Myofascial Release massage focuses on reducing pain by easing the tension and tightness in the trigger points, the technique is designed to loosen or release fascia and fascial adhesions. Myofascial adhesions are also known as: trigger points, tender points, fibrosis, scar-tissue, and advanced glycation end products. These tissues surround and support the muscles throughout your body.
It’s not always easy to understand what trigger point is responsible for the pain therefore localizing pain to a specific trigger point is very difficult. For example when shoulder muscle trapezius has a trigger point it will refer pain up the side of your neck and head causing you a headache. Active myofascial trigger points in the muscles of the shoulder, neck, and face are a common source of headaches. In many instances the headache has the features of so-called tension headache, but myofascial trigger points may initiate classical migraine headaches or be part of a tension & migraine headache complex.
The massage therapy combines three basic techniques: compression stretching, which achieves (for deep relaxation and relieves tension); clearing methods (to clean obstructions from soft tissue such as scar tissue, muscle bundles, and trigger points); and separating techniques to release myofascial adhesions and rebalancing muscles. Myofascial release is often used over a broad area of muscle and tissue rather than at single points on the body.
Myofascial release is a type of physical therapy often used to treat myofascial pain syndrome. Myofascial pain syndrome is a chronic pain disorder caused by sensitivity and tightness in your myofascial tissues occurs when the fascia stick to the muscle and creates a bumps called myofascial nodules or myofascial trigger points. It makes the muscles decrease its length or flexibility, one of the main reasons why our muscles are still tight even after doing constant stretching. The pain usually originates from specific points within your myofascial tissues called trigger points.
Myofascial Release works for sustained stretching of tissue between two spots, while Trigger point therapy is a sustained pressure at a single place. Myofascial massage therapy typically involves dynamic and very slow stretching and tension on the tissues with an aim to influence the fascia fabric which surrounds muscles. The focus here is more on encouraging the smooth sliding of muscles and the fascia so that restrictions are reduced.
