“Is it the muscle that is tight and restricted or the fascia surrounding the muscle which is prohibiting the muscle to release?”James Chapman
Fascia surrounds, infuses and protects every tissue, tendon, muscle, bone, ligament and organ of the body.
Myofascial release is a highly effective form of structural bodywork which seeks to create good function by undoing fascial restrictions which may have occurred from injury, inflammation, over time from poor postural habits or repetitive motion. Therapists work using slow, steady pressure with minimal oil or lotion, locking into the restricted tissue until release occurs. Myofascial therapists may use subtle or indirect work or deep and direct work, active or passive client movement. Myofascial release creates greater mobility and function, relieving pain, giving new freedom to movement and a sense of ease and space within the body. I have been fortunate to have studied with the worlds leading authorities on Fascia including Tom Myers, James Earls, Til Luchau, Robert Schleip, George Kousaleos and Noah Karrasch.
As well as myofascial release, I am also qualified in sports massage, medical acupuncture, kinesiology taping and spinal manipulation, and use techniques from these disciplines where needed by the client.
