Reduce pain & tension
Myofascial Release is a gentle, hands-on technique that reduces myofascial restrictions in soft tissues, mitigating pain, reducing tension, and restoring motion.
“Myo” means muscle.“Fascia” is a continuous, web-like structure of connective tissue that extends without interruption from the top of our head to the tip of our toes, and surrounds all other tissues and organs of the body, including nerves, vessels, muscles, and bone. Fascia plays an important role in the support and function of our bodies allowing every structure to move in relation to each other.
Because fascia is interconnected and continuous in all regions of the body, a scar caused by trauma, inflammation, or surgical procedures may cause tension on structures in far-away areas. Restricted fascia can put pressure on surrounding nerves and pull structures out of alignment. This may result in bizarre pain patterns that appear unrelated to the area of restriction.
