    Myofascial Magic: The Automagically Fabulous Pelvic Foot

    Myofascial Magic: The Automagically Fabulous Pelvic Foot

    Paul and Joanne share their experience and stories about pelvic issues, how they affect so many of us, and... how misunderstood they might be! How can we “rephrase” our understanding of the mythical “Pelvic Floor” and discover the magic of releasing the Pelvic Foot?  
    This is not a made up idea, by movement instructors who didn’t like learning anatomy! Paul talks about the key science behind this structural understanding of the human body. Effectively, you have a pelvic foot – not a pelvic floor... It’s true, and magic happens when you know that, know how to treat that and know how to move so that you can enjoy freedom from so many issues that are usually assigned to the “pelvic floor”. 
    There are many elements in Myofascial Magic that we can bring to the table (or mat or machine when we are teaching) that will automagically enhance all kinds of issues!

    Myofascial Magic: Shoulder Shrugs and Bugs

    Myofascial Magic: Shoulder Shrugs and Bugs

    Shoulders are such an expressive part of us! A shrug can replace a thousand words, right? Do you, or any of your clients, experience shoulder impingement, frozen shoulder, aching, stiffness or just limited range of motion in this amazing, if complex, “joint”?
    In this episode Paul and Joanne share some delightful stories about shoulders. What do you gain from training them? How can you avoid straining them? What are the many elements in Myofascial Magic that we can bring to the table (or mat or machine, when we are teaching) that will automagically enhance working with shoulders?

    There are some really valuable points in this fascinating discussion.

    If you'd like more information on the next available Myofascial Magic In Action course, you can watch our free webinar here or contact us on info@myofascialmagic.com to book a free informal discovery chat with Paul or Joanne. We always love hearing from you!

    John Sharkey: Why the *fascia* should you care about the difference between Continuity and Contiguity?

    John Sharkey: Why the *fascia* should you care about the difference between Continuity and Contiguity?

    This episode covers the importance of fascia and how John Sharkey regards it as a process, rather than an object. It explains why some of us have difficulty defining fascia, or describing its paradigm-shifting significance to our colleagues and clients, friends and family. John is such a fabulous story teller and so well informed that you can literally collect the gems as we romp through this discussion covering a number of topics from surgery and dissection to crystal healing and consciousness!!
    Interviewing John is always a delight and you can enjoy other episodes with him in previous series of this podcast too.
    For further information on Human Dissection Programmes under John’s brilliant supervision, please you can enquire at https://ntc.ie/course/dissection-italy/

    Myofascial Magic: Walking the Walk

    Myofascial Magic: Walking the Walk

    Welcome to the second episode of our Myofascial Magic strand! I recently co-founded Myofascial Magic In Action with the esteemed Paul Thornley, with the mission of providing practitioners with client-centred micro-movement keys.  And now we're bringing you our shared passion - and the answer to some of your burning questions - in the form of this special joint podcast series, releasing every couple of weeks.

    In this episode we talk about one of the most fundamental movements of most of our lives - WALKING...  Fifteen years ago Monty Python did a sketch called The Ministry of Silly Walks. It was hilarious (look it up on YouTube for a giggle!). But the truth is, that we all have a walking pattern that may or may not serve us as well as it could. Have you watched animals walking? Have you noticed that different people often mimic different animals? Like Penguins (that tend to rock and shuffle), or Bears (who have an ipsilateral swing) or Flamingos, that spiral-lift one foot after the other. It’s fascinating.

    A great deal of the biomechanical information out there about “correct walking gait” focuses on foot placement and toe-heel relationships. It measures things like stride length and all sorts of metrics that prove pretty meaningless in practice. They fail us miserably when we just want to be able to move well and BONUS – actually receive energy from walking, rather than lose it. YES – that is possible.

    In this episode Paul tells a gorgeous story from his army days and how cleverly walking was understood so that a unit of soldiers (of all different heights, sizes and abilities) could all walk in sync and arrive at the same time. What actually happens when we recognise how the Pelvic Foot works? How do we release rebound energy? And even give it back to the body? Listen in as we explore it all!

    We hope you get a lot out of this conversation,
    thank you for being here,
    Joanne and Paul

    Fascia, the In-Between and the Sandwich Generation!

    Fascia, the In-Between and the Sandwich Generation!

    It's just been Mother's Day here in the UK, which inspired me to take a deep dive into "the in-between" which is a rich source of magic in my life.  As a mother and a daughter, I live in the in-between of those two roles. This podcast is a bit about my personal journey with that, the in-between tissue  of the fascia, and how this incredible matrix forms the in-between of us... We are all, after all, seeking the magic balance between understanding the science and spirit of this living architecture of ours! It's the magic of that I get so hooked on!

    You can tell how important that magic is to me by the title of my next book, and course of the same name, Myofascial Magic In Action.  Watch this space for the publication date, and listen to the special MMIA episodes I'm doing with Paul Thornley on this channel, to find out more about the course.

    Wishing you all well,
    Joanne
