Rethink and end back, shoulder, body pain. IPATH® is a unique sequence of five transformative restorative poses, practiced while resting on a mat that allows the body to first release superficial soft tissues throughout the whole body. The body is placed on blocks that support essential skeletal points that work with gravity. This revolutionary ‘hands-off” method allows the superficial fascia (soft tissues), that are stuck to organically release layer after layer.  The effect of how our neurological system feeds the mind with information that aids in releasing stress using natural breathwork that over time changes the negative patterns set within the body. Stillness and tranquility are essential to The IPATH®  Method, as each practitioner begins a journey of awareness and observation, in order to continue manipulating and releasing the body as a whole.

 

IPATH® doesn’t treat symptoms, it goes to the root of the reasons for misalignment. The accumulation of habit patterns may cause the body to be in such misalignment that slouching or overcompensated movements may feel “comfortable”. With the IPATH® sequence,  the body realigns into its natural shape creating space passively through gravity, breathwork, and relaxation. The sequence allows deep muscle memory to revert back to natural habit patterns which free joints. After IPATH®, your body should start feeling “comfortable” because of eliminated layers of stress and its most healthy alignment – eliminating pain, distributing weight appropriately, and reducing tension on the spine and joints. 

 

IPATH® is popular because of how good it feels to “let go” of tension. Once layers of the muscles and connective tissues have eased and lengthened, we work on spine lengthening and traction-allowing the body more space that further removes tension.

The body is resting on blocks that support essential skeletal points that work with gravity.
