A relatively new therapy to the UK, Myofascial Release has, over the past few decades, proven to be the most effective form of manual therapy treatment. It is an extraordinary technique that has extraordinary benefits; improvements can be made to all of the following conditions: General Well-Being Pain Relief Injuries (chronic and acute) Sleeping Patterns Emotional Health Allergies The Immune System Digestive System Circulation Where Physiotherapy and regular Massage focus specifically on muscles and Osteopathy and Chiropractic on the skeletal system, Myofascial Release focuses on the release of the body's most flexible yet sturdy tissue; the fascia. This type of connective tissue surrounds each and every muscle and organ in the body. Its continuity and endlessness means that the effect of its restriction can cause imbalance in the joints of the body which, in turn, causes an imbalance on posture. This compromises the body's ability to function at its optimum efficiency and strength. To get the most out of Myofascial Release, we firstly focus on assessing your posture. There is a blue print of the body whereby balance is key. With this in mind, we work to re-establish balance by focusing on releasing key areas of fascia that could be holding the body in imbalanced positions. Myofascial Release lengthens and restores the building blocks position and creates the balance that the body requires. City Therapy practice partner Christian appeared on the Channel M Breakfast show in 2009 to demonstrate the effects of Myofascial Release.
