In myofascial release therapy, the focus is on the fascial system restoring mobility in the fascia to soften connective tissue allowing it to become more pliable and relieve pain.
Myofascial release massage removes restrictions in the fascia that cause:
- Limited mobility
- Postural distortion
- Poor cellular nutrition
Myofascial release techniques focus on slow horizontal stretching of connective tissue, elongating it to break down restrictions in rigid fascia, decreasing pain and inflammation.
