Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release is a whole body, hands-on, specialised physical therapy that affects and releases restrictions within the fascial network. A treatment will include a mild and gentle form of stretching that has a profound effect upon the body. Slow gentle pressure allows the body’s tissue to reorganise without force, release physical restrictions and release the body’s unconscious holding and bracing patterns.

Fascia can be thought of as a 3D sweater, when the fascial network is traumatised it is pulled and twisted out of alignment rather like a pull in the sweater. Therefore, if the fascia has tightened it creates bands of tension three dimensionally throughout the body resulting in symptoms distant to the injury. Appropriate localised treatments will produce limited or temporary results.

Fascial restrictions do not show up on CAT scans, MRI’s or X Rays and many people are suffering unresolved physical and emotional pain due to undiagnosed fascial trauma.

Fascinating Fascia – Connection and Communication – A sound bite in words

Fascia, is a 3D continous web of connective tissue that extends uninterrupted from the top of the head to the tip of the toes.  It surrounds, infuses and protects every other tissue, tendon, muscle, bone, ligament and organ of the body, providing cushioning and a supportive mechanism.  It is dynamic and fluid, responding to internal and external forces, with all components in instant and continuous communication.  It has been likened to a liquid crystal matrix capable of both receiving and transmitting information. Within it are microscopic cells which have the ability to retain memory. It could be said that our unconscious mind is not restricted to the brain, but flows freely through the fascial system.

Following physical and emotional trauma and through poor posture, fascia can scar and harden in the affected site and along the tension lines imposed on it. This causes the fascial network to lose its cushioning mechanism and internal structures may become pulled out of alignment. This in turn creates an abnormal pressure, up to 2,000 pounds per square inch, capable of crushing nerves, blood and lymphatic vessels.  The increase of tension and pressure can cause problems for internal organs and extend the effects of stress throughout the body, especially to areas along and around the fascial pull.
