Myofacial Release - 2001
Fascia is the soft tissue of connective tissue, it provides support and protection for the muscles in our bodies. It can become restricted from overuse, trauma or inactivity, resulting in pain, muscle tension and restricted blood flow. Direct myofascial release can also be referred to as deep tissue work, it engages in the restrictive barrier until release occurs. Elbows, knuckles & stretching may be used to elongate the fascia moving slowly through layers until the deep tissues are reached.
Kali Institute of Massage
Imbalances in muscle tissue and it’s function can result from biomechanical misalignment, misuse or overuse of muscles, injury or disease. Over time, these imbalances become habitual and the tissues “set themselves at plus or minus optimal length and micro adhesions form in the connective tissue to protect the affected area resulting in stiffness, tension and pain.
Myofascial restrictions ultimately exacerbate the imbalance so that even if neurological messages are corrected, the adhesions or “glue” that has built up can prevent new impulses from taking root.
Releases the restricted tissues of the body and “reprograms” the software of the musculoskeletal system in support of optimal biomechanical alignment, neurological innervation and circulation.
