This technique aims to release the scapular belt while in a supine position, meaning the position of lying face up. We don’t physically see the scapulae (a.k.a.- shoulder blades), however its fascia wraps all around the thoracic cage, like a belt around the waist.

For those who have a rounded posture and pain between the shoulder blades (almost everyone), this technique will help soothe those areas in a non-invasive approach. Let’s watch...

  • Promotes a transverse plane release.

  • Place the top hand on the thoracic inlet (see image).

  • Place the bottom hand at approximately T1, directly under the top hand to be able to create a fascial compression between both hands.

  • Allow for induction.

  • What is the barrier of depth also known as?

  • Follow the line of ease, which is the favorable approach in fascia therapy (as opposed to other types of massage therapy which demand more effort).

  • Oscillations are performed on a fascial level only and range in intensities, from intentional to deep transversal frictions.

  • Don’t forget the back hand!

  • Once the fascia is less taut, begin to slow down.

  • Always come back to center, lighten the compression between both hands, take away the bottom hand first, then followed by the top hand, slowly.
