Myofascial release's distinguishing feature is the sustained pressure and movement into fascial system in order to eliminate fascial restrictions and facilitating the emergence of emotional patterns that are impeding progress. A palpation of the tissue texture of various fascial layers allows the therapist to locate areas of fascial tension. They will then apply gentle pressure in the direction of the restriction.
This technique is an effective approach to the relief of pain due to:
- Cervical issues
- Back issues
- Neurological dysfunction
- Restriction of motion
