Myofascial Release

Beginning in the womb, a web of tissue called fascia develops, forming the basic structure of the body. This web continues to grow as we age but with injuries, poor posture, and strength imbalances, changes direction binding unrelated sections of the body together. We experience unusual tightness in our hips, our low back, our abdomen. This frequently causes restricted movement and pain which is especially strong at trigger points. We find ourselves using extra energy just performing daily activities. In Myofascial Release, the therapist uses the hands to apply a prolonged force to these tissues. The result is a “release” of restriction and a realigning of fascia. Patients experience an ease in chronic tightness, reduced pain and increased energy.
