Myofascial Release is soft tissue therapy used to treat muscle and soft tissue dysfunction, and the resulting pain and restriction of motion. The skin, fascia and muscles are manipulated with very specific massage techniques. Firm broad strokes are used to release bindings and adhesions in the fascia and connective tissue between the skin and muscle tissue. This therapy promotes greater flexibility, increased circulation and range of motion. It is often used to relieve neck pain, back pain, headaches, chronic pain and fibromyalgia.
