Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. Essentially a low load (gentle pressure) is applied slowly over the muscle and fascia, allowing shortened tissue to elongate.
Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create myofascial restrictions, which can cause pain and dysfunction anywhere in the body.
The use of myofascial release allows us to look at each patient as a unique individual. Our one-on-one therapy sessions are hands-on treatments during which our therapists use a multitude of myofascial release techniques and movement therapy. We promote independence through education in proper body mechanics and movement, self-treatment instruction, enhancement of strength, improved flexibility, and postural and movement awareness.
Each myofascial release treatment session is performed directly on skin without oils, creams or machinery. This enables the therapist to accurately detect fascial restrictions and apply the appropriate amount of sustained pressure to facilitate release of the fascia.
