What is Myofascial Release?

Fascia is the medical term for connective tissue.  It's the internal spider web-like system of membranes which surrounds all your body's organs, bone, muscles, skin, etc.  It connects & supports everything in your body.  If the fascia becomes twisted, scarred down, or too tight, it can exert up to 2,000 pounds per square inch of force compressing pain sensitive structures such as nerves, blood vessels, joints, ligaments, & tendons.

how can myofascial release help?

By putting the body's tissues on gentle stretch, a trained practitioner can feel the location of restrictions in fascia.  By moving her hands in the direction of least resistance, she can 'unwind' the blockage & allow better fluid circulation as well as release of restriction on painful, sensitive structures.  This can help restore pain free, normal movement & improve organ functioning.

What have you got to lose?

Myofascial release is very gentle, as are all the other manual therapy techniques Janis uses.  Your body is ALWAYS trying to heal itself.  By working with your body, together we can free your tissues to find balance again.  You deserve to be pain free.  It's how your body was designed to naturally be.
