Myofascial Release Melbourne

A1 Myotherapy we offer myofascial release in Melbourne. Myofascial release is a safe and effective treatment to balance the body through the right stretching of the fascia. The Fascia is a continuous network of connective tissues found between the skin and the structure of muscle and bones underneath. It covers and connects the organs, muscles, and the body’s skeletal system. 

Is myofascial release right for me?

As a hands-on technique, myofascial treatment is ideal for patients that have just lost flexibility or function due to an injury, or those are experiencing continuous pains in the hip, shoulder, back, or other areas with soft tissue. Our myofascial release in Melbourne is also used in treating migraine headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, perceived fibromyalgia, or Temporo-Mandibular Joint (TMJ) disorder.

Common symptoms shown by patients due for myofascial release include:

    Back pain, headache, or pains in any part of the body.

    Feeling of intense pressure on joints and muscles, which leads to pains.

    Tissues getting tight, thus obstructing motion or causing misalignment; such patients may favour or overuse one shoulder over another.

What does a myofascial release session looks like?

During our Myofascial Release in Melbourne, the myotherapist applies gentle continued pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions.  This removes all pain while restoring normal motion.  The pressure must be continuous to elongate the fascia.

While oils, creams, or machinery are hardly used during a Myofascial Release treatment session, a bit of lubricant or cream helps to avoid skin irritation and helps the therapist to identify the presence of fascial restrictions and deduce the amount of continuous pressure needed to ensure the fascia’s release.

Does myofascial release hurt?

While the Myofascial Release may come with considerable intensity and pain, we ensure quick regulation of pressure to ease you of any discomfort. You should work with experienced myofascial release Melbourne experts, to ensure a safe and effective session.
