Myofascial Release is a very effective hands on technique that provides sustained pressure into myofascial restrictions to eliminate pain and to restore motion. Through various techniques the practitioner engages and then stretches the fascia until a release is felt. Myofascial Unwinding uses these techniques and others to allow the body to release holding or bracing patterns from the mind/body complex that may be manifesting as trauma.
Fascia is a tough connective tissue that spreads throughout the body in a three dimensional web without interruption. Trauma or inflammation can create a binding down of fascia resulting in excessive pressure on nerves, muscles, blood vessels, osseous structures and/or organs. Trauma, such as a fall, whiplash, surgery or habitual poor posture over time has a cumulative negative effect. Emotional trauma can also cause the same binding down effect on fascia which can lead to physical illness or pain. See www.myofascialrelease.com for more info.
