Myofascial Release is a very gentle therapy that treats the cause and not just the symptoms of most problems. The theory of Myofascial Release requires an understanding of the fascial system (or connective tissue). Fascia (conective tissue) is a specialized system of the body that has an appearance similar to a spider's web or a wool sweater. Fascia is very densely woven. It lines and covers every muscle, bone, nerve artery and vein as well as all of our internal organs including the heart, lungs, brain and spinal cord. The fascial system is actually a structure that exitsts from head to foot without interruption.
In the normal healthy state, the fascia is relaxed and wavy in configuration. It has the ability to stretch and move without restriction. When we experience physical trauma or inflammation, however, the fascia loses some of its pliability, becoming tight, restricted and a source of tension to the rest of the body.
Trauma, such as a fall, whiplash, surgery or just habitual poor posture over time has a cumulative negative effect influencing the skeletal framework and our posture. The fascia can exert excessive pressure, producing pain or restriction of motion, affecting our flexibility and so are a determining factor in our ability to withstand stress and strain.

Remedial massage holistically treats the whole body and traces the discomfort as far as possible back to the original cause, healing both the cause of the disorder as well as the symptoms. It uses several specialised techniques to locate and repair damage and to support and speed up the body's own repair mechanisms. The massage is applied directly to the skin using a lubricating medium, usually oil, which ensures that the muscles associated with the disorder and mobilisation of the joint are deeply penetrated. Passive stretching moves are also used.
Key benefits of Remedial Massage include:
- The stimulation to the blood supply allowing toxins in the muscles to be removed
- The calming of the peripheral nervous system to ease pain and discomfort
- Toning and relaxing of muscles to improve joint mobility
- Improvement to the health of the cells
- Repairing of tissues
- Easing of stiffness
- Muscular and skeletal dysfunctions
