Myofascial Release


What is Myofascial Release?

Myofascial Release is intense and rewarding. I look forward to helping people get better and seeing the changes that it can promote. Unfortunately, not many people are aware of its many benefits, so they don’t realize that this kind of massage is what they need. Below I’ve explained the facts about Myofascial Release so that you can determine if it is what you’ve been looking for.


3 Facts About…Myofascial Release Massage

1. Myofascial Release Massage is a successful therapeutic method to work underlying muscles and get at the root of the issue.

2. When a person has an injury or suffers from a condition, often the muscles surrounding it are weakened or compromised. Myofascial Release works on those muscles to increase strength and range and ease of motion. For example, asthma sufferers tend to take short, shallow breaths; Myofascial Release helps soften up the muscles in the back and chest to allow for fuller, deeper breaths.

3. Myofascial Release Massage is often used in post-orthopedic surgery situations to help patients get range of motion back and to help the surrounding muscles recover from the stress. Usually, this is most effective six weeks after surgery, and it helps to break up scar tissue, allowing for quicker recovery and healing. Of course, you should always consult with your doctor for anything post surgery.
