Myofascial - Craniosacral
(40 hour advanced course)
Myofascial Release Therapy is a form of deep and superficial soft tissue therapy designed to release restrictions in the connective tissue fascia that surrounds muscles which have become inflexible as a result of trauma or chronic inflammation. Myofascial therapy is designed to break up deep layers of scar tissue and remove the associated toxic accumulations of these restrictions. As a result, the muscle regains an improved “range of motion”.
This technique is beneficial to most of the soft tissues, but the biggest improvement can be seen in the tendons, muscles and the fascia sheets covering these areas. Myofascial release therapy is designed to restore the normal range of motion to the tissues, thus preventing compensations and pain.
The quality of a person’s life begins to deteriorate the longer they are in pain. After some time, the physical symptoms are accompanied by emotional consequences such as depression, irritability, anxiety, anger, etc. All this will result in a decrease in their quality of life. The more rigid an individual’s body becomes, the more this will start to reflect in their mental and emotional state.
The use of myofascial release therapy in your practice can improve the quality of an individual’s personal and professional life. In many cases, it will allow an individual to be reintroduced to the work force even after a long period of absence.
