Myofascial: The What and Why behind another favorite of mine

Updated: Oct 29, 2022

Happy December to you all!

Christmas is almost here! More food, family, and fun - what more could you ask for? (Maybe an extra hour of sleep here or there... but I guess that's what daylight savings is for!)

I have been elbow deep shadowing another class at Body Wisdom: Myofascial Release.

This type of massage is INCREDIBLE for chronic issues, scars, frozen shoulder, mobility, range of motion, headaches, carpal tunnel, neck pain, hips, feet, quads, hamstrings, hands, arms, TMJ or jaw pain, or really anything.

Have you ever noticed when someone takes off their watch and they have an indent from where it has been strapped for the last decade? This also occurs in the shoulders of women who wear tight bras (or the rib cage for that matter), as well as in the hips from belts, or in the ankles from some socks or shoes. These are the more obvious signs of fascial restriction, but restrictions can happen anywhere from anything over the course of time.

Myofascial isn't the normal kind of massage, but you have probably experienced it at some point if you have had a session with me. This modality targets the fascial tissue, or the membrane that surrounds every muscle and organ in your body allowing them to move with ease. It is a much lighter technique that can end up very deep into muscles and tissue once the body allows it. When fascial tissue gets stuck, you might find yourself with pain, discomfort, or decreased range of motion. Myofascial is a great method of massage to help "fix" chronic issues or aid in the proper healing of newer ailments.

What questions do you have? Let me know at your next appointment or send me a message ahead of time - I love helping people feel their absolute best and myofascial is a fantastic way to get there.

I hope you all had a wonderful turkey day and I hope you have a great start to the last month of the year!
