Fascia is responsible for distributing tension through the body. It envelops every muscle, bone and organ, giving it shape and providing the environment for the nerves and vessels to function. If the fascial system is challenged either by physical and/or emotional trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures, it tends to shorten and solidify, restricting the flow of fluids. Eventually, the affected area becomes dehydrated and starved of nutrients, creating pain and restricting mobility. Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to ease pain, restore motion and improved flexibility.
