Fascia is the connective tissue system which creates a continuous three dimensional web of support through out the body. It is infused and surrounds all parts of the body including skin, muscles, bone, blood and lymph vessels, nerves, brain and internal organs.
Fascia restrictions are in every person and are caused by any trauma small or large, prolonged positioning, habitually physical responses. Healthy fascia should be soft and pliable. Restricted fascia causes pain, because the fascia solidifies and the tissues begin to dehydrate.
During your Myofascial Release session you are asked to wear shorts and loose clothing. Dr. Megan will apply sustained pressure into the areas of fascial restriction. Dr. Megan finds the barrier and waits for the tissue to soften. This softening and opening allows the tissues to rehydrate. You are encouraged to continue home practice using therapy balls received during the session.
Myofascial Release can be beneficial in treating most conditions and will be found on Dr Megan’s website www.restrictions-released.com.
