Traumas to our body, inflammatory conditions, and surgical procedures cause restrictions in our fascial tissue. What is fascia? Fascia is one continuous sheet of connective tissue that penetrates and interpenetrates every muscle, bone, nerve, artery and vein, as well as, all of our internal organs including the heart, lungs, brain and spinal cord. When there are restrictions in the fascial tissue, it causes you pain, headaches, adhesions, and lessened range of motion. Myofascial Release is a technique that involves applying sustained pressure into the connective tissue where there are restrictions; thus eliminating pain and restoring motion.
Myofascial Release F.A.Q.:
As I was getting my myofascial release I mentioned to the therapist the pain I had been experiencing in my feet when I stepped out of bed in the morning. I didn’t really expect a “cure” at a massage clinic, but the therapist listened carefully to my description of this strange pain in my feet. Within minutes and with just a few presses on my feet, they were pain free and I have not had one moment of foot pain since that session. The staff at Tree of Life are highly skilled and beyond their skill they LISTEN and RESPOND…How often can one find that kind of service today! -Elizabeth
I received a myofascial massage at Tree of Life and it was incredible. Definitely one of the best therapeutic massages I have ever had. From the owner to the office manager, Tree of Life’s staff is welcoming, professional, and full of integrity. – Samantha
