The fascia is a tough connective tissue that makes up a three dimensional web from your head to your toes. This connective tissue surrounds every muscle, fiber, bone, nerve, and blood vessel, as well as all of our internal organs including the heart, lungs, brain and spinal cord. The fascia is a specialized system of the body which has an appearance similar to a spider's web or a wool sweater. It is very densely woven and interpenetrates every structure of the body. It is an uninterrupted structure that connects every part of your body to every other body part. Just as a pull in the yarn of a sweater distorts the whole sweater, a fascial restriction in one area of your body can adversely affect another part of the body some distance away. It is all connected.

Tension in the fascia can apply up to 2,000 lbs of pressure per square inch producing pain, headaches and restriction of motion.

Fascia plays an important role in the support and structure of our bodies. It surrounds and attaches to all the structures within the body, functioning like the guide wires used to hold a tent up. The bones are actually passive structures in the support of our bodies. They would not be able to provide the stability that they do without the constant pull of the fascia upon them.

In the normal healthy state, the fascia is relaxed and wavy in configuration. It has the ability to stretch and move without restriction. When we experience trauma, inflammation, or habitual poor posture, the fascia becomes looses its flexibility and becomes very tight and restricted. Dehydration can also play a role in loss of flexibility of the fascia. Tension in the fascia can apply up to 2,000 lbs of pressure per square inch producing pain, headaches and restriction of motion. All of the standard medical tests such as Cat Scans, MRI's, X-rays, Myelograms, etc, do not show fascial restrictions and so it is thought that a large percentage of people suffering from pain, headaches and lack of motion may be having fascial problems but most are going undiagnosed.

Myofascial Release techniques are then applied to decrease the fascial restrictions and restore motion, so that you feel less pain and have a greater ease of physical functioning. The therapist uses their hands to administer Myofascial Release. It is safe, non-traumatic and effective treatment. It is based on the application of gentle forces in a specified direction, for a specified length of time. With this technique, a release in the restricted portion of the fascia will occur and positive permanent structural change will result. By working with the fascia, MFR is able to unlock the holding patterns that cause chronic pain, and restore function, flexibility, and strength.
