Fascia is the tissue that surrounds and connects all the structures in the body. Think of a web that surrounds and covers the body in one continuous structure. By using techniques specific to myofascial release, it can help with addressing chronic pain as well as injuries and chronic systemic conditions such as chronic fatigue, M.E., rheumatoid arthritis, and those in trauma.
Specialist techniques and approaches to working effectively with the fascia including indirect myofascial release (MFR), direct structural integration approaches, cranial work and visceral manipulation. This enhances results and reduces client pain quickly and easily. This technique is effective on most common pain conditions, emotional trauma and systemic conditions that do not respond to traditional massage approaches.
If a person experiences trauma- physical or emotional - including scarring or inflammation, the fascia loses its pliable nature and becomes restricted, tight and can become stuck to other structures (adhesions)
Poor posture, repetitive movements and stress can cause changes in the fascia. Many people experience pain that isn't muscular but stems from the fascia - until this is released, the pain usually continues, often for years. Restrictions in the fascia can impede our day to day function and our flexibility.
Each session is performed directly on skin without oils, creams or machinery. This enables accurate detection of fascial restrictions and application of the appropriate amount of sustained pressure to facilitate release of the fascia.
