Introduction to meditation

What is meditation?

Meditation is an ancient practice of harmonization that has survived multiple cultures and that facilitates the restoration of inspiration and serenity through the daily experience of a fertile active silence that at the same time empties the mind of superfluous and often toxic content.
In addition to this, an infinite number of things result from it鈥.
It is essential and complementary to any therapeutic activity that involves personal growth and development.
It is mental gymnastics that exercises the attention and therefore the 鈥realization鈥. It is an activity related to the focus of attention and consciousness, which allows the person not to be subjected to the fluctuations of emotions, but rather to have more options.

It is based on three pillars

The posture

Sitting in lotus or half-lotus or on a chair, with a straight back, establishing a horizontal base from which the great vertical line (image of a mountain) will rise, body relaxed, shoulders away from the ears, chin slightly tucked in, eyes closed or half-closed, abdomen soft to allow expansion during inhalation, hands in a mudra posture (which better facilitates the emission of alpha waves). Tongue resting on the palate (which produces less saliva). A slight inner smile that denotes benevolence. The physical posture is related to the psychological attitude and attentional stance that the individual adopts.

Breathing

Awareness of breath through sustained attention focus on it.

Attitude

An open mind, neither rejecting nor stimulating thoughts or sensations that come and go. Broad, simultaneous conscious perception of the inside and outside, sharp and intense attention, experience of the here and now, full attention and presence. In each realization of drifting from the present, gently returning time and again to the awareness or witnessing of the present moment.

What does it provide us?

– It accelerates the evolutionary process of the human being because it stimulates self-discovery and progressive awakening.
– It unconditions the reactive mind by bringing awareness to the true roots of actions, being able to better choose what kind of reaction we want to have.
– We manage to stop, go through and see by stopping the automated thinking process based on endless chains of association of ideas.
– We get the deconstruction of old mental paradigms and access to currents of intuition
– We gradually detach our conscience from conflicting emotions in many cases anchored in experiences of the tenderest childhood.

La Fascia

Fascia is the fibrous semi-flexible membrane of connective tissue that unites the distinct components of the human body. Within the fascia, small bags are formed that contain the organs of the human body. Mio means muscle. The Miofascia covers, serves as a support, and separates the muscles of the body. Each muscle fibre is wrapped within Mio-fascia, and furthermore, each muscle is also wrapped in Miofascia. The Miofascial tissue has a dynamic behaviour: under tension it augments its density and relative rigidity, giving the muscle greater structural support. As a result of the augmentation of the density generated by the increase of tension, the body becomes more rigid and less flexible, which in turn produces restriction of movement. Generally, these are the result of misalignments and mechanical-postural or functional imbalances, many of which have emotional roots. Deep Miofascial massage addresses the treatment of chronic pain, and also the treatment of lesser pain caused by this lack of flexibility and movement.

La Fascia

La fascia es la membrana fibrosa semiflexible de tejido conectivo que une las distintas componentes del cuerpo humano. Dentro de la fascia se forman bolsillos que contienen los 贸rganos del cuerpo. Mio significa m煤sculo. La miofascia cubre, sirve de soporte y separa los m煤sculos del cuerpo. Cada fibra muscular est谩 envuelta en miofascia y a su vez cada m煤sculo tambi茅n est谩 envuelto en miofascia.

El tejido miofascial tiene un comportamiento din谩mico: bajo tensi贸n aumenta su densidad y rigidez relativa, d谩ndole al m煤sculo un mayor soporte estructural. Como resultado de este aumento de densidad que se genera al incrementar la tensi贸n bajo la que se encuentra una estructura corporal se puede generar rigidez y falta de flexibilidad que a su vez producen incapacidad de movimiento. Generalmente estas son el resultado de desalineaciones o desequilibrios mec谩nico-posturales y funcionales, muchas de ellas con ra铆ces emocionales. El Masaje del Tejido Profundo tiene como foco principal el tratamiento tanto del dolor cr贸nico como el agudo causado por esta falta de flexibilidad e incapacidad de movimiento.
