Myofascial Release

  • Massage Newcastle – Massage Therapists at Chiropractic Plus

Beautiful woman treated with myofascial release massage techniqueMyofascial Release concentrates on the fascia of the muscle. Muscle fascia is the glossy soft tissue which encases and contains each individual muscle and allows each muscle to contract smoothly even adjacent to other muscles. It is denser and more rigid than muscle tissue, and can often inhibit mobility.

Restricted fascia is commonly the result of acute injury and/or overuse injury. The treatment of fascia is different from traditional muscle-focused strokes; it is a slow, deep technique and little oil is used. The treatment aims to elongate the fascial sheet with guided motion and deep, targeted pressure. Restrictions within the fascia of the gluteal muscles are often found to be the cause of restless leg syndrome.

Myofascial Release is often used in conjunction with other types of massage including Remedial Massage, Sports Massage, Deep-Tissue Massage and Trigger-Point Therapy.
