MYOFASCIAL RELEASE TECHNIQUE
Myofascial release technique is a manual therapy practice used for the rehabilitation of both joint and injured tissue as well as to assist sore, inflamed, stiff, and tight muscles, resulting from general exercise. All movement occurs around the line of gravity and it is intricately linked to a full recovery, allowing for a return to a healthy prior level of functioning as well as lead to increased flexibility and limberness which are characteristic of increased strength, speed, and power. Passive and active motion are incorporated in order to decrease healing time and restore muscle health in order to be able to return you to a prior level of functional movement and to your preferred activity or sport, resulting in raising the level of your performance, quicker.
Our movements cannot be segmented and limited to one joint or area of our bodies. Our bodies are built to move and support our intentional actions. The same goes for the healing process. An injury to the foot will manifest in your spine, head, and jaw, given enough time. This principle is most readily understood in our spinal columns. An injury to the L3-S1 area will reverberate into the pelvic area as well as travel down our leg into our feet, changing the way we walk and shift in space. At the same time, it will travel up to, and into, our skull and jaw, changing the mechanics of the shoulders and neck.
Our bodies ensure we move, play, dance, jump, walk, and run. It should be understood that our bodies need to be given the time to integrate both therapeutic activities and exercises as well as repair and restore the functional structure of our body's tissues.
The Myofascial Release Technique integrates the refined practice of blending multiple body work disciplines, ranging from reflexology, traditional massage, Gua Sha, Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization, and trigger point release, to provide a uniquely comprehensive approach to treating and healing your muscle tissue.
