Myofascial Release Calgary
Restore Range of Motion and Pain Relief
What is Myofascial Release?
Lets understand the word "myofascial" first. The word 'my' means 'muscle'. The word 'fascia' means the 'band' or 'connective soft tissue' that supports your entire body. If you could see connective tissue beneath your skin you would observe that it is fibrous, densely woven, continuously connects and surrounds our internal organs, permeates the entire body from head to toe, and has characteristics that provide cushioning and support to our complete body.
Time, injury, wear and tear, poor posture, stress and other factors can cause this connective tissue to manifest tension, restrictions and imbalance within our bodies. Myofascial Release is a very effective hands-on technique that works to 'release' and rebalance our muscle and connective soft tissue system.
How is the fascia treated?
Erika will first observe your posture and discuss any pains or physical conditions that cause you discomfort or restrict movements. Skill and knowledge base allows her to feel, observe and sense areas of tightness, and by using varied degrees of pressure and tension will help eliminate pain and restore range of motion.
What conditions might warrant Myofascial Release Therapy?
General discomfort, chronic pain, sporting injuries, headache, back pain, whiplash injury, general injury, muscle spasms, restriction of motion, poor posture and specific ailments related to everyday living such as carpal tunnel and neurological dysfunction. Myofascial restrictions can be manipulated to restore range of motion and alleviate pain.
What is the process?
You and Erika will discuss relevant information including any discomforts you have such as pain, injuries, disorders and similar matters. Problems are noted and treatment begins. The goal is to provide safe and effective treatment that encourages your body to restore, realign and balance your myofascial system.
We invite you to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have.
