Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release

November 16, 2007 · No Comments


Massage Magazine prefers that I not answer specific treatment questions relating to a person’s diagnosis or symptomatic complex and I fully agree.  From the Myofascial Release perspective one must see and touch the individual to be accurate and effective. We do not use protocols or formulas for symptoms or diagnosis’s.   Remember, “Find the pain, look elsewhere for the cause!”.  Rarely are the symptoms anywhere close to the actual cause of the problem.

In general, it is best to use the more gentle techniques with the fibromyalgia client. Utilize visual analysis, tissue texture analysis, motion testing and checking for energy flow blockage or chaos.  Fibromyalgia is the latest “buzz word” for unrecognized and improperly treated Myofascial restrictions.

Myofascial Release can be very helpful for those diagnosed with fibromyalgia.  Dael, take your time and be soft with them.
