The Myofascial Release technique is about creating space in the body and structural integration by gently stretching the fascia, utilizing the client’s participation. The client will be asked to move the muscle that is being worked on, which helps to both stretches the fascia of the affected muscle and separate the fascia from the adjoining fascia of the surrounding muscles. The relaxed fascia creates space for the affected muscle releasing tension and allows the affected muscle to slide over the surrounding muscles easefully.
