Soft Tissue Release
Soft Tissue Therapy
Fascia is the soft tissue component of connective tissue that provides support and protection for most structures within the human body. Soft tissue can become restricted due to overuse, trauma, inactivity, or emotional patterns and belief systems. Often these restrictions create diminished blood flow and are felt in the form of pain and muscle tension. The aim of fascial mobilisation is to produce a well balanced and mobile body within the skeletal, soft tissue, visceral and cranial sacral systems.
