Why Myofascial Release?

Myofascial Release Massage is not your typical massage. While other massages attempt to provide short term relaxation and help you “feel good” at the time of the massage, Myofascial Release aims to address underlying issues in your fascia, a thin and tough connective tissue that wraps most of the structures within your body. Myofascial Release Massage focuses on releasing muscular shortness and tightness in order to provide relief for muscular immobility and pain. This kind of massage relaxes contracted muscules, increases movement and decrease pain. Myofascial and Massage Therapy has been successful in treating the following
