Yoga Vs. Block Therapy, Joanne Holt

Approaching tissue from a different perspective...

Yoga allows us to access the available tissue and keep it open and spacious. Block Therapy goes further as it releases the tissue that has adhered to bone, thereby granting you more available tissue to work with.

This incredible seal requires heating and oxygenation at the root in order to release and become available for our use. Yoga alone doesn’t get deep enough through the layers of tissue to grant this depth of freedom in the body. In order to affect the tissue to the depth of the bone, the tool needs to be similar in density to bone. This is why the Block Buddy, which is used in block therapy, is made from wood.
