Fascia is an infinite web of connective tissue that runs throughout your body from head to toe, superficial layers to deep layers that infuse all parts of the body including skin, bones, muscles, blood & lymph vessels, nerves, the brain and internal organs. Fascia is a collagen matrix that surrounds every cell giving the body its form. 

Restrictions can be mild to debilitating often seen as posture changes that can create pain, tight fascia can pull the bones out of optimal alignment, it can also trap blood vessels and nerves that run through it causing decreased circulation, decreased range of motion, pain, numbness and tingling. Fascial restrictions can be as strong as 2,000 pounds per square inch, one way to imagine it is as if the clothes you’re wearing right now shrunk three sizes! Myofascial release is a hands-on treatment for connective tissue restrictions using gentle, sustained pressure to restore motion and relieve pain. Using techniques such as Structural Integration, Myofascial Release and Somatic Unwinding to align and balance the fascia to relieve restrictions and lengthen the body so it can return to its structurally optimal position.
