Myofascial Release

Myofascial release is derived from the Latin words myo (or muscle) and fascia (or elastic band). It's no wonder many massage therapists and chiropractors liken the stretching of muscles and ligaments to the stretching of a rubber band.

In practice, Myofascial Release is a gentle therapy, consisting of a mixture of light stretching and massage work. During a session, the therapist will apply hands-on massage strokes in order to release tension from the fibrous bands of the muscles, bones, nerves and joints, by unblocking any scar tissue or adhesions due to injury in the muscles and surrounding tissues.
