Myofascial Release Massage
Myofascial treatment is focused on releasing the connective tissues of the body. Restrictions in this tissue can create pain, reduce the range of motion, decrease circulation and cause nerve impingements. This type of pain is unique from other pain symptoms because this pain stems from trigger points.
Gentle, sustained pressure is used to release adhesions and improve the mobility of the tissue and underlying structures. This work is often done without oils in order for the therapist to accurately feel the tissue release and return to proper alignment.
