The fascia is connective tissue. It lies under the skin and surrounds muscles and organs in the body. It separates areas and protects. It is the ‘information highway’ of the body - nerves and blood vessels run through it.
Releasing fascial restrictions releases deep patterns of tension that can compromise athletic ability (and/or recovery and healing post-injury). It is a specific hands-on technique where specific restrictions are targeted within the connective tissue.
The cause and not just the symptoms are addressed as the fascia is connected throughout the body, so to impact a change in the whole body all of it does not have to be touched - releasing one area has an impact on other areas.
It is a powerful technique that can go very deep and is non-painful to the animal. It is also effective to improve scar tissue and restrictions.
