Fascia is a continuous three-dimensional web of connective tissue that extends uninterrupted from the top of your head to the tip of your toes. It surrounds, invades, and connects every tissue and organ in the body.
A fascial restriction is a point or area in the a system where the fascia has tightened, hardened, or solidified, causing pain and loss of movement.
A myofascial release is a form of manual therapy that varies in intensity and application depending on the needs of the patient at any given moment. A myofascial release therapist is trained to not only treat the area of pain, but to discern and treat the source or sources of the problem allowing the whole body to resume a relaxed, balanced, and pain-free state of wellness.
A thorough biomechanical and postural assessment of the entire body occurs before and during treatment. No lotions or oils are used and should not be applied beforehand. Talking is limited, but communication about your experience is encouraged. Learn to feel your body’s communication with you accurately and deeply. Be prepared to reach an unprecedented state of relaxation
