Never heard of myofascial release? You’re not alone!
Myofascial release is a gentle, hands on therapy that works on the fascia, the connective tissue of the body. Fascia connects every element of the body, from organs to muscle fibres. Restrictions in the fascia can cause pain, stiffness and tension. This is a very gentle but effective therapy, particularly useful for those in chronic pain.
What can you expect from a myofascial release treatment?
After a thorough consultation, including postural assessment and range of movement, you’ll be asked to take off your outer clothes and you’ll be covered up for warmth and modesty with a warm blanket. You might be treated lying down or sitting up. Unlike massage, you might have to change positions during treatment. No oils are used. Gentle, hands on techniques will be used, with each one taking at least a minute and a half. All myofascial techniques are slow and sustained.
