Understanding Myofascial Release Therapy

Understanding Myofascial Release Therapy

One of the pillars of Body Balance Strength & Wellness, located in Boulder, Colorado, is myofascial release therapy. Odds are, if you ask someone on the street to define myofascial release therapy, they’ll have no idea what you’re referring to. But that’s why we’re here! Here, we’ll demystify the world of myofascial release, dive into the benefits of this type of therapy and how it can help transform a body away from pain and into strength and freedom of movement. As we embark on a journey to understand this therapy and its many benefits, the importance of entrusting your well-being to an expert in this field becomes evident. 


Key to understanding myofascial release therapy lies in understanding the fascia and its role in the body. It is the interconnected web of connective tissue, which runs throughout our body, influencing our posture, movement, and overall comfort. This therapy is designed to address restrictions and tension within the fascial system, aiming to restore balance and alleviate discomfort.


Unlike traditional massage, myofascial release therapy delves beyond the surface, targeting the fascial network with specialized techniques. Skilled therapists apply sustained pressure, stretching, and gentle manipulation to release tightness in the fascia, facilitating improved mobility and overall well-being.
