Myofascial Massage Treatment

       In myofascial massage a firm straight edge instrument is used to massage over the skin. This is different than a manual massage in that the massage tool will penetrate much deeper into the muscle.

       The scrapping action of the massage tool over the skin pulls on the fascia also known as the connective tissue.  It is the fascia which holds all our body’s tissues together.

       By using this superficial technique, we can actually make changes deep in the body since all fascia is connected. When there is an injury to a muscle, tendon or ligament; adhesions tend to form during the remodeling process. The myofascial massage helps to realign the soft tissue structures during this remodeling process preventing the adhesion formation.

        If the injury goes from acute to chronic the myofascial massage technique can still be used to break the adhesions causing micro-trauma which can be seen as bruising forcing the body to remodel the injured tissue again.

        The myofascial massage also helps to heal an injured area by increasing blood flow to an area. This can especially be seen in instances of tendonitis, bursitis, plantar fasciitis, and facet syndrome since these areas tend to have a poor blood supply.

         Myofascial massage can also be used to release a contracted muscle such as in tensor fascia latae contraction causing hip and knee pain. It is also beneficial forthe master muscle in temporomandibular joint disorders.
