Myofascial Release Therapy
Myofascial Release promotes flexibility, balance and relaxation. The technique is especially effective for relieving stiff neck, chronic headaches, plantar fascitis, and low back or shoulder pain. It is also used to reduce the discomforts of fibromyalgia, arthritis and temporomandibular joint dysfunction. In addition, myofascial release can help repair old injuries by increasing the pliability of scar tissue in muscles and tendons.
Myofascial release is similar to a massage, however, the technique is different. During a myofascial release session, sustained pressure is used to stretch and lengthen the fascia (tissue). It is common to experience aches and pains for about a day after the session, but most people experience immediate relief. The session may also leave you feeling relaxed or tired.
How often you get myofascial release depends on your condition. Some chronic conditions may require sessions multiple times a week over three to four months. Other conditions may require less sessions.
