Myofascial release is a technique that works directly on the fascia or connective tissue of the body. Fascia wraps around all muscles and organs of the body, providing support and shape. Through chronic overuse, trauma, surgery, or a sedentary lifestyle, fascia can become extremely tight and fibrous, causing pain and discomfort. Myofascial release is a gentle yet incredibly effective modality for addressing fascial pain. Included under the umbrella for myofascial release are neuromuscular therapy and trigger point work, which address specific issues and pain syndromes relating to fascia.
