Myofascial Release is a hands on, full body technique that focuses on releasing restrictions throughout the body. Fascia is the tough connective tissue which runs through the entire body without interruption and creates a three dimensional web. Fascia surrounds and runs through every organ, muscle, bone, blood vessel, and nerve in the body and can affect every function and system in the body. Fascia encases every muscle fiber and the entire group of fibers that create a muscle in the body. Trauma, repetitive stress and the inflammatory process can cause fascia to solidify and shorten, causing restrictions. Fascial restrictions have tensile strength of over 2,000 pounds of pressure per square inch! Myofascial Release helps restore the necessary flexibility within the connective tissue to help the horse return to optimal health and enhance overall performance. Myofascial Release uses sustained, gentle but deep pressure to release restrictions, which allows for elongation of the tissue and reduces overall pull and stress on the fascial system. Myofascial Release treats the cause of the problem, instead of just temporarily relieving symptoms, allowing for permanent results.
