Myofascial Release



What is Myofascial Release?

Myofascial release of the muscles has fast become the key word in Pilates and many other movement modalities. A tight muscle may sometimes be resistant to stretching until its surrounding fascia has been released.

Fascia surrounds every cell in our bodies and with the activities of our daily lives; it is put under strain and tension. When you fall for example, the fascia may get stuck in the position of the fall and if it is never released, will continue to tighten around the tissue until a painful condition is felt.

Why use Myofascial Release Balls and Foam Rollers?

Fascia responds quickly and easily to gentle pressure and breathing techniques. The pressure can be sustained until a release is felt, or a rhythmic rocking action may be employed to generate a release in more stubborn areas.
