Myofascial Release in Lansing

myofascial releaseThe myofascial release technique we use at Rassel-Daigneault Holistic Health Center can open the gate to your effective therapy and healing. While deep tissue massage is an intense massage that gets closer to the bone, in myofascial release we apply pressure as the body allows and very slowly push tension away.

The result is a loosening of muscle tension and an opening to add in other therapies that the body will now be more likely to receive and react to positively.

The Case for Myofascial Release and Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is necessary when nerves are too tightly wrapped around muscle fibers, restricting the flow of blood and oxygen to certain areas of the body. When a muscle is limited in blood supply, it leads to a situation where the affected muscle will try to essentially borrow blood from a neighboring muscle, causing pain to radiate from one area to other parts of the body.

Myofascial release can help you relieve pain and the problems related to constricted muscles as it breaks up the transverse dendrites that wrap around the muscle fibers. In pushing the muscle fibers free (always in the direction of the heart to enhance blood flow), we set the stage for adjustments and therapies that help you achieve a healthier homeostasis.

The Whole-Body Benefits of Myofascial Release

At various stages of the health journey, myofascial release and massage therapy can be key components. At the beginning, it can be crucial to make your body and mind more receptive to care. As you advance in healing, myofascial release and massage therapy can drastically speed up and make way for healing through the other modalities offered at our Lansing clinic.

For example, myofascial release can release tension in muscles that are causing misalignment. Without the massage therapy, chiropractic adjustments would be counteracted by muscles pushing bones out of place. With it, lasting healing can occur.
