Digestion Benefits With Block Therapy, Joanne Holt

Block Therapy provides a natural solution for digestive problems

In order to digest properly, the stomach organ needs to be healthy. For the stomach organ to be healthy, it needs to receive the optimal amounts of blood and oxygen flow to support its function. Unfortunately, when we haven’t paid attention to posture and correct breathing this causes a collapse of the rib cage into the core, and the result is the stomach is being compressed which limits blood and oxygen flow.

Digestive problems occur when we lose the space within.

Another factor is that the connective tissue, or fascia, will glue or seal together with an incredible force, making it almost impossible to regain that space that was lost over years of collapse. This collapse also inhibits proper diaphragmatic breathing causing a cooling down of tissue temperature from the lack of mechanical movement that would have otherwise been a constant with the conscious breath. In essence, we freeze in the area and flow to and from cells is sluggish.

Decompress the stomach organ to help solve digestive problems.

Fluid Isometrics Block Therapy is a solution to this problem as working with the Block Buddy and the breath as instructed provides a release and heating of that glued, frozen tissue. This results in a decompression of the stomach organ, which creates more space for blood and oxygen to supply the cells with the required nutrients to fulfill its needs to function optimally.

We can get very caught up in the complexity of the body and how it works, but we can also look at it from the basic, simple perspective that as long as cells are fed and clean, they are healthy and able to do their job. For that to happen, there needs to be enough space in the tissue to allow blood and oxygen to reach their destination. Fluid Isometrics Block Therapy will teach you how to release and melt those restrictions in the tissue that block flow, and how to decompress the organs so they can function with ease.
