Myofascial Release is a modality that focuses on the fascial system. The fascial system supports and protects nerves and blood vessels, as well as the muscles, vertebras and bones. It is like a glove that encapsulates the whole muscular system. A fascial restriction can result from a physical trauma or injury, which causes tissues to tighten, creating pain and discomfort. A fascial constriction can influence entire areas of the human body.
