Myofascial release massage helps relieve stress and tension in the body using trigger points.
A myofascial release therapist uses specific trigger points to relieve stress and tension that build up in the fascia and muscles. The fascia is a layer of tissue right beneath our skin that helps protect and contain the organs, bones, and blood. Chronic pain and tension can cause inflammation to this tissue layer, leading to increased pain and tension. Myofascial release therapy uses slow stretches to release areas of tension in the fascia, improve circulation, and relieve stress. This treatment can be used in combination with other holistic healing therapies.
