Myofascial release is a form of soft tissue therapy intended to eliminate pain, increase range of motion, and re-balance the entire body. It does this by using massage techniques to stretch the fascia and release the bonds that exist between the fascia, muscles and bones. Fascia is the connective tissue that connects and covers all muscles, organs, and skeletal structures of the body. Direct myofascial release is sometimes known as deep tissue work. Indirect release applies light pressure and gently stretches the fascia; this allows for increased blood circulation and relief from pain.
This kind of work can release long troublesome chronic aching pain generally in the neck and shoulders. When poor posture, stress and dehydration are a daily occurrence, myofascial restriction can make us feel like there is something terribly wrong. A few massage sessions can bring complete and lasting relief.
