Myofascial Release Therapy is another effective, gentle form of hands-on, soft tissue, therapeutic bodywork that concentrates on the fascia.
Subtle stretching movements with a light pressure
This allows the fascia to restore space and glide-ability in the body. Myofascial Release is performed directly on the skin and does not use manipulation, adjustments, equipment, oils or lotions.
‘Myo’ means muscle and ‘fascia’ means band. Fascia surrounds and protects every other tissue, tendon, muscle, ligament and organ of the body. It helps to cushion and support us to move safely without restriction or pain. Physical and/or emotional trauma, inflammatory responses and/or surgical procedures create restrictions and pressure that can cause this network to lose this structure which affects nerves, blood and lymphatic vessels and can cause pain.
Myofascial Release can alleviate pain, decrease tension or tightness and restore normal sensation and movement
With the use of Myofascial Release we take a whole body approach. We don’t just work on the injured area.
