Fascia is a network of fibrous connective tissue that attaches, stabilises, encloses and compartmentalises every muscle, muscle fibre and internal organ within the body. Closely packed bundles of collagen fibres are oriented throughout the body in myofascial lines that distribute strain, facilitate movement, expedite communication, and provide stability throughout the structures of the body.
These lines or meridians, as developed and dissected by prominent anatomist and soft tissue specialist Tom Myers, work together as one system to bring balance and integrity to the human structure and function to the body. Myers developed the myofascial meridians as a way of explaining the role of the fascial system in relation to human structure and function and has become a leading resource in the study of the fascial network that runs through out our entire body.
When fascia becomes restricted, compensation patterns emerge that create pain and dysfunction elsewhere in the body. Myofascial release works to break up these restrictions, alleviating pain and restoring optimal tissue function.
