Megan is able to help you find the cause of your soft tissue problem and work with you to release it. A few to several sessions later, many clients have had their issues completely resolved. In other cases, keeping a regular (monthly) scheduled appointment to do a couple stretches together is enough to keep the problem from troubling your daily life.
The musculoskeletal system of the body works within the constraints of a network of tissue known as connective tissue or fascia. This is the target tissue of my work. By creating more space in your fascial network, the muscles are better able to function the way they were meant to and in their full range of motion. We can work together to create new (better!) patterns of movement that support your more spacious body.
Be ready to pay attention! Go for walks and notice how your body is feeling between sessions. Bring feedback to your next appointment.
Come ready to work. This is hard and intense work. Your body may want to shy away from it at first. Leaning in, focusing on the task at hand, and staying with your body during the session is important.
Come ready to learn something about your individual body, about how your body supports your daily movements and postures, and how you can make positive changes in your movements and postures.
Be ready to make some small changes to your environment or habits. You may realize after beginning this work that you need to, for instance, move things around in your kitchen so they are handier and you aren’t reaching across for something regularly.
Slow and steady wins this race. Do every Rossiter exercise slowly and deliberately. Don’t shy away from the parts of the stretch that cause the most sensation. This is where the important progress of this work happens.
Build global awareness in your body. As we unwind a troubled shoulder for instance, some other body part may begin to develop an “issue.” Your body works together in a very complex dance and what we do in one area may well effect another. Bringing this information to your Rossiter coach is crucial to figuring out the big picture of your shoulder problem.
