Muscle Fascia Integration Therapy can help women with menstrual and premenstrual syndrome symptoms. Picture the fascia tightening like a powerful three-dimensional net around the pelvic structures. Then as the woman begins to bloat as her menstrual cycle begins, the combination of fascial tightness and increasing internal pressure begins to exert heavy pressure on nerves, blood vessels, etc., and the cramps begin, the back tightens and all the other unpleasant effects are a reaction to the abnormal internal pressure. Abdominal release can treat the unpleasant and/or painful symptoms of pregnancy and childbirth, recurrent bladder pain and infection, frequency, urgency and/or incontinence, painful intercourse, sexual dysfunction, elimination problems, coccygeal pain, painful episiotomy scars and the list goes on. These problems can, in many cases, be substantially alleviated or eliminated by abdominal release, nontraumatically and gently.
Inflammatory processes, such as endometriosis, can cause the fascial layers to adhere to adjoining tissue, creating pain and symptoms. Scars from abdominal, pelvic & hip surgery, Caesarean section, trauma, sterilization or episiotomy scars can also create havoc in the pelvic area, causing menstrual dysfunction, pelvic pain, painful intercourse, constipation, diarrhoea and hemorrhoids. Recent statistics have shown hysterectomies are performed, on average, every 45 seconds in the U.S., and it has been determined that more than half a million of these procedures a year are deemed unnecessary.
Another common problem encountered is coccygeal disorders from trauma, pelvic torsion and childbirth. A misaligned coccyx can cause a multitude of problems in the pelvic area, including some of those just mentioned, as well as back and neck pain, and/or headaches due to the influence of the dural tube. When the coccyx moves closer to the pubic symphysis, the musculoaponeurotic fibers from the pubis to the coccyx become so slack, they lose their tonus. If the origin and insertion of a muscle move closer together, a great portion of the muscle’s power is lost. A misaligned coccyx can lead to a general decrease in the motility of the entire body, and it should be checked in people who are devitalized or suffering from general depression. Typical symptoms of a sacrococcygeal lesion in a female client are the inability to sit for long periods of time, declining quality of sexual relationships and cystitis.
The nontraumatic, gentle nature of Muscle Fascia Integration Therapy is reassuring to clients, since these effective procedures will not worsen the client’s symptoms or cause harm, it is not meant to replace the important techniques and approaches you currently utilize, but to act as an important added dimension for increasing your effectiveness and permanency of results in relieving pain and restoring function, as well as the quantity and quality of motion. – MFIT
