What is Myofascial THerapy?
Our bodies are complex structures composed of muscles, bones, nerves, and organs, and all are held in place by connective tissue called fascia. When fascia is healthy, it’s smooth and flexible, stretching as you move.
However, illness, stress, and inflammation — or certain events like surgery, a sports injury, or car accident — can cause fascia to tighten and restrict. When this happens, the result is often pain, stiffness, and decreased range of motion.
Myofascial Release is a non-invasive, hands-on technique that applies gentle, sustained pressure to release tension in muscle knots. When this happens, flexibility and strength are restored and pain is eliminated. The body is given the chance to heal itself, naturally.

What is fascia?
Fascia is an essential part of our bodies, and while sometimes overlooked, it is key to our health and wellness.
Fascia is connective tissue that serves as a sleeve to surround every muscle, bone, organ, ligament, and tendon in your body. With that type of stability and support, your body is able to function and move without restriction. However, when tight, fascia can cause limited range of motion and pain.
With the important role that fascia plays in our bodily functions, it’s important to maintain its soft, supple quality.
