Integrated Myofacial Therapy (Myofascial Release)

 In Integrated Myofacial Therapy (Myofascial Release)
78Myofascial Release is used for the release of fascia (connective tissue) which has become stuck, hardened and dehydrated.  Fascia is a three dimensional web that surrounds every bone, muscle, nerve, organ and vessel down to the cellular level from head to toe.

Restrictions can develop in fascia from trauma, poor posture and repetitive training. These restrictions can create pain, swelling, misalignments, poor muscular biomechanics, decreased range of motion, decreased strength and lameness. Restrictions in the fascial system can put up to 2000lbs of pressure per square inch onto bones, ligaments, muscles and organs causing the structures to misalign or become constricted resulting in ineffective muscle usage, poor circulation, build up of toxins, strain and eventually trauma/injury.

Myofascial release can help:

  • chronic pain
  • back ache and pelvic imbalance77
  • scoliosis
  • lordosis and lumbago
