“Myo-” means muscle and “fascial” is “a band or sheet of connective tissue, primarily collagen, beneath the skin that attaches, stabilizes, encloses, and separates muscles and other internal organs.” Fascia connects, supports and protects each of your muscles and internal structures. This connective tissue is densely woven around your entire body to connect everything from your head to your toes. Myofascial Release is a treatment to release the tension and stress on your Myofascial tissues.
CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on approach to enhance physical and mental wellbeing and health.
