Have you always wondered what Myofascial Release is?  Let’s break it down in simple terms and show you why it’s an integral part of our bodywork sessions at WholeFrog® and why we love it for making sure you Feel Good Now!

Myofascial Release Moorpark

Myofascial Release is a special technique focusing on fascia, a complex web of connective tissue that intertwines and supports muscles, bones, and organs in the body. This technique involves applying gentle and sustained pressure to the myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.

This practice is deeply rooted in the belief that these tissues can become tight, restricted, or injured, causing discomfort and limiting motion.

This aids in restoring optimal blood flow and flexibility while reducing pain and improving overall mobility. By addressing these restrictions in the fascia, our approach aims to not only alleviate immediate discomfort but also address the root causes of chronic pain, allowing our clients to experience lasting relief and enhanced body function.
