What is Myofascial Release Technique? | Viva Health Centre | Halifax and DartmouthFascia is very densely woven connective tissue, covering and interpenetrating every structure of the body. Every part of the body is interconnected, including muscles, bones, nerves, blood and lymph vessels, and vital organs such as the heart, lungs, brain and spinal cord.

An interesting aspect of the fascial system is that it is not just a system of separate coverings; it is actually one structure that exists from head to foot without interruption. In this way you can begin to see that each part of the entire body is connected to every other part by the fascia, like the yarn in a sweater.

The Myofascial Release Technique

The myofascial release technique consists of the slow and gentle application of sustained pressure and supportive movement into the fascial system. Through sensitive touch, the therapist is able to engage the subtle motion and expression of the fascial tissues to facilitate the body’s natural ability to self-correct.

This is a dynamic and transformational process that will soothe your mind, eliminate your pain, and energize your body. Myofascial release plays an integral role in the rehabilitation process due to automobile accidents, sporting injuries, pre- and post-surgical procedures, as well as emotional and mental stress.
