Myofascial Release Massage

Myofascial Release is good for addressing larger regions or lines of tightness that don’t respond to other muscle work. Often, groups of muscles and nerves get trapped under adhered connective tissue. Myofascial release helps to address this.

Fascia refers to the layered bands of fibrous connective tissue that wrap and surround all muscles, bones and organs. Inflammation, trauma, repetitive stress and postural imbalances create adhesions and restrictions (“snags”) in fascia. To release myofascial snags, fascia is stretched or bended slowly in a focused area until a change in the tissue is felt. The goal is to warm up irregular fibrotic tissue, then “iron” it out to make it more aligned and flexible.
