Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release is a form of soft tissue (fascia) therapy. Fascia is a structure of connective tissue that surrounds muscles, groups of muscles, blood vessels, and nerves. It binds some structures together, while permitting others to slide smoothly over each other. Fascia can become tight or restricted which can cause pain and limit motion. Once these limitations are released, the person can experience ease and freedom of motion, comfort at rest, and relaxation.
