Myofascial Release Massage in Crystal Palace, Upper Norwood, South East London
Myofascial release is a soft tissue therapy used to treat deep muscle tension and pain by relaxing the fascia.
The fascia consists of all the fibrous bands surrounding the muscles, ligaments, and tendons.
This massage requires very firm pressure with the aim of stretching and elongating deep muscle tissue to increase circulation and range of motion. Your therapist may work to the point of pain, possibly using elbows or fists for extra deep, targeted work.
The benefits of Myofascial Release Massage include:
- relief of pain caused by muscular tension
- relaxation of tense muscles
- increased circulation promoting natural healing
It is also believed to help break up scar tissue, heal sports injuries, and to reduce chronic pain (e.g. lower back pain caused by sitting too much).
By releasing myofascial restrictions, your body's natural alignment and posture can improve, which can is often the root-cause of tension and pain.
