What is myofascial pain?
The fascia is a layer of tissue which surrounds and protects muscles and bones; this layer of tissue is dense, strong and flexible, allowing it to aid in human movement while preventing injury. However, what happens when you sustain an injury? The myofascia tightens and conditions ranging from pain and numbness to headaches and muscle spasms ensue. Another side-effect is poor circulation. Fortunately, we practice a natural method for treating myofascial related pain known as myofascial release.
Myofascial release is a natural modality for reducing pain and improving circulation
The purpose: to break up scar tissue, influencing deep tissue relaxation, alleviate the feeling of tightness from the fascia.
The technique: a hands-on treatment which targets the layer of tissue that covers your muscles and bones known as the fascia.
The outcome: myofascial release reduces muscle spasms and associated pain, improves joint functioning and boosts circulation of oxygenated blood to an injurious region while facilitating the lymph flow away from the same site.
