Myofascial Release

webmyo1Myofascial Release is a gentle form of therapy that produces profound effects throughout the body.

Myofascial Release addresses restrictions in the connective tissue, or fascia, of the body. The fascia is an extremely tough tissue that surrounds every muscle, bone, organ, nerve, and blood vessel, down to the cellular level. The fascial system forms a continuous web throughout the body. Injury to any part of the system can have far-reaching effects on other parts of the body. This helps to explain a client’s seemingly inexplicable combination of pain sources.

A basic tenet of Myofascial Release is that no part of the body is separate from the other.

Fascial restrictions can result from accidents, injuries, repetitive stress situations, surgical or traumatic scarring, and abnormal postures. Any of these traumas can cause the fascial tissue to bind down, exerting abnormal pressures and tensions.
