Myofascial release is based on the understanding of fascia, which is a connective tissue network throughout the body‘s neurovascular, musculoskeletal, and lymphatic systems. If you imagine an orange as your body, the rind as your skin, and the pulp as your muscles, the membrane that surrounds each segment and the white layer that binds them together is your fascia. Tightness in the fascia can contribute to or be the primary culprit of pain, restricted motion, and impediment to blood and lymphatic flow, even when other dysfunctions in the musculoskeletal system have been addressed. Christine feels for positional and movement-related asymmetries in various areas of your body and applies a specific, directional, gentle touch to release tightness and restore fascia balance and harmony.
