Neurofascial Release: Neurofascial Release is a type of light touch bodywork, which works at the level of the fascia and can be useful in treatment for many conditions. Because few other modalities work at this level, Neurofascial Release is often helpful in relieving problems that ‘just won’t go away’ with any other treatment.
Fascia is connective tissue in the body – it surrounds and permeates all the organs and structures of our bodies, holds things in place and gives us form, strength and support. We can imagine ourselves wearing a bodysuit fo fascia. Problems arise when there are twists or pulls in the fascia caused by trauma or poor posture. These strains can put pressure on other structures, which inhibits movement or function or causes pain. The problems are seldom relieved until the fascial strain is released. This is often seen with accident patients that still have pain even though everything seems in place, many of these patients that get discharged with painkillers and little hope could benefit greatly from Neurofascial Release.
