Myofascial release is massage with a "listening touch". The fascia is the connective tissue that holds us together.
A 3-dimensional body stocking that envelops each and every structure of the body from the tiniest nerve to the largest bone.
When fascia is restricted this can lead to muscular pain and inhibited movement and circulation. By way of waiting, holding and stretching the fascia a sense of relief from pain and symptoms of various conditions can be achieved.
I have found that myofascial release is very effective in treating all types of injuries and chronic systemic conditions such as fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis.
