Myofascial Release is a hands-on technique where using pressure helps to eliminate pain and restore body motion. Fascia is a connective tissue and is basically a spider web that surrounds and attaches to every muscle, bone, nerve, vein, and artery. Fascia also provides stability, and when the fascial system is damaged due a fall or trauma, it can cause excessive pain and restriction of motion.
Self Myofascial Release is a self-rehab technique which allows pressure to massage away the pain or restrictions. A foam roller and body weight are the key ingredients for this technique. Below are helpful videos to walk you through the process.
