is an Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) technique, used to release fascial restrictions within the body. This technique is used to detect restrictions within the musculoskeletal system altering the body’s normal mechanics.
Técnica Gavilán helps increase range of motion, muscle flexibility, muscle strength and release pain from restricted motion. Gavilán may be performed post operation, before and after exercise, and as a key supplement to any athletes program.
Fascia is the biological fabric that holds our body together. It is found throughout our body and is best visualized as a webbing that weaves its way around our muscles, nerves, ligaments, tendons, bones, arteries, veins, and organs to offer support and assist with transferring forces. This webbing can become bound up or stuck together forming thick tissue masses that limit range of motion, alter biomechanics, and cause pain.
At Catalyst, we like to describe fascia as a sponge. When a sponge is dry, it’s brittle and stiff. Through Gavilan technique, we can break down the adhesions in the tissue and restore fluid channels that allow for springy resiliancy. This fluid nature is essential to restore full muscle function and properly disperse the forces traveling through the systems of our body as we move in life.
