Who is Fascia Space for?
Athletes and movement professionals looking to train more efficiently, increase performance, avoid overuse, aid in recovery and less compensations after injury
Anyone in a profession which causes chronic tension due to repetitive/habitual actions
Someone with ongoing issues related to faulty biomechanics and/or chronic postural compensations – leading to muscle firing inefficiencies/load causing inflammation
Individuals looking to explore spatial medicine, enhance body awareness or play with their availability of space – to take their choice of movement practice to the next level
Children and teens who may be experiencing discomfort with breath, movement, anxiety, mouth breathing and sleep issues
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Tennis/Golfers’ Elbow
- Mouth breathing
- Exercise induced asthma
- ITB issues
- Achilles tendon stiffness
- Thoracic outlet syndrome
- Stiffness from old surgeries or injuries
Kimberley is passionate about fascia and movement. With a deep understanding of the importance of the fascial system to human health, she is a keen advocate, practitioner and educator in the movement industry.
Board-certified by the International Association of Structural Integration (IASI) and with a degree in Exercise & Health Science, Kimberley has over 15 years’ experience in a variety of roles. She has worked in established studios, private gyms and for sporting teams as a sole-care provider or as a team player within multi-disciplinary case management, in Australia, New Zealand and the UK.
Well-versed in a broad range of movement concepts and neuromyofascial techniques for restoring function, adaptability and ease within an individual’s fascial system, Kimberley has worked with runners, soccer and beach volleyball players, dancers, and footballers (including a Brownlow medallist). She is adept at educating young athletes and teens on the importance of training the fascial system. With Matt Shields at the Rugby Academy with UWA Rugby Colts, Kimberley delivered group movement sessions designed around balance, mobilisation and fascial efficiency and incorporated active fascial release and Anatomy Trains techniques to lift biomechanical compensations for each individual player.
More About Kimberley
Kimberley participated in the first fascial dissection in Australia, held by Jason Kiely and Julie Hammond of Anatomy Trains. Over 12 weeks, she learnt dissection techniques, focussing on connective tissue: its properties, adhesions and connections throughout the body.
Studying dance, pilates, movement and anatomy under inspirational people such as Thomas Myers, James Earls, Ido Portal, Allan Menezes, Ari-Pekka Lindberg and Barbara Mayr, Kimberley’s continuous drive for learning has taken her around Australia and the world to study: from Perth to Sydney, to the UK and Austria.
What can I expect in a session?
Firstly a full case history including current medications is undertaken. Fascia Space encourages communication between health professionals to ensure holistic care and awareness of contraindications. Then a functional and postural assessment will take place, while you stand.
Most of the rest the session is spent working on the table or stool, however frequently during the session you may be asked to stand and walk and while discussing any changes in sensation and postural awareness.
What should I wear to a session?
It is important to wear something you are comfortable to walk around in, yet I will need to be able to see your structure and directly touch your skin. Therefore the preferred attire for each session is underwear.
Loose running shorts can also be a great alternative to underwear. For women, a stretchy tank or strapless tube can also work well so the fabric can easily be shifted to access your torso.
How much is a session?
Initial Consult – $150
45mins – $110
60mins – $130
75mins – $150
90mins – $170
All services are non-rebatable.
What can I hope to achieve through Fascia Space?
- Improved kinesthetic intelligence – you’ll be more aware of both the SENSORY INFORMATION and MOTOR ACCESS of your entire body – with a reduction numb, sticky holding patterns which can lead to ‘sensory motor amnesia’
- Skeletal alignment and support – less MYOFASCIAL effort when standing and moving leads to less TENSION or COMPENSATORY MOVEMENTS when active
- Increased range of motion and ease of movement
- Increased length and space – across the joints and limbs
- Tensegrity – more evenness of tone around the skeleton through balancing the MYOFASCIAL tissues
- Increased resilience – able to bear more stress and still come back to a place of balance
How does Fascia Space work?
- By addressing the body as a whole to correct postural misalignments – not just a single symptom
- Giving adaptability so the body can reorganise and reintegrate itself
- Establishes lines of balance, improves function, increases tissue elasticity and hydration
- Releases undesirable tension/strain/discomfort in the neuromyofascial
- Encourages lasting, positive physiological changes in the connective tissue
