Who's MYofascial release for?

Anyone attempting to decrease the tightness / immobility of their muscle or joint tissues.

What's it For?

Myofascial release is a type of training that attempts to improve function and range of the muscular connective tissues...

Muscles, Tendons, Ligaments, and Joint Capsules.


Why should I do it?

If you've ever experienced stiffness, soreness or joint pain, you should try Myofascial Release!

Releasing overly engaged muscles, improving blood and lymphatic flow, and encouraging stretch reflex in muscles offers HUGE benefits and relief for all kinds of musculoskeletal issues. When your muscles and joints aren't operating smoothly or fully, tension is placed on the joints, pulling posture out of alignment and causing all kinds of compensation issues.

It also acts as a prevention for stiffness / soreness after workouts by warming and prepping the muscles for increased activity.

When should I do it?

Whenever you feel tight or experience restricted movement!

You can release for a minimum 30 seconds and receive huge benefits. It's especially useful for when you are feeling tight / tense at work or working out!

Where should I do it?

Anywhere you're feeling tight / stiff. Locate the muscles you're feeling tension in and apply constant medium pressure. If you're experiencing joint pain, release the muscle groups closest to the joint.

If releasing for warm up before your workout, release the muscle groups you're about to train.
