From May 2011 Myofascial release therapy will be available at Massage4Life.

What is Myofascial Release ?

The 'fascia' surrounds all of the body's structures. The superficial layer wraps the whole body from head to toe. The 'myofascia' is the fibrous connective tissue which envelops muscles.

A blend of stretching and massage, Myofascial Release Therapy uses hands-on manipulation of the entire body to promote healing, release and pain relief.

The therapy is based on the idea that poor posture, physical injury, illness and emotional stress can throw the body out of alignment and cause it's intricate web of fascia to become tight and constricted.

The skillful use of the hands in Myofascial Release Therapy is said to release disruptions in this fascial network that links every organ and tissue in the body with every other part.

Pressure on the bones, muscles, joints and nerves is relieved in the process, and balance is restored.

The release of tension once the body has responded to the massage therapy allows more functional flexibility and mobility of the muscles, fascia and associated structures.
