Myofascial release comes under the term Remedial massage also but due to its popularity and success in treating a wide range of musculoskeletal problems it has come into a field of its own.
What is Fascia? Fascia is found everywhere in the body, its main component is connective tissue. Fascia can be seen as a full body stocking, connecting everything in the body as a basic explanation.
Myofascial release is the slow unwinding of the fascia through direct and indirect contact made by the therapist upon the client. Through this the client can find to have greater range of movement, less pain, emotional release, parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest) and postural changes.
