The B³ technique may assist in restoring the myofascial tissue (connective tissue) to its optimal length and health.
A muscle’s functional length can be restricted by tight fascia or neuromuscular blockages – reducing its strength, contractile potential and deceleration capacity because it is already resting in a slightly contracted or shortened state.
B³ facilitates a positive change in the state of muscle compression by delivering a manually applied signal pulse into the myofascia. This signal stimulates a reciprocal feedback to the brain, which encourages the muscles and fascia to re-set to their original length. This restoration of myofacial tissue can reduce the pressure exerted onto the pain-sensitive structures (such as nerves and blood vessels), correct body alignment and improve mobility to the joints.
Our perception can render us oblivious to incorrect body posture and mobility patterns and its potentially harmful long-term effects. As long as our body seems to be functioning we do not realise underlying stress factors. We only become aware of such ‘blockages’ once the resulting pain surfaces and we react to feelings of reduced wellness.
Everyday activities that strain our bodies may lead to muscle and postural strain. For example:
