Fascial Release Therapy

What can Fascial Release do for you? 

  • Act on chronic pain, often caused by tightness in the fascial tissue of the body
  • Scar tissue from operations, accidents and injuries can cause trigger points and pain in other areas of the body that may not be local to a trauma
  • Adjust postural imbalances that may cause joint pain, muscle pain and other symptoms by reducing fascial tightness and trigger points that may be active
  • Chronic pain can dissipate
  • Any compensatory adjustments that were affecting the body because of the pain can be returned to normal
  • Because Fascial Release is so gentle, it can help with pooling of blood in veins. Fascial release has been known to reduce pain caused by this problem.

Some of the benefits:

  • Can relieve chronic headaches
  • Reduces myofascial pain syndrome and the effects
  • Venous problems, for example pooling in the veins
  • Aches and pains on the body
  • Adjusts postural alignment, helping to strengthen the body
  • Encourages the parasympathetic (relaxing) nervous system, thereby helping reduce systems of anxiety, tension and stress (physical and with the mind)
  • Enhanced health and wellbeing
  • Scar tissue from injuries, traumas and operations can be addressed.

What is Fascia?

  • Fascia is a band or sheet of connective tissue, primarily collagen surrounding muscles, bones, internal organs, nerves and blood vessels; which can be found superficially and deep within the body.
  • The function of fascia is to aid movement, allowing structures to smoothly glide over each other; protect structures in the body; and surround structures in the body to keep them together.

What is Fascial Release?

Fascial release is used with a light touch. Resting the hands gently on the body feeling the fascia move and release. This therapy cannot be rushed. It can be used to work with the deeper tissues in the body, as well as the more superficial tissues under the skin.

What happens in a session?

  • A consultation noting ALL medical conditions, historical and current, mental and physical
  • A full discussion about the problem(s) and how we can proceed. Also discussing what to expect after the session. Massage and/or Craniosacral therapy may also be incorporated into the session
  • Fully clothed, the session will take between 45 minutes and an hour
  • Trigger points can form, exacerbating pain, and often causing pain in other areas of the body from where the trauma may have been. So fascial release may be over a larger area from the pain site
  • Exercises, stretches and strengthening may be given, along with advice about body health and wellbeing
  • Try to relax following the therapy and avoid exercise that day
  • Sometimes emotions are felt during the session. This is normal. Just let me know and I will help you through it.

This is not to replace medication, or other therapies you may be having to help with your situation.

"I came to Janet with a long term issue with my ankles. They would hurt and stiffen after exercise or any amount of walking. After three or four sessions of fascial release and massage, the symptoms were much improved. There is now no pain when I walk or exercise."
