Massage therapy focuses on the body’s soft tissue and musculature. Its goal is to alleviate tension and stress through touch and manipulation of the tissues. Myofascial release works the connective tissue, or fascia. During this treatment, the massage therapist gently applies pressure to loosen the tightness in the fascia believed to cause muscle restrictions. Back pain and a decrease in range of motion are common complaints of myofascial therapy clients. Myofascial release uses sustained pressure to stretch and lengthen the connective tissue. It is also done with minimal lotion to allow the therapist to achieve the required depth in the tissue.
