Myofascial Release uses gentle sustained pressure into the fascial restrictions within the body. By using a slow and gentle pressure, the fascia then has a chance to elongate and allow for improvement in motion and reduction in pain.
WHAT IS FASCIA?
Myofascial Tissues are thick connective tissues that support your muscles, joints and bones, as well as, providing support for internal organs by keeping them in place. Fascia is often defined as a three- dimensional web that covers our body from head to toe without interruption.
Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create Myofascial restrictions that can produce incredible tensile pressures on pain sensitive structures of the body that do not show up in many of the standard tests (x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.)
A Myofascial release session addresses the "straightjacket" of pressure that causes and perpetuates symptoms, and treats the entire Myofascial mind/body complex eliminating the pressure of the restricted Myofascial system that causes the symptoms.
