Myofascial Release is a safe and gentle hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the muscles and fascia to eliminate pain and restore motion. Trauma, inflammatory responses, and surgical procedures create myofascial (muscles and fascia combined) restrictions that can produce substantial pressure on nerve pathways thus causing pain and discomfort.
Myofascial Release is performed directly on the skin without oils, creams or machinery. This enables an accurate detection of fascial restrictions and the application of appropriate amounts of sustained pressure to facilitate release of the fascia.
The body utilizes an immense amount of energy to center and neutralize restriction and pain. Through gentle release and balancing of these restrictions, myofascial release can take the system into deep relaxation, and ultimately free substantial amounts of energy, creating a sense of recovery and well-being.
