What Is Myofascial Release?

Myofascial release is an alternative medicine therapy that treats skeletal muscle immobility and pain by relaxing contracted muscles, improving blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulating the stretch reflex in muscles.

Fascia is a thin, tough, elastic type of connective tissue that wraps most structures within the human body, including muscle. Fascia supports and protects these structures. Osteopathic theory proposes that this soft tissue can become restricted due to overuse, trauma, infectious agents, or inactivity, often resulting in pain, muscle tension, and diminished blood flow.

Myofascial Release counters the above issues by relaxing the fascia and bringing the body gently back into balance.

Who Can Benefit From Myofascial Release?

Anyone looking for greater range of motion, flexibility and balance may benefit from Myofascial Release Therapy. Those in physical pain may also find relief from Myofascial Release treatments and release physical trauma.
