What is myofacial release? myofascial means muscle tissue (myo) and the connective tissue in and around it (fascia). Myofascial pain often results from muscle injury or repetitive strain. When stressed or injured, muscles often form trigger points, like contracted knots, that cause pain and tightness. Release and relieve back and shoulder pain with targeted self-massage trigger point therapy. You will be using specially designed high-grip rubber balls and focused movement routines that help penetrate through layers of skin and muscle to massage deeply into your high tension areas. This workshop will allow you to discover self-care techniques that will maintain and improve your strength and flexibility and prevent injuries up and down your spine.
