Myofascial release therapy is a type of massage therapy that focuses on releasing the tightness and sensitivity of your myofascial tissues and muscles. Myofascial tissue is strong, fibrous, connective tissue that provides extra protection and support throughout your body. If you're experiencing pain or discomfort in your back, hip, shoulder, or any other soft tissue area of your body, you may benefit from myofascial release therapy. Our licensed therapists provide this effective therapy to ease the tension and lessen your pain.
How Does Myofascial Release Therapy Work?
This type of therapy focuses on massaging the myofascia to feel for tightened muscles and connective tissues. Once a stiff area has been located, light manual pressure is applied to massage and stretch the tissue. After several applications of applied pressure, you will start to notice the pressure and tightness start to release, resulting in pain relief.
In addition to an injury or pain residing in an area with soft tissue, myofascial release therapy treats a variety of conditions that cause you to lose complete flexibility and function of your muscles. These conditions include:
- TMJ Disorder (Temporo-Mandibular Joint)
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Plantar Fasciitis
- And More
As an alternative treatment for localized pain, myofascial release therapy helps to reduce the tension in your tissue and muscle. All of our professional massage therapists are licensed and experienced in this treatment and are dedicated to helping you lead a more active, healthier lifestyle.
