The human body is a ‘Tensegrity structure’ requiring a delicate balance of tensile and compressive forces to hold the entire structure in perfect balance. Tensegrity refers to the forces of tension — muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia — pulling on structure — bones and joints — that keep the body both stable and efficient in mass and movement.
When muscles become too strong or too weak, when ligaments are sprained, or when poor posture is the norm, we lose Tensegrity. This loss is one of the leading causes of sports-related injuries and chronic pain syndromes.
Keph utilizes cutting-edge Tensegrity techniques to release the fascia or connective tissue in a multitude of ways and restore the body back to a healthy, balanced and functioning state.
In a private Tensegrity bodywork session Keph also uses both the Trager release technique of gentle touch and a combination of active and passive movement, and Qigong TuiNa, an ancient form of Chinese massage that specifically targets and releases blockages in the body affecting the fascia, the nervous system, and internal organs.
