Fascia is a continuous membrane that envelopes and supports every bone, muscle, organ, and fiber in the body. Fascia creates structure in our bodies, cushions and protects our tissues, and prevents friction during movement.
Vital Connections Massage & Bodywork recognizes that injuries and tension create restrictions in our fascia. Because fascia is continuous throughout the body, restriction in one area of the body creates lines of tension that pull distant areas out of alignment. This, in turn, translates into pain and dysfunction in the body.
Myofascial release uses gentle techniques to release restrictions in the fascia. As a result, clients at Vital Connections Massage & Bodywork re-establish proper posture, restore efficient movement, and relieve strain, fatigue, and chronic pain.
Muscles and fascia are not the only soft tissues affected by injuries and posture. Blood vessels and nerves can sustain overstretching and injury as well. We employ Neurovascular Release techniques to gently release tension in blood vessels and peripheral nerves. We use Craniosacral Techniques to work with the central nervous system and associated structures. These techniques complement one another and are often used in conjunction with Myofascial Release to achieve more complete healing.
