Myofascial release is a sought after treatment in massage treatment, massage continued education and all services using some form of manual approach. Over the past decade, many anatomical studies have focused on the connective tissues of the human body, specifically the fascia. Anatomists are showing how the body is all connected and how it is not compartmentalized as seen in previous depictions.
Keeping with the school of thought that everything is connected, it is clear that fascial restrictions in one area of the body create symptoms such as pain, loss of range of motion and adhesions in other areas. A much-used analogy is that the fascia can be viewed like a knit or woven fabric; when there is a pull on one end, the entire fabric will start to be pulled to that area. With that understanding, a massage therapist can begin to approach the body as a whole to find out where the initial pull is, allowing for massage treatment where it is affecting the body.
Fascia differs as a tissue type and can be quite dense in areas. It does not seem appropriate to treat it in the same way as highly mobile and easily manipulated tissues such as muscle. Both scientists and health practitioners are beginning to realize that fascia reacts better to a slower, lighter touch. Treating the body this way can benefit massage clients who have plateaued with the use of massage treatments directed at non-fascial tissues.

Denny has been working with the human body for over 20 years and has focused on releasing tension and adhesions in the body in a pain-free way that does not overstimulate the nervous system.
