What is Fascia?

Fascia is the continuous, 3D web of connective tissue found throughout your body. It’s the tissue that connects and permeates muscle, organs, blood vessels and nerves. When hydrated and undamaged, fascia surrounds, cushions, protects, stores energy, separates & melds.

Visualise a dry sponge: It’s brittle, rigid and breaks easily. A wet sponge is hydrated, bouncy, adaptable and strong. Our fascia is the same. Complex and intricate, the fascial system is essential to human stability and movement. It enhances athletic performance and is significant in recovery from injury and trauma.

When the body becomes unbalanced, compensations occur to remain upright. This can lead to patterns of held tension as your system struggles to deal with muscle and fascia, then eventually bone and joint, being under constant strain.

Fascia Space will give you the tools to lift, unwind and deconstruct these tension patterns encouraging balance of the myofascial meridians throughout your body – in the words of Thomas Myers, “restores the natural settings for ease, fluidity and harmony.”

Structural Integration – 12 Series

“Explore the possibility of change in how you use and experience your body.”

Structural Integration (SI) is a 12 step system that seeks to reorganise the body’s connective tissues restoring it to its natural balance, alignment, length and ease. SI is unique in that it achieves this through the manipulation of fascia, the scaffolding system that supports and connects every cell in the body.


  • Sessions 1 – 4 (Superficial Sessions)
    Addressing the superficial planes of the body so you can feel freedom of movement.
  • Sessions 5 – 8 (Core sessions)
    Opening the deeper structures of the breathing and pelvic diaphragms.
  • Sessions 9 – 12 (Integration sessions)
    Ensuring all myofascial meridians are balanced and the structural changes become part of our movement.

60/75 minutes per session

It consists of deep, slow myofascial manipulation which encourages the freeing and repositioning of the fascial fabric. This is coupled with movement re-education and integration of movement patterns, so the new alignment becomes part of who you are, not something you have to work at or repeatedly see a practitioner to maintain.

Structural Integration is based on the work of Dr. Ida P. Rolf, PhD. SI practitioners are trained at SI schools in accordance with standards established by the International Association of Structural Integrators (IASI). Practitioners who display the Board Certified Structural Integrator (BCSI) credential have graduated from an IASI-approved training program and passed a basic competency exam.

Active Fascial Release

AFR is recommended for athletes, children and teens who are experiencing limitations with exisiting movement patterns.

This method:

identifies sticky or viscous fascia during movement

addresses the body in function as a whole

allows the practitioner to efficiently assess compensation patterns and/or hinge points which are a product of faulty movement mechanics or adhesions

integrates the core principles of: rotation, flexion, extension, bending, lunging, squatting, reaching through guided movement relating to gait and breath

encourages unconscious movement patterns through neural imprinting techniques

eases myofascial pain and restrictions

coordinates sensory information and motor impulse efficiently

45/60 minutes per session

Read More

Developed by James Earls, SI practitioner, Anatomy Trains teacher and author of the best seller, Born to Walk.

AFR combines elements of motor control theory with a neuromyofascial approach to identify, treat & re-educate a client’s movement patterns.

The blending of guided movement with various soft tissue engagement protocols has created a method that addresses the body as a whole and acknowledges the roles of the body’s various tissues and their interrelationships.

Face Fascia

Recommended to be completed as part of the 12 series – however, a single session may benefit those who are experiencing:

    frequent headaches associated with tight skull and jaw muscles

    clicky or locked jaw

    inability to open the mouth wide without pain or restriction

    difficulty in breathing through nose especially when asleep or relaxing

    clenching the jaw

    problems or concerns before or after dental work

    60 minutes per session

    Fascia Space

    Breath & Gait

    We walk and breathe everyday.


    Fascia Space can identify and rectify breathing issues if your:

    shoulders are tight, thereby restricting your breath

    front and back of the body are opening evenly

    floating ribs and rib heads are moving or stuck

    lungs & diaphragm can fully expand

    Fascia Space draws from breath techniques:

    Over the course of an average day we breathe between 17,000 – 30,000 times, maybe even 50,000 times if we are active. When was the last time you thought about your breath, or the way you walk?

    If these two unconscious actions are not working to their full capacity we can limit our movement potential and overall wellbeing.


    Are you training regularly but not seeing improvement? Do you repeatedly deal with the same injury, niggle or tightness?

    how your feet connect to the ground

    if your arches are moving

    if you shuffle or spring

    and teach you to:

    • stimulate the small nerves in the sole of the foot which respond to texture and vibrations
    • Strengthen deep muscles of the foot
    • Generate faster stability
    • Lower injury risk

    60 minutes per session

    Move It Or Lose It

    Movement is an integral part of shaping the change. Fascia is our system of Biomechanical Regulation – how we move, how we function, how we process stimuli from our internal and external environment. We benefit from seeing it, training it, and treating it as a continuous, connected system.

    Fascia Space uses movement concepts developed around the idea of fascial fitness.

    Fascial movement training provides stimulus that can help improve resiliency and optimise the mechanical efficiency of fascia and elastic connective tissues.

    One of the most significant benefits of training your fascia is that proper loading through physical activity can influence a younger, more adaptable architecture of connective tissue.

    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
