Fascia is a connective tissue that runs throughout our bodies, enveloping muscle groups like a “body stocking”. This connective tissue has two main fibers: collagen, which helps give fascia its tensile strength, and elastin, which allows the fascia to stretch and spring back into shape.It is helpful to imagine that the collagen fibers are a lot like double sided sticky tape; so when our muscles begin to tighten up, or inflammation occurs around an injury, the collagen fibers begin to stick to themselves. This creates adhesions in the fascia that may begin to affect our structural patterns and restrict our range of motion.
Myofascial release is a hands-on technique that uses gentle pressure and stretching to affect the connective tissues surrounding muscles. It is easily incorporated into Deep Tissue and Trigger Point massages.
