“Most of us have collected extra tension through the courses of our lives, either from injury or surgery, imitation of our parents or heroes, from our repetitive activities, or attitudes we’ve acquired along the way. These injuries and tension form a pattern in our bodies. It happens below our conscious awareness and becomes part of ‘who we are’. These patterns become written into our muscular tensions, or skeletal form, and into the tissues that go between: the connective tissues.” - Anatomy Trains
Movements created by the human body has always been a fascinating and intriguing subject for me. This paved the way for my quest in strategies for healing and freeing the body. After my training in the school of Anatomy Trains in Australia, I gained a much more profound knowledge in skeletal anatomy and fascia manipulations. Fascia manipulations, or Structural Bodywork, is a manual therapy that has been helping my clients with postural issues, movement dysfunctions, and chronic pain management.
What is fascia?
Fascia is a connective tissue that exists everywhere in the body. It is a connective tissue that wraps around, and “links” the skeletal muscles. A healthy layer of fascia is a sheet that is elastic, supple and hydrated. Efficient movements require healthy layers of fascia to glide along each other smoothly. Fascia is also filled with nerve endings. So when the quality of the fascia changes - perhaps becoming tight and adhered due to overuse/underuse or trauma - the efficiency of fascial movement decreases, and that’s when the sensation of stiffness, the occurrence of chronic pain, and compensatory postural/movement patterns arise.
Structural Bodywork and fascia
Structural Bodywork is a holistic system of superficial and deep manual therapy which aims at bringing changes to the connective tissue, or fascia, and therefore bringing better structural balance to the whole body. Its technique manipulates and releases the connective tissue, reshaping, unwinding and realigning the body to a more optimal postural environment (static) and giving the body a more efficient movement pattern (dynamic).

“I decided to try Jimmy when I saw his post on Instagram about fascia release. I have had issues with my posture, lower back pain and hip problems for years and visited many chiropractors and other massage practitioners which have given temporary relief.
The difference from the work done with jimmy is that I can continue to feel the benefits day after day. I feel more grounded when standing up and no longer lean so much to one side, the pains in my leg and hip and hugely reduced. I highly recommend doing a course of fascia release. It really helps open the body and you will walk away feeling brand new!!”
Pricing & Package
Each session begins with a detailed Bodyreadying and dynamic assessment. Treatments are done on massage table, seated or sometimes standing.
