Myofascial Release





Myofascial release is a highly specialised technique which focusses on releasing muscle shortness and tightness. It re-organises the body without force to release physical restrictions to enhance mobility and improve structural balance. Specific training is required and can be extensive to attain a high level of competency.

I am one of the first Advanced Clinical Diploma (level 5) holders in the UK, provided by Myofascial Release UK.
 


 



Research has proven that myofascia has the ability to contract and plays a major role in mobility and stability of joints. Following physical and emotional trauma and through poor posture, myofascia scars and hardens causing the fascial network to lose its cushioning mechanisms. Internal structures become pulled out of alignment.

Myofascial release is applied without oil and using gentle but firm pressure to equalise any restrictions. Some clients describe the sensation as 'pins and needles' or 'like removing an old plaster', others may feel nothing. Sensations may be felt in other areas of the body which require attention. Each release takes 3-5 minutes to reach the deep fascial compartments. If you think about it, when you stretch and immediately release an elastic band, it remains the same length. Stretch and hold for 5 minutes, it becomes longer.
