We start working deep in the abdomen. Behind the gut as the central organ – within its lymphatic drainage area – we find first a lymphatic stagnation.
Dr. Weiss cultivated the concept of the radixemdema back in 1988 being the central lymphatic stagnation in the dorsal abdomen, which starts to displace the gut. We find a radixedema with 9 out of 10 patients.
Fascial strands proceeding through this stagnated lumbar region become hyoxic and start to contract. We find most disk prolapses and back pain right in this area. Releasing the radixedema in the dorsal abdomen often provides relief for the back.
Scars of the abdomen deteriorate the lymphatic flow additionally … adhesions after appendectomy, cesarean section, hysterectomy, hernia surgery, umbilical hernia or adhesions, piercings must be treated.
With women the stagnation bilds up deep in the pelvis, blocking the lymphatic drainage from the legs. Saddle-block, varicose veins, ancle edema, hip or knee joint problems can occur. Treating with SophiaMatrix means considering the myofascial meridians and thus enabling the connective tissue to restructure.
The central stagnation in the abdomen also influences cranial organs, the diaphragma and the chest. Difficulties in breathing or functional heart disorders can be a consequence. Lifting of the rib cage will lead to muscle and fascial contraction in the neck to support the new posture.
Strain hardening of the fascial tissue of the neck will disturb lymphatic drainage of the head. Consequently the intracranial pressure can increase with less detoxification of toxins of the brain, headache, migraine, Tinnitus or neurological symptoms.
Restructuring adhesions and strain hardening along the myofascial meridians bring relief and can improve those symptoms.
