Myofascial Release

Deep Tissue Massage using myofascial release techniques, focuses on the deeper layers of the muscles and fascia. It's aim is to "melt and unstick" the fibers of muscles while releasing chronic patterns of tension, using slow firm strokes, using fists, fingers, thumbs elbows and forearms, either by following or going across the muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia.

A technique utilized to make muscle tissue that is bound up, melt, loosen and lengthen. A webbing called fascia can tighten and thicken as a result of poor movement and changes in posture. The longer a movement is constricted, the harder it is to move freely and the body becomes more locked and tight. Myofascial release is a fantastic technique that can get to where the fascia has thickened and tightened. After Myofascial release is implemented, muscles becomes more pliable and looser, allowing for easier movement.
