Tissues, organs, and muscles are wrapped in
intricate layers of connective tissue called fascia.
Normal function of the body depends on this connective
tissue being free of strains or constrictions.
Distortions or restrictions inhibit motion, interfere
with the flow of blood or lymph, and impair normal
neural function. When the body sustains an injury
or trauma of any kind, this protective connective
tissue may be altered. A therapist performing
Myofascial Release works with the patient so that
strains, distortions, and restrictions in the
fascia can unwind or release and thus improve
physiological function and relieve pain. This
technique is very comfortable, yet powerful, and
may engage either restricted or free barriers
depending on the particular situation.
