I am offering 10 minute Myofascial Release massage for just a fiver. Book a pre or post race massage to release tension in your legs.

What is Myofascial Release? It is a treatment which works to release tension in the muscles and connective tissue. 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 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”.

When muscles contract, they stretch fascia, so when fascia is stretched, it needs releasing. You can release fascia by stretching regularly. Try yoga or pilates, classes offer superb techniques to aid strength and flexibility.
