Fascia is a tissue that connects the body's muscles, organs, and skeletal structures. When stressed, the fascia forfeits its flexibility and it leaves tension and pain in the muscles. Furthermore, when fascia is damaged it becomes scar tissue and scarring only builds in the body and does not realign or smoothen unless a practitioners are able to break up the scarring.
Myofascial-release therapy incorporates specifically guided kneads and facilitated stretches, which relax the body and release that built-up tension. Since the fascia is interconnected, this release has a healing effect throughout the entire body and helps to improve range of motion and flexibility, but most importantly it takes away your pain.
