Myofascial Release: Optimal Relief for Pain and Stiffness

Myofascial Release

When we experience pain it can be difficult, or even impossible, to enjoy just about anything. We all experience it too! Remember that time you tweaked your neck putting on a sweater? How about that constant pain in your lower back from sitting, or those pesky migraines that put you out for the whole day? Myofascial Release can help eliminate pain, stiffness and restricted motion and give your body the room to heal itself and return to functioning properly.

Myofascial Release Can Help:

  • Relieve pain and stress
  • Regain posture and freedom of movement
  • Recover from injury
  • Unwind
  • Increase vitality
  • Restore confidence and abilities

Myofascial Release is a safe, gentle and effective, advanced form of body/mind work that works to release restrictions in the fascial system. Fascia is one continuous three dimensional web of connective tissue that supports and surrounds every muscle, muscle fiber, cell, nerve, blood vessel, and organ of your body. It has the ability to exert 2000 pounds of pressure per square inch, which can put tremendous pressure on pain-sensitive structures and diminish the vital functions of the body when restricted. It can affect the whole body or another part that is seemingly unrelated.

Fascial restrictions do not show up on any diagnostic tests, such as an X-ray, MRI, CAT scan, myelogram, or EMG. And, often, people are only treated for their symptoms without ever finding or treating the underlying cause of these symptoms, which often persist. Myofascial Release can help to address the cause and support each person on a journey to authentic healing. Many people who have exhausted all resources, finding only temporary results within conventional medicine and therapies, discover the support they need from Myofascial Release. There is hope!
