MYOFASCIAL RELEASE THERAPY
Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. Our one-on-one therapy sessions are hands-on treatments, during which our therapists use a multitude of techniques and movement therapy to promote independence through education in proper body mechanics and movement, self treatment instruction, enhancement of strength, improved flexibility, and postural and movement awareness.
Myofascial Release sessions are performed directly on skin without oils, creams or machinery. This enables the therapist to accurately detect fascial restrictions and apply the appropriate amount of sustained pressure to facilitate release of the fascia.
FYI: Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures can create myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures that do not show up in many standard tests such as x-rays, CAT scans, etc.
