Myofascial release

Myofascial release is a very gentle and slow technique which is ideal for those suffering a great deal of pain. Fascia is wrapped around everything within the body – bones, muscles, organs, everything, and it is like one giant elastic band. Its job is to protect the body by tightening up but unfortunately does not relax again, therefore it can cause pressure and specifically pain as it compresses areas within the body. The theory behind the technique is that as it reacts to protect, it must be treated slowly with little pressure to avoid stimulating the fascia further. 

The therapists’ hands are placed on an area, typically the session is started across the shoulder blades, with soft pressure. The fascia will begin to release and as it does the therapists’ hands will slowly move across the skin. The client may experience tingling or a sense of relaxation as tension eases. There is no pain experienced during this technique and as a result, it can be very beneficial to those suffering from fibromyalgia or chronic pain.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are you not sure whether a myofascial release massage is for you? Maybe we can help with some frequently asked questions. 

Myofascial release is used in the treatment of myofascial pain syndromes.

 A myofascial pain disorder is characterised by tightness and sensitivity in your myofascial tissues. Your body's muscles are supported by these tissues.

In order to determine whether your myofascia is stiff or tight, your therapist will massage it gently. The myofascia should feel pliable and elastic in normal conditions. 

In order to loosen the stiff areas, the therapist will apply light manual pressure while massaging and stretching them. 

By releasing pressure and tightness, the therapist helps the tissue and supportive sheath. 

In order to fully release tension at the trigger point, the process is repeated several times until the therapist feels it has been released.

  Each session is an hour long.
