Used by Skilled Massage Therapists

Myofascial Release is a type of massage therapy treatment used to address pain and discomfort in the body that is caused by myofascial restrictions. Myofascial restrictions are the result of tightness, tension, and adhesions in the fascia, the connective tissue that surrounds and supports the muscles, bones, and organs. Myofascial Release is a manual therapy technique that works to relax and stretch the fascia, releasing the tension and restoring the body to its natural state of balance and alignment.

Massage Techniques to Release Fascial Restrictions

The goal of a myofascial release session is to relax and stretch the fascia. This is done using hands on techniques to release the tension and restoring the body to its natural state of balance and alignment.

A skilled massage therapist uses gentle pressure and long, slow strokes to release the restrictive tissues and break up the adhesions. The therapist can use a variety of hands on methods to treat these tissues. These can include unwinding the tissues, stretching, myofascial trigger point therapy and myofascial mobilization to further assist in the release process.

Additional tools such as therapeutic cups or myofascial rollers can also help to apply pressure across larger areas of your body. This can help your therapist treat large areas of restrictions more comfortably and efficiently.
