Myofascial Release is an effective hands-on, oil-free modality that decreases tightness and pressure of the tissue surrounding the problematic area. This technique works by applying a gentle, sustained pressure directly or indirectly to the affected site. The application of slow, sustained pressure allows the facilitation of the fascia to elongate and unwind. The result is restored mobility, proper tissue hydration and reduced soft tissue pain.
This is a gentle, non-invasive manual technique that has a powerful effect on the body.
