I am a Master Level Trainer and Certified Fascianator Method Practitioner and AFAA Certified Group Fitness Instructor. I offer Online Fascianator Method Classes on zoom, In Person and On-Demand 24/7 membership.
I have a degree and background in Nutrition and have been involved with health and passionate about fitness for more than 36 years. My husband and I are older parents and we are pain free, and full of energy! I love sharing things I believe can make a positive impact on feeling better and empowering others to live an activated and healthier life with nutrition and facial fitness.
When I was introduced to fascial fitness with The Fascianator Method of self-myofascial release (SMR), developed by Anthony and Eileen Crisco, I fell in love with it. I immediately knew it was my missing link to helping my body feel better and do more! I believe what we have is a blessing for those who are open to learning how they can help their body heal themself naturally - far more effectively.
Personally, I have never really suffered from long term chronic “tissue issues”, but I have experienced being “sidelined” from the things I love to do - because of acute pain due to over-exercising and improper stretching. Think hip flexors, calves, lower back and piriformis sciatica pain. I had been seeing a chiropractor for glutes/piriformis /sciatic issues for a few months without any real progress.
Then, I attended a Fascianator Method class, and had immediate reduction in my pain. Healthy fascia has been called “The Missing Link” in fitness. This is truly a perfect way to activate and optimize your fitness so you can achieve "Optimal Performance Endurance and Strength with the Management of Disease, Fatigue, Stress and Reduced Sedentary behavior" without pain.
Why is Fascia Health Important?
Fascia, also known as connective tissue, is recognized as our largest body organ system (2012). It is responsible for Shape, Structure, Communication and Transportation of nutrients.
Fascia is a specialized system of the body that has the appearance of a spider’s web. It is very densely woven, covering and penetrating every muscle, bone, nerve, artery and vein, as well as all of our internal organs including the heart, lungs, brain and spinal cord. It does not show up in X-rays, MRI or CT Scans. Fascia is our links 70-80 Trillion Cells, 900 ligaments, 622 muscles, 206 bones, 36 joints,1,000 lymph nodes, 45 miles of nerves and 60K miles of blood vessels, veins, capillaries.
When it gets hard, dry and crusty through age or injury, it impinges our arteries, veins, nerve and lymphatic pathways.
Why The Fascianator Method?
The Fascianator Method, developed by Anthony and Eileen Chrisco, founding Members of the International Fascia Society.
It is a natural solution for chronic pain relief ... and so much more! The Fascianator Method of rolling is a form of self-myofascial release (SMR), using a special roller called The Fascianator. Using the Fascianator Method sequence, you roll over 100 body parts from feet up to your skull. This hard roller is designed with a specific density and is 3 1/2 inches in diameter, which allows you to roll certain areas of the body that larger rollers cannot reach.
