Glen Head Myofascial Release
Myofascial release therapy is the release of the connective tissue surrounding the muscle fiber that supports your entire body. When restricted, the connective tissue (known as fascia) can cause significant problems, particularly with posture. At Massage For Health the myofascial massage technique applies sustained pressure that allows these connective tissue fibers to loosen and become more flexible, relieving persistent tension that is the frequent cause of chronic pain.
The Benefits of Myofascial Release Massage Therapy:

Myofascial Injury Affects Proper Nerve Function and Blood Circulation
Trauma or injury in a particular area can lead to myofascial dysfunctions that limit your range of motion and compress muscles or nerves causing decreased blood circulation. The result is chronic pain and reduced physical performance. At Massage For Health I uses myofascial release techniques that stretch and release adhesions and condition your body to release natural endorphins. Although myofascial release techniques are gentle, it has a significant and profound effect on the body, providing lasting relief. I invite the people of Glen Head to contact me for more information or to schedule an appointment.
