This is a hands-on manual therapy technique used to release tension in the fascia and muscles. Fascia is a sheet of fibrous tissue that encases and supports muscles separating them into groups and layers. Fascia also covers joint capsules and ligaments. Following trauma, the fascia and muscles may shorten, restricting joint movement and blood flow. The techniques used will break up the fascial adhesions and relax muscle tension helping to normalize physical motion within the joint capsule.
