Myofascial Release Massage

Myofascial Release addresses the fascia, or connective tissue of the muscle. When there is tension in the fascia, underlying muscles and the structure of the body are pulled, leading to painful holding patterns in our posture. Myofascial Release uses stretching techniques that travel along the grain of the muscle fibers to lengthen the fascia and help release tension from the underlying muscle tissue. Techniques are also applied against the grain of the muscle fibers to break up and soften scar tissue and adhesions.
  • Opens restricted areas throughout the body
  • Increases range of motion and joint flexibility
  • Relieves muscle pain from chronic injuries
  • Stabilizes joints to prevent future injuries

  • Reduces stress, anxiety and depression
