MYOFASCIAL RELEASE

BOOK NOW

Myofascial is a very safe and effective massage therapy technique that uses specific, sustained pressure, elongates the fascia that wraps muscles, and releases anchored tissue and ‘trigger point’ areas to restore mobility and calm areas of pain and stiffness.

Releasing these restrictions promotes increased flexibility and improved blood and lymphatic circulation, freeing muscles to function optimally.

Generally, it is recommended to book 90 minute treatments to achieve the greatest benefit. Specific areas are the focus during the treatment, as well as areas not local to pain felt, however that may be involved.  Clients report an increase in their quality of sleep and greater results in daily and active pursuits.

Myofascial massage therapy is an excellent treatment for areas of injury and surgery, and an effective choice to soothe muscles used during regular daily activity.
