What is Myofascial Release?

Myofascial Release is generally an extremely mild and gentle form of stretching that has profound effect upon the body tissues. It allows for treatment of the entire body. There is a barrier that is engaged, but not forced. It is held for 2-5 minutes. This allows for a true release to occur. Your body is not forced or lead and we do not interpret what you are feeling, because each person's experience is unique. Learn more with Myofascial Release Massage Therapy in Homewood.

What is fascia?

The fascial system is a 3-dimensional web that connects and surrounds every system and cell in the body. It can become a straight jacket throughout the body that creates a crushing force which decreases function, increases pain, and decreases overall health. 

Through trauma and repetitive motion or positioning (lifting or sitting all day) restriction can form in the fascial system.  These restrictions can have the force of up to 2,000 pounds per square inch that can literally crush any of the vital structures that are near it. Since the fascial system runs throughout your entire body, these restrictions can cause pain anywhere in the body and can compromise any system. JFBMFR can increase overall health all the way down to the cellular level.
