Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release Therapy Arlington, VA

Fascia is the system of connective tissue fibers that lay just under the surface of our skin that may look like a spider’s web or sweater. Fascia is highly organized in a mesh formulation of tubules filled with water, and its job is to attach, stabilize, enclose and create a compartment to separate muscles and internal organs between each other.

With trauma or post-surgery or dysfunction or irritation, fascia tends to get irritated resulting in increased scar tissue formation and causes restriction in soft tissues underneath them.

Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. It is performed directly on skin without oils, creams or machinery. Which enables the therapist to accurately detect fascial restrictions and apply the appropriate amount of sustained pressure to facilitate release of the fascia.

It helps to improve pain tolerance, range of motion, muscle facilitation.
