This MyoFascial Release Course teaches gentle but powerful techniques to release the connective tissue that holds the body in dysfunctional postural patterns. Almost every tissue in the body is surrounded by some type of fascia, like an envelope. And distortions in the fascia at one end of the body can dramatically and adversely affect the health of the tissues elsewhere in the body. In the same way, releasing fascia around muscles in appropriate areas can "ease" local and distant tensions in the body, helping to restore optimal functioning and movement.
The gentle techniques of MyoFascial Release are also an ideal way of "softening" parts of the body that have a lot of tension and "holding" patterns, allowing easier access to deeper tissues when doing Massage Treatment.
The tutor is Leon Botello
