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.
The fascia is a 3D web that connects and supports the whole body. It wraps around every organ like cling film, it provides structural integrity and balance.
Fascia can become ‘stuck’ by physical or emotional trauma, surgery, scar tissue, overuse as in repetitive strain, or improper nutrition and hydration.
Where there is a fascia restriction there could be pain elsewhere in the body, due to it being connected. This is one reason for referred pain.
Myofascial Release Therapy, like many therapies, promotes the philosophy that the mind and body work together to maintain health. This supports the understanding that the mind and body are one and the same.
