What is Myofascial Release? 

Myofascial release is manual massage technique for stretching the fascia with the aim to balance the body.

Fascia is located between the skin and the underlying structure of muscle and bone, it is a seamless web of connective tissue that covers and connects the muscles, organs, and skeletal structures in our body.

Injuries, stress, trauma, and poor posture can cause restriction to fascia. The goal of myofascial release is to release fascia restriction and restore its tissue.

For advice specific to your body’s needs, please ask your remedial massage therapist how often you should have a massage to function optimally.
