A combined therapy of Structural Integration, Yoga, Pilates and Corrective Movement to help you achieve higher functionality and ease of movement.
What is Fascia Release?
Fascia surrounds muscles, groups of muscles, blood vessels, organs, and nerves, binding some structures together while permitting others to slide smoothly over each other.
Fascia is designed to be elastic and move freely with muscles and bones. Injury, stress, work-related repetitive movements, and the effects of aging can cause the fascia to lose its elasticity and become shorter, tighter, and denser. Tightened fascia pulls our muscles and skeleton out of proper alignment and posture, which can cause pain, discomfort, and fatigue.
Fascia Release works to lengthen, stretch, and soften the tissue to restore postural balance, ease of movement, and a feeling of being more at home in your own body. It is practiced in an organized series of sessions or individual sessions within a framework that is designed to restore postural balance by aligning and integrating the body in gravity.
Who are sessions for?
People of all ages for a wide range of reasons
Neck and head injury
Shoulder and rotator dysfunction
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Jessa is the most superb collaborator for human movement. I can trust her implicitly to co-care with my patients in a way where communication is wide open and understanding is at a zenith. Our shared patients feel her endless compassion, and she is constantly on the quest to deliver exemplary care without ever stopping her own quest for knowledge. She must be your top choice for structural integration. She is certainly mine.
Jessa is a healer. As an ultramarathoner and high performing athlete, she has improved my running stride and power output in just a few sessions. I trust her intuition and her direct yet practical approach to healing. Everything she does is anchored in physiology and flourishes with her gut instinct. If you want to take your game to the next level, this is the move. She establishes the standard for structural integration.
Jessa is a goddamn miracle worker. When I started working with her I realized that what she offered was what I had wanted every other form of bodywork I'd ever gotten to be - but it never was. Deep, transformational, work, with a light sure touch and an encyclopedic knowledge of anatomy and body mechanics. I've never found anyone else like her, and I plan to follow her around no matter where she lives so I never have to.
I saw Fascia Specialist Jessa Zinn for my back pain — and it wasl life changing. Understanding the relationship between body parts bound by fascia has empowered me beyond my back issue too. I started running again, something I’d avoided to spare my back, and I’ve felt more confident than ever, since I have better form to support the mileage.
