Free Myofascial Release Workshop: Learn about Fascia and How to Release Your Pain and Tension with Myofascial Stretching Techniques
Fascia is the tough connective tissue surrounding every cell in your body from head to toe like a three-dimensional spider web. Injury, trauma, inflammation and poor posture cause the fascial system to tighten, putting pressure on nerves, muscles, blood vessels, bones, organs and the brain. This can result in a wide variety of symptoms including pain, restriction of motion, and structural misalignment, impairing both daily functioning and athletic performance.
Myofascial Stretching is a unique self-treatment technique that follows the principles of Myofascial Release (MFR) as developed by John F. Barnes, PT. It results in permanent lengthening of the body’s connective tissue and can dramatically improve health and quality of life. The techniques employ sustained pressure using a small inflated ball and active elongation into restrictions in the fascia. Myofascial Stretching helps with conditions such as: headaches, fibromyalgia, plantar fasciitis, sciatica, scoliosis, neck and back pain, osteoarthritis, sports injuries and more.
