To better understand what Block Therapy is, let’s first explore what fascia is and the events that led to its creation.


Fascia has the power to seal up to bone with a force of 2000 pounds per square inch. That’s an incredible amount if you consider that we pump our tires at 35 pounds per square inch.


Fascia compresses over time. If we allow this compression to go unchecked, fat builds up, the disease may settle and pains could become chronic.

Removing adhesions caused by scar tissue in your body is important to long-lasting health. 


Block Therapy goes deep into the root cause of issues, rather than just treating surface symptoms.

Components ofBlock Therapy

Block Therapy has 3 components:

  • therapy
  • meditation
  • exercise

Creating Space

In chronic pain, all the pressure on our joints squeezes out space in between them. This makes things worse and causes more inflammation.

This is why we need to create space before we can address the issues that are preventing us from experiencing health.

Traditional methods often only treat the surface. Fluid Isometrics gets deeper because it follows spiral patterns found in nature. These patterns help release fascia adhesions where the issues are.

Pain is one signal that our cells are dying, so once we release adhesions we allow blood flow to bring our cells back to health.


Inflating Space

Diaphragmatic breathing is important because it:

helps replace the negative pressure in our bodies “releases” stress from your muscles, organs, and joints

helps relieve chronic pain by releasing unnecessary tension that builds up over time it also releases the adhesions in the core and ribcage which in

Releasing the adhesions in the core is very important because it creates a greater strength to the diaphragm muscle.

Most people concentrate on inhalation. And that’s understandable because it’s the easier action. When we inhale we are moving with gravity, but when we exhale we are pushing against gravity.

Training and creating a really strong diagram is integral to Block Therapy, ensuring optimal oxygen absorption in the body, as well as optimal removal of waste from the body.


Maintaining Space

Proper postural alignment is the position of the body where there is no stress on either side.

We are all asymmetrical to some degree, and every movement that we make will cause a shift in weight distribution.

The tongue muscle is designed to support the weight of the head. Strengthening proper foundations is crucial to support proper cell alignment.


Cause Sites vs. Pain Sites


The fascia system of connective tissue interlaces our body from head to toe and, typically, the areas where people experience chronic pain is not the cause site.

eg. the lower legs and feet are often a major cause site for issues up the body, including headaches and shoulder pain even issues with our size and shape.

Block Therapy system also ensures both causes sites are addressed.


Acute Pain


Acute pain from an injury is traditionally managed with what’s known as the RICE method: Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation. This is designed to slow and limit inflammation. When inflammation is not used for what it was made to do, it can create more problems. When inflammation is used for what it was made to do, then it can help rebuild damaged tissue.

The nutrients required to rebuild the tissue are sent in the inflammation. Our goal is to assist the inflammation through proper practice,  so it can do its job. This is what the Block Therapy system does.



Despite our best intentions to build a healthy body with exercise, frequent traditional workouts can be damaging to the muscles.

The resistance that doesn’t change the length of a muscle is called “Isometric” It strengthens the muscles without lengthening or shortening them, unlike traditional exercises (like curling your biceps) where they shorten and lengthen. Isometrics activate more muscle fibres which are necessary for proper growth and hardens the mitochondria

In Block Therapy, we do isometrics while in different block positions. eg. when blocking the hip flexor, that same leg can be lifted off the floor. This has a dual effect, the block buddy is creating space in the front of the hip, where it has shortened, it’s also countering the negative effects of poor posture.



The combination of pressure and breathing leads to a deep level of relaxation. This impacts our parasympathetic nervous system, decreasing blood pressure while conserving energy as it slows our heart rate.


Next Steps


We have different options that you can take to experience Block Therapy
