Fascia is the connective tissue that acts as a network through the entire body. It covers every structure it surrounds (muscle, bone, blood vessels, brain, spinal cord etc.) are all covered by this tissue. When any strain is put on this area of the body- pain, poor circulation, muscle tension, and possible injury occurs.
Myofascial Release is a bodywork technique that uses a series of stretches, pressure, and massage to release dysfunction and restore mobility throughout the body.
Deep Neuromuscular Therapy
Trigger points are sensitive areas of soft tissue that act as the body's nervous system response to trauma. (Trauma-overuse, poor diet, stress etc.) Many times these areas are painful and refer pain to other areas of the body, especially when pressure is applied.
Numbness, tingling, weakness, and lack of range of motion are other symptoms.
Neuromuscular Therapy is a manual therapy that interrupts nerve impulses to the spinal cord, reducing the intensity of nervous activity within the tissue and forcing out toxins that have accumulated.
This results in:
Increased range of motion
Strength and vitality
