CORE FASCIAL RELEASE

Cox order & restore energy

The goal of any Core Fascial Release session is to build integrity & strength into the body by inviting the client to discover where & how they are stuck, and how they might change the way they live as they become unstuck. CORE  systematically works through the connective tissue/fascia of your body to find where there is tension, pain, restriction, add movement, breath and to create EASE.
Who will benefit from Core Fascial Release? 
Anyone who;
Is chasing pain, with symptoms ‘hopping’ around the body, and perhaps back again 
Has Fibromyalgia.
Feels their emotions are holding them back physically.
Feels ‘stuck’
Has heard about the Vagus nerve and would like to explore that area.
Has tried alternative treatments without reaching their goal & would like to go deeper.
CORE bodywork is done with the hands and the head, but more importantly, the heart.
