Myofascial release is a form of massage that targets and reduces pain which is stored up in the tissues which surround various muscles in your body. It is known as Myofascial Pain Disorder and it is a chronic condition which many people struggle with for years. The folks at Downtown Fitness are very well acquainted with this disorder as it hinders many people’s ability to work out properly and enjoy a healthy exercise life.
The origin points of this pain are generally referred to as trigger points, and they are located in different parts of the body for different patients. This means that finding a specific area can be very difficult at times. That’s why starting with a broader massage area while narrowing down these trigger points is a good way to begin this type of therapy.
Once they are located, the myofascial will feel very tight and stiff around the muscles. Steady and consistent kneading will help to release those tensions, providing a feeling of relief and relaxation that many times have not been felt in years by the client.
