Myofascial Release Benefits


Myofascial Release... a hands on, whole body approach to healing


What is Fascia?

Fascia is a tough, continuous connective tissue structure within a fluid matrix that extends three dimensionally like a web from the top of your head down to the feet. It is the immediate environment of every organ, system, tendon, nerve, muscle, etc. down to the cellular level, providing support and shape, while maintaining space within and among the structures.


Repetitive stress, trauma, chronic inflammation and injury as well as habitual posturing and surgery can result in the dehydration of the fluidity of the fascial system, and progressive binding down of tissues that normally glide, pulling tightly into regions possible quite distant from the initial area of injury. This impacts function at many levels and causes pain, excessive pressure and range of motion issues on sensitive structures in the body.



Myofascial Release is a skilled application of sustained pressure into these restrictions, leading to a release of the three dimensional barriers within the body, resulting in the true change in the length, elasticity and pliability of the tissues. This helps restore balance and space within the body beyond just the visible structure level, and can effectively remove the "straight-jacket" feeling that so often limits us as we attempt to move, heal rehabilitate and function. Enhanced communication among systems is experienced, with decreased pressure on pain sensitive structures, and an improved transport within the body of energy/information, hormones, and waste products can be experienced. Our natural mobility can be re-established... often resulting in immediate, significant and lasting changes in our pain and problems.
