Myofascial Release

 

Fascial work is done in very slow pace, typically with minimal oil or lotion in order to have a good grip on the tissue.   Since this type of tissue does not have the ability to recoil, the reason for the slow pace is to prevent the fascia from tearing due to sudden changes in the tissue length or the application of outer stress (treatment work).

Typically after a fascial treatment work, your body feels more relaxed, lighter than ever, free from all the tension and restrictions in the tissue.

*Fascia is a connective tissue layer that goes throughout your body from head to toe.  The tissue has a plastic nature, as opposed to elastic, like muscles and tendons, for example.  Once it gets worked on in a treatment, it takes about several months to regenerate and reconstruct its structure, hence the longer lasting effect from this type of structural treatment.
