Myofascial Release at
Islander Massage and Skincare
What is Myofascial Release?
Myofascial Release is a gentle form of bodywork that focuses on releasing restrictions in your body's fascial system. Myofascial Release works with the mechanisms of fascia rather than the mechanisms of muscle tissue. Fascia is enmeshed in every part of your body and in order to gain lasting results, the fascia must be addressed. Myofascial Release treats the body as a whole to release holding patterns from past traumas and daily stressors. It's unique nature allows it to treat a wide variety of symptoms and dysfunctions with few exceptions.
Conditions Improved by Myofascial Release
Headaches or Migraines
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Myofascial Pain Syndrome
What is a Myofascial Release treatment like?
It's much different from a typical massage session.
You will come prepared with clean, dry skin - no lotion.
Women, bring a sports bra and gym shorts.
Men, bring short gym shorts.
Your session will start with a postural analysis. We see how you hold your body with standing, sitting, laying down. We usually start with the area that has the most pain, but sometimes we will start elsewhere. It is a whole body treatment, but we do not always treat the whole body at each session. Feedback is encouraged throughout your session.
