Fascia is the connective tissue with the role of integrating the fluid relationships between muscles, joints, organs and other structures in the body.
Injury, inflammation, immobility… all these can lead to stagnation, dehydration and sometimes adhesions of our connective tissue. This leads to restriction and torsions to which we can respond with pain or tension. This pain or tension can potentially be far away from the source of the issue due to the imbalance in the architectural relationships of our fascia.
Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective form of treatment that looks at the body with an integral view, understanding the relationships and fascial connections. The treatment involves applying gentle sustained pressure to unleash a change. Restoring fluidity and motion to the dehydrated tissues leads to a sense of space, pain reduction and a fuller integration of free movement throughout the whole body.
