This technique is used when working with fascia, a connective tissue of the body, as a means of achieving pain relief, restoring function and reducing stress on the joints. It is based on the work of Tom Myers and the Anatomy Trains.

Myofascial Release works through the manipulation of the fascia that connects and surrounds muscles and joints. Because the fascia is body wide, any tension or trauma in one part of the body can affect another area distant from the original site of pain. The fascia responds to the trained touch to release the adverse effects of inflammation, poor postural habits and injury. This technique is used both by massage therapists and physical therapists in the treatment of myofascial pain and dysfunction.
