Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release is a therapeutic form of bodywork using a hands-on approach for manipulation and lengthening of fascia. Fascia, the organ of structure, is a web of thin elastic tissue which exists in continuous layers throughout the body. Just beneath the skin, it forms an envelope that wraps the body as a whole. Beneath this outer layer it organizes the muscles into functional groups, wraps each individual muscle, provides support for organs and joints from head to toe, and acts as the body's shock absorber. Due to trauma, injury, or poor posture, these tissues can become short or thick resulting in fascial binding. Myofascial release techniques decrease pain and discomfort by creating mobility and space within the fascial network of the body.(60 MIN)
