Myofascial Release


Good For People Looking For: Relief from restrictions or adhesions (scar tissue) in the tissue.

Myofascial release focuses on engaging and releasing the myofascial tissue or fascia that is restricted. The technique involves loading the fascia with a constant force applied by the hands, forearm or elbow of the therapist until tissue release occurs. This technique seeks changes to the myofascial structures by stretching, elongation of the fascia, or mobilization of adhesions between the fascia and the muscle tissues. The therapist will move slowly into deeper the layers of the fascia until the deep tissues are released.
