative alignment, needs to be melted and released. Block Therapy is a program that very safely and efficiently teaches you how to melt through the areas in the tissue that are holding the body in the negative state, thereby creating space in the tissue. Instruction and application of proper breathing, as instructed, inflates that space, creating a lightness and freedom, and education of proper posture maintains the space. As long as there is space in the tissue, between the cells, blood can freely reach each cell, drop off nutrients and pick up waste to keep the tissue fed and clean. Cells which are fed and clean, are healthy, functioning efficiently and happy.

During the past 23 months I have seen people improve their pain, headaches, digestion and also anxiety. When we are breathing the proper way, we are giving the organs an internal massage and they respond by allowing us to feel better in so many ways. The results have been nothing short of amazing for myself and for my clients.  Fascia is becoming a buzzword and I totally understand why.  I help people see that when they hold stress from overwork, physical and emotional behavior patterns, repetitive strain, and even trauma, it is transmitted to the body. When you have a stiff shoulder, for example, often it is not damage to the muscle that it causing it, but a hardening or thickening of the fascia around the shoulder muscles and joint.  This is a very important piece to understand so we can help ourselves heal.  Poor posture, poor flexibility, and repetitive movements pull the fascia into ingrained patterns but the good news is we can fix it!!

Teaching Block Therapy has completely given me a new lease on life. It has made me calm when nothing else would and it is allowing me to spend time with people that truly want to heal their bodies. It takes time but the work is very addictive and helps so many ailments. We get stronger, more flexible and way more in tune with our bodies when we do this work. It can be done anywhere at anytime which is the best thing. For people that cannot get down to the floor, I start by having them use the block on their bed and then eventually as we progress, we can get down to the floor.   We all have to start somewhere but once we do, the benefits are ENDLESS.  I see how my clients and participants get into the zone and calm the body right down while using the block. This work allows us to learn how to forces our fascia to release and that is a beautiful thing.

How Block Therapy Benefits Healing

Pain is a language the body uses to let us know that tissue isn’t being properly fed. Like a baby who cries to let us know they need something, tissue will send a pain signal to let us know it needs something. Pain is of crucial importance in our life because it is like an alarm that goes off when we have been ignoring our cell’s health.

Pain can present immediately if we have injured tissue in some way, and it can come on slowly, over time, if we have been collapsing into our inner space from unconscious breathing and posture. Immediate pain from injury is understood – injury results in pain from damage, however, pain that develops over time with no apparent cause can be confusing.

Ultimately, we are like a building. There are foundations in our body that we need to preserve so every cell can rest in its appropriate place. When we don’t pay attention to proper posture and breathing, the body collapses into itself in a forward, rotational direction. As we begin to fall out of alignment, off balance, the connective tissue, called fascia, develop false walls and false floors in an attempt to build the foundations needed to preserve balance. This tissue compression is dense and lacks blood flow, causing roadblocks. It also seals onto bony surfaces to create stability, with an incredible force of 2000 lbs/square inch. This internal collapse created out of necessity is the root of much of our suffering, as it creates areas in the body that are under immense tension.

“For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.”

When we collapse into the space within, tissue becomes displaced and bulges outward. Let’s consider the low back.

The pelvis is the foundation of the core of the body and has a specific alignment to support the organs that it houses. There are certain postural requirements that need to be practiced in order to keep the alignment preserved and if practiced, cells are fed and clean and tissue is healthy. This would not be a body that experiences pain. Unfortunately, the majority of people do not pay service to these requirements and the alignment of the pelvis is affected. The asymmetry and imbalance from unconscious posture causes a thickening of fascia in the front from compression and a subsequent pulling causing fatigue in the back. The organs in this area will be affected, as they don’t have the space to receive optimal amounts of blood and oxygen. This body will experience pain.

This is true for the body, in general, and when one area is out of balance, the whole body is out of balance. As long as cells are fed and clean and they are sitting in their right place, there is no tension, no pain. This is also a tissue state that would heal quickly if injury does occur. The body is designed to be incredibly efficient at repair, if we give it what it needs, which is blood and oxygen.

Block Therapy provides the necessary education and application to create that healthy tissue state. With Block Therapy you are instructed how to release the false walls and false floors created from unconscious posture and breathing, and to breathe oxygen into the space to feed the cells what they need to function. In the 90-day program – ’90 Days To A Whole New You’, you are taught proper postural habits to maintain the alignment required to counter the constant downward pull of gravity. A body that is balanced and aligned is a healthy body experiencing freedom of movement and function. If you feel pain, somewhere there is compressed tissue blocking the flow of blood and oxygen to that area.

How Block Therapy Benefits Tissue Rejuvenation

As long as cells are fed and clean they function with ease. Whether a skin cell, brain cell, heart cell, muscle cell….., cells simply need to receive what they require to do their job and need an environment not riddled with waste. The bottom line is that cells need a full supply of oxygen and blood flow to feel and look good.

As we advance in years, gravity accumulates in our tissue. Basically, gravity, over time, equals tissue compression. We literally become shorter and wider as we age as a result of collapsing into our internal space. Tissue compression gets in the way of optimal blood flowing to cells and cells not receiving enough food to function fatigue. An area sluggish in its flow also becomes dirty as toxins and by-products of functioning can’t easily be removed.

If we are looking at a face, we know that an accumulation of time will age the skin, but does it have to?

We need to understand that it is because of unconscious posture and breathing that we collapse into our inner space, causing blockage. This is true of the skin on the face as well. If you start to notice posture, people simply aren’t supporting the weight of the head properly. Most have a head that has fallen forward significantly and that has tilted to one side. The body wants to be correct in it’s alignment and it is the connective tissue, or fascia, that grips onto bony surfaces to create stability where there is not.

As the rib cage falls into the core from unconscious breathing, this creates a momentum of the head falling forward. Fascia will grip onto the skull and the bones in the face accumulating density over time. These grips limit blood and oxygen flow to cells creating lifeless, saggy looking skin. As waste can’t be removed efficiently, discoloration and breakouts occur. Our appearance, over time, will change as cells starve and accumulate dirt and debris.

Block Therapy changes this because it is very efficient at removing the grips that are blocking blood and oxygen to cells. Tissue has literally become hard and frozen where there is limited flow. Block Therapy teaches you how to melt through tissue by combining pressure over time with focused attention in areas with the Block Buddy, which creates heat, and with proper diaphragmatic breathing, which is like turning on the furnace in the body. This combination is extremely efficient at releasing the grips of frozen fascia from bone, improving blood and oxygen flow to feed and clean tissue, awakening cells to their function and integrity.

This is true of cells everywhere in the body. Age in any tissue results from gravity causing compression. This is where pain comes in. Pain in tissue is a language for tissue compression. Wherever there is pain, there is blockage. Teaching people to become pain seekers with Block Therapy is an incredibly efficient way to find the blocks in the tissue causing aging, and to reverse aging by melting through those blocks.
