Myofascial Release can reduce trigger points within the fascia, which is connective tissue that surrounds our muscles, bones and organs, to return the fascia to it's flexible, normal state.
Fascia is found throughout our whole body, providing stability and protection to everything that it touches.
Fascia collects scar tissue or knots due to trauma within the muscle. This keeps the fascia from properly doing it's job.
Tension, surgical procedures, and stress, can cause trauma to the fascia. In time, the fascia gets use to the knots. When fascia accepts the fact that the knots are not going anywhere, it starts to repair. When it does, scar tissue is created.
The concept of Myofascial (“myo” which means muscle and “fascia” which means connective tissue) requires an understanding of the fascial system (or connective tissue). The fascia is a specialized system of the body that has an appearance similar to a spider’s web.
The fascial system is not just a system of separate coverings. It is literally one structure that exists throughout the body without interruption.
It also has an important role in supporting our bodies, because it surrounds muscles, but it also attaches to structures. They actually could not provide stability without constant support of the fascia.
This DVD, Beginning Myofascial Release DVD can help explain the role that fascia plays in our bodies, as well as what we can do to prevent "knots' and scar tissue formation. It is a 75-minute instructional DVD that teaches how to free restrictions in the muscles, as well as increase range of motion.
This is a short clip of that DVD:
