What is Myofascial Release?
Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that
involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.
When pain is caused by myofascial tightness within the fascial system (the web of connective tissue that spreads throughout the body and surrounds every muscle, bone, nerve blood vessel, and organ to the cellular level) the diagnosis is more difficult, as fascia restrictions do not show up on MRI scans or X-rays. Yet, those restrictions can play a significant role in creating pain and malfunction in the structure of the spine, extremities and organs.
Each Myofascial Release Treatment session is performed directly on skin
without oils, creams or machinery. This enables the therapist to accurately
detect fascial restrictions and apply the appropriate amount of sustained
pressure to facilitate release of the fascia.
