Fascia is the elastic web of connective tissue that supports and covers your muscles, organs, bones and nerves. It allows proper function of moving structures including joints, tendons and muscles. Fascia can become restricted and loose elasticity from trauma such as accidents, surgery, poor posture, chronic inflammation and overuse. Restrictions in the fascia pull on muscles and other structures, causing tightness, pain, weakness and limited movement.
How does Myofascial Release work?
Myofascial release is a hands on technique that involves applying pressure to the fascia and muscles. It relieves tension and pain by releasing and lengthening the fascia, which allows muscles to return to their correct position, length and function. Myofascial release is very effective as it provides relief from temporary tightness and can also reverse long held patterns of tension for long lasting relief.
Your session will begin with a discussion of your history of injury, pain or limitation and an assessment of your range of motion and posture. Releasing fascia requires a slow approach. The treatment may be quite gentle at first to acquaint you with the technique. Over time, more pressure will be applied to go deeper into the tissue without causing discomfort. You may be asked to participate by breathing deeply as a technique is applied, to change your position, or stretch your body to help the tissues lengthen.
