Myofascial Release Therapy
A treatment that is based on working on the fascial system. Fascia is found throughout the body, under the skin, in and around muscles and around the organs of the body. In fact fascia makes up to 80% of a muscle, which massage has very little effect on.
Fascia itself can hold onto any trauma that has been experienced by a person, be it physical or emotional. This can then effect the person by directly influencing facia elsewhere in the body, which can cause pain, tightness, or discomfort.
Myofascial release positively effects the fascia by creating heat in the fascia which allows it to return to its natural length, reducing adhesions and fibrosis. This can reduce pain, often creating a greater sense of freedom and movement in an area.
Most people find the treatment relaxing. It is a dry technique and undertaken without oil or cream. The therapist will often use a variety of techniques including, stretching, traction, rocking and dry massage.
