Myofascial Release Therapy Perth and Fascia
Fascia is the tough connective tissue that gives much of the body its shape, similar to the skin of a sausage. It connects every muscle, tendon, ligament, bone, vessel, nerve and organ in our body like a three-dimensional spider web down to the cellular level. It can also store memories of physical and emotional trauma.
During inflammation processes in your body, fascia is affected all the way down to the cellular level. Any form of inflammation will have an impact on fascial structures in your body. Inflammation is usually combined with some form of fluid retention. Dehydration will actually worsen the inflammation process and increase the healing time. To stay well hydrated is therefore essential to assist in the healing process of inflammation and the fascial structures involved. An ongoing inflammatory process in the soft tissue will eventually lead to restrictions in the fascia.
Releasing these restrictions allows us to discharge recurring emotional as well as physical pain – often achieved through a process which is called UNWINDING.
Myofascial Release as a Technique
Physiological mobility, circulation and lymphatic function will improve with increasing pliability of the fascia.
Myofascial Release Therapy Perth is a remedial massage technique which can easily be combined with other massage techniques. I have found that it will enhance the benefits of Lymphatic Drainage and Deep Tissue Massage considerably, therefore I use it in all of my treatment sessions to a certain degree.
