Myofascial Release

Safe natural therapy to heal illness and improve well-being

Myofascial release is a specialized type of massage or manual therapy that works with the fascia and trigger points. Fascia is connective tissue that surrounds muscles, and trigger points are sensitive nodules or “knots” in a muscle that can refer pain and restrict blood flow. These sensitive areas might be in a different place than where you feel the pain the most. For example, a tight area in the fascia in the upper back may be affecting the neck muscles and lead to headache. You might receive this treatment in conjunction with an acupuncture treatment for certain musculoskeletal conditions.
