What is Myofascial Release?

Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying a gentle sustained pressure into the restricted tissue. The fascial system responds to this sustained low-load pressure by slowly elongating as the ground substance surrounding the fascial tissue increases in fluidity. This is very important as the tensile forces of myofascial restrictions can produce tensile forces of up to 2,000 lbs per square inch, crushing other structures that may have to pass through this area (i.e. muscles, nerves, blood vessels, lymph nodes etc.). Trauma, inflammatory responses, repetitive postures, bracing from stress, surgery, and emotional stress can all produce these restrictions. And while many times we tend to focus our attention on the area that it symptomatic, it is often not the original origin of dysfunction.  

Example: Chronic plantar fasciitis may be caused by a pelvis that is rotated.  

Example: Chronic headaches may be caused by scar tissues restrictions from previous back injury.

Example: Sluggish digestion may be caused by an old C-section scar that has limited intestinal mobility.  


Each myofascial treatment session is performed directly on the skin without the use of oils, creams, or machinery. This enables the therapist to accurately detect fascial restrictions and apply the appropriate amount of sustained pressure to facilitate the release of the tissue.

Who is Appropriate for this Treatment?

Myofascial Release can affect any area of the body that has pain, tightness or decreased range of motion. It also has the potential to affect visceral health, emotional health and bring balance back to the entire system. There are no age restrictions as this is a safe and gentle treatment that does not force the tissue. Even newborns can benefit from this type of work.

Myofascial Release for Animals

Myofascial Release isn't just for people.  Animals, and especially horses respond very well to this gentle form of treatment.  Animals develop restrictions after trauma (physical and emotional), repetitive motions, or surgery just like humans.  Treatment can improve their mood, physical mobility and lessen pain.

Recommendations for Appointments

Always dress in loose fitting clothing or bring shorts, tank top or sports bra. There may be several areas treated during one visit, and it is important to be able to get directly on the skin. Avoid putting on lotions or creams on the skin before an appointment. This makes it difficult to treat the affected area without sliding on the skin.
