This is a unique form of massage that targets the fascia, the thin tissue that covers every organ, every muscle and muscle fiber in the body. When muscle fibers are injured, from sports injuries, fibromyalgia, back pain, recurring headaches, etc. the fascia which surrounds it become short and tight. This uneven stress can be transmitted through the fascia to other parts of the body, causing pain and a variety of other symptoms in areas you often wouldn’t expect. Myofascial Release treats these symptoms by releasing the uneven tightness in injured fascia. In other words, Myofascial Release is the therapeutic stretching of the fascia.
