Dynamic Fascial Response™ is a healing modality created for CMTs from Chula Gemignani’s 20 years of experience. It is a blend of structural therapies and foundational philosophy that induce a ‘dialog’ of activation and response between the practitioner and the fascia/client body. The response from the fascia releases holding patterns in the fascial body and as a result, both physiological and emotional changes occur. This method resources and repurposes the stuck patterns and can heal trauma, relieve pain, improve posture and health and above all promote peace. Dynamic Fascial Response™ blends the relaxing aspects of massage with the structural benefits of bodywork. Active and passive pin and stretch, traction and compression and resistance and release work are used to help improve posture, open range of motion and release wrapped points. The work helps to offer more lasting fluidity, flexibility and ease to your clientele after your session with them.

~Resistance and release for active muscle release at full ROM.
~Slow and safe compression and traction to encourage circulation and mobility of joints.
~Cross fiber friction to tonify muscles
~Acupressure to encourage gastric motility.
~Oil effleurage to activate the parasympathetic nervous system.

“I loved all of the fascia techniques and Chula was very organized.”
“Just a little over a year ago we met and you trained me in a modality that has been nothing but a benefit to me and others.”
“I like that Chula showed us the proper techniques and then allowed us to modify them to our specific style”
“Chula is one of the best teachers I have ever had. This structural work is difficult for me but she made it much easier, was very patient and clear and very easy to pay attention to. Her enthusiasm for the subject was contagious”
“I really appreciate the book and all of the reference material that was provided”
“Chula’s class gave me a well rounded understanding of prenatal massage and postnatal care. Her teaching style is organized, focused, and kind. She will wait until every last person is on the same page before moving on. I will continue to take every class she offers and encourage fellow body workers to do the same!”
