Myofascial Release Technique

What is Myofascial Release Technique?

Myofascial Release Technique is a manual (hands-on) therapy that uses light, sustained pressure to treat skeletal muscle immobility and decrease pain. Myofascial release reduces pain by relaxing spastic (tight) muscles and improving blood, oxygen, and lymphatic circulation. The movements of myofascial release treatments can be compared to the gentle stretching that gradually softens and lengthens a piece of taffy. In the same way, myofascial release helps to elongate soft tissue, helping it return to its normal state, ultimately relieving pressure.

What are the benefits of the Myofascial Release Technique?

Improve Range of Motion

Relieves Tension

Improve Circulation

Reduce Pain

Myofascial Release Technique can be beneficial in treating many conditions and is recommended for parts of the body that are strenuously used. Myofascial release can help improve your range of motion and can reduce pain and discomfort associated with the recovery process stemming from injury or overextension. In addition to targeted therapy benefits, myofascial release helps to relieve tension and knots and can help your body to relax overall while improving circulation. For this reason, myofascial release can also be beneficial if you are experiencing chronic headaches.

How does Myofascial Release Technique Work?

Myofascial Release Technique is a hands-on pain management therapy. Depending on your treatment needs, we will massage, knead and gently stretch the muscles and may apply pressure to targeted areas to promote muscle relaxation. We can apply pressure using our hands, elbows, or massage tools like a foam roller. The process is repeated multiple times to the same targeted areas until we can feel that the muscle tension has relaxed.
