myofascial release: improving your odds
for optimal health
Myofascial release is an innovative and highly effective whole-body approach for the evaluation and treatment of pain and dysfunction. Fascia is a connective tissue that spreads throughout the body in a three-dimensional web from head to foot without interruption. The fascia surrounds every tissue of the body down to the cellular level. Therefore, malfunction of the fascial system due to trauma, surgery or inflammation can create a binding down of the fascia, resulting in abnormal pressure on nerves, muscles, bones or organs. Learn how a Myofascial release approach treats the problem not the symptom, can help prevent problems from occurring, and can improve your health and your life!
