The Fascianation Method

The FASCIANATION METHOD is a form of Self Myofascial Release that teaches people how to stimulate and hydrate dry, unhealthy fascia from the bottom of the feet to the base of the skull, which increases circulation, mobility, lymphatic drainage, digestion and elimination, decreases pain, inflammation, and so much more.  This whole body approach helps neutralize imbalances in the body front to back, top to bottom, left to right and inside out.  A special roller called the FASCIANATOR is designed with a specific density to reach the deepest layers of fascia that cannot be reached with a foam roller, and a specific diameter to reach important areas of the body (lymphatic vessels of the groin, axillary area, neck, base of the skull) that large foam rollers cannot reach. 

The FASCIANATION METHOD helps restore the body’s innate ability to heal itself from chronic pain and stiffness before it progresses to dis-function and dis-ease.

BENEFITS of the FASCIANATION METHOD:
Provides tensional relief and balance to alleviate many common ailments such as: general stiffness, flexibility and immobility, plantar fasciitis, knee and/or hip pain, IT Band Syndrome, sciatica, tennis or golfer’s elbow, frozen shoulder, tension and /or migraine headaches, idiopathic neuropathy and so much more.

SIDE EFFECTS OF VARIOUS PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS:
Kidney failure, dizziness, high blood pressure, diarrhea, stiff muscles, irritability, constipation… just to name a few!

A FEW FASCIA FACTS:

  • Fascia is the body’s largest organ and creates our structure and posture.
  • Fascia is made up of water, collagen and cells.
  • Fascia dries up and becomes hard, dry and/or sticky if it isn’t hydrated.
  • Fascia holds onto harmful toxins, inflammatory waste, emotional stress, etc. if it isn’t hydrated, which can create inflammation, disease and cancer.
  • Fascia is springy and resilient when it is hydrated, which allows muscles, joints, organs, nerves, etc. to function properly.

Here's What Clients Have Said...

I just wanted to tell you what an incredible difference your Fascinator Method rolling class has made in my everyday health. I have struggled for some time with lower back and sciatic issues. Constantly being sore, stiff and in frequent pain. My activity level with golf and other physical activities has improved substantially this past six months with your help. Thanks so much and will be sure to keep rolling!

Randy

I have had the privilege of working with Kate McDonald for 15 years in fHiit and Fascination Method. Kate was referred to me when I was looking for a trainer, and I've never looked back. There are so many reasons why Kate has benefited my health: she knows the human body so well, she encourages you to push without getting injured, she has the most varied workouts, she has a great personality, and she cares. Through the years, Kate has met my goals for a healthy lifestyle and kept me accountable. I am lucky to have her train me, and call her my friend.

Julie

One of the best thing about this pandemic has been the zoom fHiit and Fascianation Method classes with Kate, her knowledge of human body is unbelievable in all levels, she is always paying attention to all the people in the class to make sure we do the chosen exercise correctly, her classes are like having your personal trainer at the comfort of your home, including her positive attitude, best thing to start the day, I don’t think I can ever go back to the gym for any classes, I won’t.

The Fascianation Method has changed my approach to fitness. I have focused on putting on weight for athletics, and that has contributed to injuries over the years. I have struggled with intense lower back pain, as well as countless muscle strains and injuries from sports or training. Kate introduced me to The Fascianation Method and it has single handedly changed the game for me. In a lacrosse game, I hurt my hip and hip flexor and could not squat down for a couple weeks. I did the Fascianation Method twice and I was able to squat my body weight on the rack the next day. I am now consistently rolling and the improvements to my day to day life are nothing short of a miracle when it comes to recovery.
Thank you!

Dylan

I have been training with Kate for five years now. I have taken Kate’s indoor and outdoor Boot Camp classes, private training sessions, Fascianation Method rolling classes and online Zoom classes. She is also my running coach, has guided me through several races and continues to help me reach my running goals. With her background in Exercise and Sports Science, she is one of the most knowledgeable trainers I have ever worked with. Kate’s passion for helping people reach their fitness goals, while being mindful of their limitations or injuries, and her infectious positive attitude makes her classes fun, safe and very effective. I would (and do) recommend Kate to anyone looking to enhance their fitness journey.

Brad

I have taken classes from Kate for more years than I can keep track of. She is a fantastic instructor and fitness trainer and whether I am taking a class live and in person or via zoom, Kate never fails to amaze me with how well she monitors how I do the exercises, offering corrections and suggestions to make sure my form is correct, safe, and most effective. She always offers variations to exercises to make sure they work for each individual in her classes. In addition, her classes are different every time I attend, so there is no getting bored with the same thing over and over. She keeps her workouts fresh, fun, challenging and effective, making sure that all muscle groups are worked. I highly recommend Kate for fitness classes, Fascianation Method classes and personal training.
