Myofascial Release Bodywork

Myofascial Release

“You cannot receive what you don’t give.
Outflow determines inflow.
Whatever you think the world is withholding from you,
you already have,

but unless you allow it to flow out,
you won’t even know that you have it.”

– Eckhart Tolle

Myofascial Release bodywork is the three-dimensional application of gentle sustained pressure and movement into the fascial system in order to eliminate fascial restrictions and facilitate the emergence of physical and emotional patterns that are no longer relevant or are impeding the healing process.

The fascial system surrounds, infuses with, and has the potential to influence every muscle, bone, nerve, blood vessel, organ, and cell in the body. Fascia also separates, supports, connects and protects everything. This three-dimensional web of connective tissue is alive and ever changing. It is a network for information exchange, influencing and influenced by every structure, system and cell in the body.

A therapist utilizing myofascial release uses the fascial system as a lever to remove pressure from various systems of the body, enhancing the relief of pain and increasing the quality of motion and function. The goal is to return equilibrium to the whole person.

Myofascial Release leads to improvement in the body’s structural integrity. It also seems to reach underlying information from the subconcious mind. This often allows a client to examine the emotional state that was tied to their “emotional anatomy”, and to let go of old feelings or beliefs that no longer serve them. This process opens the door for new growth and change.

The combination of Myofascial Release and Craniosacral Therapy act as a powerful catalyst for reclaiming one’s physical, emotional and spiritual health.

“As I developed this myofascial release approach, it became obvious that the whole body was involved, and just treating a symptom no longer sufficed. The tissue seemed to hold a consciousness of its own. As releases occurred, patients reported memories or emotions emerging that were connected to past events or traumas. As their fascial systems changed and memories or emotions surfaced, patients improved, even though they previously were unresponsive to all forms of traditional care.”  – John F. Barnes P.T.
