Myofascial Release

Find your balance and heal from traumamyofascial-229x162

It is a very effective hands-on therapeutic approach that eliminates tissue restrictions and impeding emotional patterns.
The fascia (or connective tissue) is a specialized system of the body 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 fascial system is one structure that exists from head to foot without interruption, like a yarn in a sweater, and connects each part of the entire body to every other part. A tension or trauma in one part of the body can affect another part. Developed in the late 1960’s by John Barnes, Myofascial Release works by the manipulation of the fascia that connects and surrounds muscles (Myo –from greek ‘muscle’). A trained therapist will make an assessment analyzing the entire human frame in order to identify structural unbalances and locate the areas of fascial tension where to apply a gentle and sustained pressure.
