Myofascial Release is a hands-on technique that involves applying gentle, sustained pressure to release tension in skeletal muscles. These techniques can be used in a remedial context to treat connective tissue fixations, and an integrative context to enhance balance within the human body.
Specific myofascial pain can be effectively treated, relieved and controlled by using Trigger Point Therapy. Through digital compression, this treatment “turns off” the trigger point to remove pain and return muscles to their normal state of flexibility and motor function.
