Myofascial Release

Heal Your Pain… Naturally

Myofascial Release is a type of hands-on therapy designed to release tension in the muscles and fascia across the body. This is done by applying gentle and sustained pressure by hand or with specific tools to engage the interconnected parts of the muscles and fascia to alleviate pain.

The fascia is a connective tissue that covers and supports all of your body’s structures including muscles, bones, and nerves.

When the fascia is damaged, it becomes tight and produces pressure on these structures causing pain and restricted flexibility. Damage can be caused by trauma or inflammatory responses and often does not show up on standard medical tests like x-rays leaving people incorrectly diagnosed.
