Myofascial release therapy


This is a technique that is highly successful and popular especially with people noticing restrictions in their muscles that is affecting their muscles ability to stretch and strengthen. “Myo”mean muscle “fascia”is the connective tissue lying over top of the muscle, when under stress the two can stick together which causes postural tension, stiffness, muscle pain and reduced muscle strength. Myofascial Restrictions develop in the body as a result of poor posture, dehydration, stress, trauma or injury that has caused scarring. This technique slowly yet effectively releases adhesions between muscle and fascia by using firm pressure with little or no lotion/oil. The result is reduced pain, tension and an increase in the muscles ability to stretch and strengthen.
