Myofascial Release is a very effective hands-on technique that provides sustained pressure into myofascial restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion...The fascia is a specialized system of the body that has an appearance similar to a spider's web or a sweater...Fascia is very densely woven, covering and interpenetrating every muscle, bone, nerve, artery and vein as well as all of our internal organs including the heart, lungs, brain and spinal cord.  The most interesting aspect of the fascial system is that it is actually one structure that exists from the head to foot without interruption...In the normal healthy state, the fascia has the ability to stretch and move without restriction.  When we experience physical trauma, scarring or inflammation, however, the fascia loses its pliability.  It becomes tight, restricted and a source of tension to the rest of the body.  Trauma, such as a fall, whiplash, surgery or just habitual poor posture over time and repetitive stress injuries has a cumulative effect.  The changes they cause in the fascial system influence comfort and the functioning of our body.  The fascia can exert excessive pressure producing pain or restriction of motion.  They affect our flexibility and stability, and are a determining factor in our ability to withstand stress and strain.
