Myofascial Release​

Myofascial Release is a very effective hands-on, therapeutic technique that provides gentle sustained pressure into soft tissue tightness in order to un-bind or un-glue fascial restrictions, eliminating pain at its source.

Fascia is a three dimensional web of tough connective tissue that extends throughout the body, surrounding and permeating every nerve, muscle, blood vessel, bone, and organ, all the way down to the level of your cells.  The myofascial complex is the environment of every cell in your body!  Imagine that! For this reason, when Myofascial release techniques are applied to the body, the results are far-reaching and authentically healing.

Trauma resulting from a fall, accident, surgery, repetitive stress/strain, emotional stress, or habitual poor posture can cause the myofascial tissue to bind, creating a restriction, and eventually resulting in pain and loss of mobility.

Traditional Physical and Massage therapies do not address myofascial restrictions; therefore, it is important to have a skilled Myofascial Therapist on your healthcare team.

Myofascial Release is safe, gentle, and consistently effective.

Tensegrity and the body
Tensegrity is an elision of ‘tension + integrity’. Buckminster Fuller, building on the highly original sculptures of Kenneth Snelson, coined the term, to indicate that the integrity of the structure derived from the balance of tension members, not the compression struts.
