What is Myofascial Release?
Myofascial Release is a safe and effective hands on technique that provides stretching, compression and sustained pressure to restricted areas of the body. Fascia surrounds and protects all the tendons, muscles and ligaments of the body. Normally, the fascial system is relaxed and wavy in configuration. This provides a cushioning and supportive mechanism allowing us to move safely without restriction or pain.
As a result of activities of daily living, stress, repetitive micotrauma or a major trauma, our muscles and their surrounding fascial covering can become shortened and painful.
Myofascial release therapy aims to relax contracted muscles, improve blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulate the stretch reflex in muscles
