What is Myofascial Release?

Lets understand the word "myofascial" first. The word 'my' means 'muscle'. The word 'fascia' means the 'band' or 'connective soft tissue' that supports your entire body. If you could see connective tissue beneath your skin you would observe that it is fibrous, densely woven, continuously connects and surrounds our internal organs, permeates the entire body from head to toe, and has characteristics that provide cushioning and support to our complete body.

Time, injury, wear and tear, poor posture, stress and other factors can cause this connective tissue to manifest tension, restrictions and imbalance within our bodies. Myofascial Release is a very effective hands-on technique that works to 'release' and rebalance our muscle and connective soft tissue system..

What conditions might warrant Myofascial Release Therapy?

  • General discomfort
  • Chronic pain
  • Sport injuries
  • Headache
  • Back pain
  • Whiplash injury
  • General injury
  • Muscle spasms
  • Restriction of motion
  • Poor posture and specific ailments related to everyday living
  • Carpal tunnel and neurological dysfunction.

Myofascial restrictions can be manipulated to restore range of motion and alleviate pain. The goal is to provide a safe and effective treatment that encourages your body to restore, balance and realign your myofascial system.
