Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release is a hands-on therapy focusing on soft tissue dysfunction, pain and tension. The treatment involves gentle sustained pressure on dry skin to allow the fascia to elongate and restore itself to a healthy position.

Fascia is entwined through out the body and runs without interruption from head to toe like a spider's web, penetrating every muscle, bone, artery, vein, nerve and internal organ.  In its normal healthy state fascia is relaxed.  However, if the body experiences any kind of trauma either through poor postural habits, surgery, physical or emotional trauma, inflammation or scarring, then the fascia will loose its pliability and can become hard, dehydrated and stuck.  This in turn causes pain that often can not be relieved by a 'normal' massage.

Myofascial Release Therapy works with the tissue to gradually open restrictions: improving circulation and promoting healing.  Chronically restricted tissue can become retrained and the pain diminished.  During the treatment you will feel relaxed and will feel 'freer' and/or 'lighter' after the treatment.  The following are a few of the conditions that respond extremely well to Myofascial Release:

  • * Back Pain
