Fascia is a thin, fibrous and strong connective tissue which performs a number of functions including enveloping and isolating the muscles of the body to provide structural support and protection.

Myofascial Release is performed directly on skin without oils, or creams. This enables the therapist to accurately detect fascial restrictions and apply the appropriate amount of sustained pressure to facilitate release of the fascia. This is done to restore good blood flow to the corresponding tissues, decrease pain, restore motion and promote healing.
