Understanding the Fascial System
Myofascial release is one commonly used technique at Body Resonance. It is a gentle, yet very effective hands-on technique that involves sustained pressures into the body's connective tissue or "fascia," promoting a more healthful mind-body awareness. MFR involves the stretching or elongation of the body's tissues, allowing for restrictions to open, for the elimination of pain, and for restoration of motion.
Fascia is a continuous connective tissue that runs from head to toe, and its significance is often overlooked; it resembles an uninterrupted, three dimensional web that surrounds every organ, muscle, nerve, blood vessel, and cell of your entire body, thus allowing your body to retain its current form without collapsing. Under normal circumstances, it should allow for motion to occur fluidly at each joint in the body. The body's fascia tends to solidify with inflammation, disease, any emotional or physical trauma such as having a fall, being involved in a motor vehicle accident, giving birth, or undergoing any surgical procedure to name a few. The aforementioned can create restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures that do not show up in standard tests such as X-rays, MRIs, CAT scans, and EMGs.
