Fascia is a continuous superficial connective tissue that surrounds the muscles, bones, nerves, and organs of our bodies, holding them in place.
When we acquire restrictive points within the fascial tissue layer then myofascial release techniques come into play.
They aim to release fascial tension caused by inflammation, trauma, and/or poor postural habits through:
Gliding, rolling, spreading, and bowing techniques to release tension in the affected fascia.
Manual manipulation of the superficial fascia by use of cross-directional forces. – Various types of stretching, such as simple passive stretching or more specific pin & stretching options.
Myofascial Release is a soft tissue technique that applies gentle pressure to the muscle to facilitate the release of tension and fascial tightness in the soft tissue. The goal is to increase range of motion and mobility and reduce pain.
Myofascial Release is an excellent tool to treat musculoskeletal pain, scar tissue and trigger points.
Myofascial Release is a form of manual therapy that is used as a primary treatment option for a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions such as:
- Muscle spasm and tightness
- Joint stiffness
- Tension headaches
- Low back pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Plantar fasciitis
Myofascial Release is a very gentle therapy that can be used with people who have a wide range of conditions.
