Sports Therapy Massage using Myofascial Release Therapy.
What is Myofascial Release Therapy?
It is a treatment which works to release tension in the fascia of the body, in turn releasing the tension around muscles and connective tissue causing spasm. This will allow the muscles to work efficiently and allows chronic patterns of dysfunction to move more freely.
Myofascial Release Therapy has become a very popular technique in the last few years but has been available for hundreds of years!
Myo = muscle Fascia = band
” The Fascia proves itself to be the probable matrix of life & death.” A.T.Still. 1899
Dr Ida Rolf; the first to popularise fascial work. She found the application of very considerable force along the fascial layers resulted in a change on their density and tension. Fascia goes from dense gel state to fluid state.
John.F.Barnes “Health is not only about feeling better but getting better at feeling”.
How does Myofascial Release work?
When muscles contract, they stretch fascia, so when fascia is stretched, it needs releasing. The skin is massaged then with a slow massage technique, the fascia is softened from a tense state to a softened state. The release occurs after passing over the tension area several times.
Relax your muscles and relieve tension.
