The ELDOA Method: Unlocking Mobility & Improving Posture

These classes will vary depending on the needs of those participating. There will be an intentional goal set for each designated class and will be ztretching changing to continually challenge each individual while encouraging their overall improvements. ELDOAs and Myofascial Stretches are very specific and complex techniques that require strong attention to form and correct progressions.

By attending the classes, you not only receive instruction from a certified instructor but the full hour dedicated to stretching enhances streching many possible benefits including:.

About ELDOA Method

ELDOAs are postural self-normalizing techniques designed for widening the space within a chosen articulation. This is accomplished by creating fascial tension to fix the vertebra below and contraction in extreme range to normalize the vertebra above the targeted disc. For example, it is possible in one minute a day to stretchlng disc compression between T6-T7 or even more specifically at the base of the long arm of the left sacroiliac joint.

It is possible to create more room in a particular articulation with an exact position adapted to each person. ELDOA postures are very specific compared to other techniques. Disc compression existing at any level of the spine can be addressed through a specific ELDOA exercise.


If a client experiences pain because of compression between the 5th lumbar and 1st sacral, the de-coaptation position should target this exact level and not the one above or below. ELDOAs are not limited to just the spine. Lower back pain is an uncomfortable and often debilitating condition that many people deal with on a daily basis. ELDOA exercises, when done on a regular basis, can help offset many of the risk factors that can cause degeneration and herniation of the intervertebral discs.

Myo fascial Stretching is one of the safest and most effective ways to create space and balance in the body. All muscles are wrapped in an aponeurotic sleeve and connected with each other through numerous fasciae.


Everyone knows about muscle stretching; however, it is difficult to stretch a muscle if it is wrapped in a leathery sleeve which does not give.

It is better to consider each muscle as links in chains extending throughout the length of the entire body. The goal of every Myofascial stretch is elvoa put into tension the fascia that encases the muscles in order to normalize the length and function of the fascial chains.

When you do Myofascial stretches, you correct structural imbalances and release tension across the joints which helps to reduce inflammation and sttretching.

The flexibility gains from Myofascial stretches can help improve your joint mobility, and overall health. Myofascial Release has become a popular term sttretching the health industry in recent years. There are many types of massage therapies used but often it is packaged and sold in the form of a simple foam roller or tennis ball to encourage “self” myofascial release.

Foam rolling does have a place in therapy and is a useful tool for potentially alleviating trigger points. In fact, there is a much larger influence on improving the quality of the fascia and that’s by strstching balance to the tensegrity model in which our bodies work.

This is best achieved through the facilitation of the neurological system while creating tensions throughout the fascial chains in order to improve the fascia’s ability to slide and respond both superficially and at the deeper levels. These self normalization techniques restore the functionality as well as the quality of this omnidirectional matrix.


If you have 30 minutes Though very involved, it does provide an incredible up close look at the fascia and how it works in all its complexity. By attending the stretchig, you not only receive instruction from a certified instructor but the full hour dedicated to stretching enhances the many possible benefits including: Myofascial Stretches will correct soft tissue Imbalances throughout your body.

Risk Factors which can eloda to disc herniation: Lifting inappropriately Overweight Sudden pressure Arduous repetitive activities Congenital weakness of the discal tissues Chronic dehydration Sudden trunk rotation or shearing force In the event of stretcuing movement of the vertebral column caused by a job where you are in a constant sitting position, the rear portion of the disc will be compressed and thus weakened.

Tears and swelling of the disc can then occur. If the cells of the disc failed to get proper nutrients — such as oxygen, or glucose — or if the pH level of the disc drops because waste is not being diffused out of the disc and it becomes anaerobicdisc cells would die and stop producing the vital proteoglycan aggregates. The disc loses its water content dehydrates and loses its hydrostatic pressure osmotic pressure.

The inflammatory and degenerative processes in the connecting structures relate to vertebral discs, ligaments, and joints located in the back of the vertebrae. If ligaments start loosening, the entire structure of the column becomes unstable. This produces a misalignment of the vertebrae and an overload of rear joints causing a premature wear out leading to osteoarthritis. Fusion of the vertebrae, whether congenital or from surgery, will increase the requirement of mobility and shock absorption from the joints above or below the fusion, thus increasing the likelihood of damage to the discs and tissues near the fusion.
