Myofascial release is a hands-on approach using a variety of techniques to identify and treat fascial restrictions in the body and help return individuals to optimal health. Fascia is a strong connective tissue that supports and surrounds the muscles and other soft tissues in the body. Fascia is composed of collagen, elastin, and polysaccharide gel complex. This tissue can normally stretch and move freely as the body moves. However with trauma, repetitive stress, surgery, or inflammatory issues the tissue can become tight and restricted. These restrictions can lead to pain, abnormal movement and posture.
