You’re Invited to Dive Deep Into Fascia
When Kelly Clancy, OTR/L began looking for answers that would explain why her clients weren’t improving with the techniques she already knew, she learned more techniques–structural medicine, Bowenwork, craniosacral therapy, and energy medicine—trying to find the missing piece that would bring her clients the healing they needed.
After years of reading, going to conferences alongside researchers, and learning new bodywork methods, she landed upon the word that would change her practice. Here is what she says about fascia:
Fascia is something I learned about in my OT program as the white gunk that’s in the way during dissection. I never learned that fascia is more than a layer under the skin—because the research on fascia hadn’t been done yet.
Now, I read everything I can about fascia, and the text most directly helpful to my OT practice is Tom Myers’ Anatomy Trains. Tom is a manual therapist, by way of structural integration and Rolfing, and his writing on the ways fascia operates in our bodies immediately changed the way I treated my clients.
Interested in learning more about fascia? Join Holistic OT Kelly Clancy in an 8-month long Fascia Journal Club, and answer questions like:
- What is fascia? Why should fascia matter to us?
- Why do holistic manual and movement therapies work?
- When our methods aren’t working, what can we do about it?
