If you want your movement practice to decrease aches and pains, make you feel lighter, stronger, more at ease and vibrantly alive, my approach to combining Slings with Foundation Training is for you.
What is it?
The term ‘Slings’ refers to internal connections of muscles and fascia. Instead of thinking of individual muscles, visualise long fascial continuities that connect several muscles in series. These continuities form well-toned slings inside your body that connect your feet to your head and your arms to your trunk. The myofascial continuities, also called Meridians, are based on the Thomas W. Myers’ Anatomy Trains concept.
Slings Myofascial Training is a holistic movement concept that can be incorporated into all body-minded practices, which is why it meshes perfectly with Foundation Training. This elaborate fascia-focused training promotes structural integration, functionality and inside-out wellbeing through conscious movement. The term ‘Slings’ and the real-life application of the concept requires a bit of background knowledge around the intricate nature of fascia and its movement-related qualities, which I think is important to share with you while doing the exercises to really embed the richness of how you can help yourself improve your posture and movement.
How does it work? Foundation Training uses a combination of powerful movements, intentional poses and conscious breathing techniques to decompress the ribcage and lengthen the spine. By sitting at desks and crouching over our handheld devices, we are continually compressing our spine and the surrounding areas, reducing blood flow and depriving our body of oxygen. By using these simple techniques, your breathing capacity increases and oxygen levels rise, reducing brain and body fatigue.
BODY-MINDED, HEALTH-ORIENTED, VERSATILE Fascia-focussed training can be approached in many ways. It can be more fitness-oriented, performance- driven, and specialized, or it can be like Slings: body-minded, health-oriented, and versatile. Neither is right or wrong, they are just different approaches to utilising fascia in movement. Come and join me to feel amazing!

Slings Myofascial / Foundation Training //
Sue Glasgow graduated from the London School of Massage with a distinction in Remedial Massage in 2006. She has been practicing for more over 15 years, having started her business in 2007 at The Siobhan Davies Dance Studio in Central London then Sheen Physiotherapy & Sports Injuries Clinic (2008-18).
Working with Zubin and the team at Sheen Therapy Centre gave Sue a fantastic opportunity to expand her clinical knowledge, teaching and movement practice. Working with a vast range of clients of all abilities from teenagers to octogenarians, presenting many different issues, her practice is continually developing and her priority has always been to deliver the most up-to-date, effective and efficient bodywork treatments to give clients better freedom of movement and freedom from pain.
Sue has an integrated approach to her practice. What this means is she hones all her bodywork skills in deep tissue, sports massage, BodyReading and movement practice to give each and every client a unique experience.
Sue continues to evolve her practice and over the past 2yrs has completed several courses both online and in person with Thomas Myers Anatomy Trains and the Art of Motion Slings Myofascial Training team where the focus is on our myofascial tracks, the connective tissue that holds us together and keeps us upright. Developing her skills in BodyReading, Sue is able to assess your posture and gait which often holds the key to mapping the patterns informing us why you have pain or restricted mobility. Then we can literally shape the change with hands-on treatment and movement strategies.
Clients can book in for a single session to target a specific issue which is absolutely welcome but quite often will realise that the pain is not necessarily the source of the issue. This is why I offer a reduced price 6 session package to be used over a limited period. During this time we work together to map the patterns, discover compensatory patterns and embark on a bodywork journey to create space in your body, ease in your movement and to becoming pain free.
