What is myofascial
"Myo" refers to muscle, and
"fascia" to the elastic web of connective tissue that spreads throughout
your body and ties it together. Muscles and fascia work together
to support your body and facilitate movement.
Myofascial release is a
hands-on technique involving the application of stretches and pressure
to the fascia and muscles. It relieves tension and pain by
releasing and lengthening the fascia, which allows muscles to return to
their correct position, length and function.
