Myofascial Release is a technique that brings the body back to proper alignment. It is very effective for treating pain and restoring movement in areas of the body that are restricted due to injury, scar tissue from surgery, emotional stress or poor posture. “Fascia” is a network of dense connective tissue that covers every muscle, bone, nerve, blood vessel as well as our internal organs. It is one seamless web that intertwines the entire body. If you think of the fascia like the yarn of a sweater, you can see that a “pull” or tightness in one area can spread to other places in the body. These restrictions can put pressure on sensitive structures as the fascia starts to bind to underlying tissues, causing pain and limited movement. Through gentle and sustained stretching and massage the fascia is lengthened and the body is brought back to proper alignment.
