Myofascial Release is an osteopathic technique that is specifically used to address the connective tissue matrix of the body. This therapy addresses the connective tissue restrictions anywhere in the body. This gentle hands on therapy re-establishes the slide and glide quality of connective tissue which may have been lost through trauma, surgical scarring, chronic repetitive movements or sustained poor posture.

This therapy is ideally suited for those with chronic pain, acute injury or surgery recovery, repetitive strain presentations and more. The benefits are reduced pain, increased freedom of movement and a rebalance of musculoskeletal function.

Once the site of treatment has been ascertained, the therapist with place one hand on top of your body and one underneath at the location of dysfunction. A gentle ‘unwinding’ will occur as the tension patterns are released. You as the client may perceive heat as the energy of the tension is let go, decrease pain and more. This therapy works well with Strain-Counterstrain, Neural Tissue Tension Technique and Muscle Energy.
