Myofascial Restrictions can put up to 2,000 pounds of pressure per square inch on the pain sensitive structures on your body which can create the feeling of a "pull", "drag" or "straight jacket". No wonder people are walking around with chronic pain!  Fascia does not show up on standard tests such as X-rays, MRI's, CAT scans, or electromyography which may be why people go undiagnosed or even misdiagnosed.

So..What Is Fascia? It is a continuous strong laminated sheet of connective tissue (like a 3D web), that runs uninterrupted from our head to our toes, from front to back. It's an information superhighway between the body and the brain. Think of it like the white parts of an orange… it wraps the orange under the peel, it separates the orange into sections, and it even divides up the individual orange slices into tiny strands inside the slice. This is true in our bodies: fascia wraps our body under our skin, wraps around all muscles (and other structures) to hold their form.


Under healthy circumstances, fascia is relaxed and able to stretch in response to the physical demands we put on our bodies and the forces of nature. It's our natural shock absorber.  Fascia is a fluid and elastic material that gives us our shape, carries nerve impulses, and connects each part of the entire body to every other part.  The fascia protects our body by bracing during an impact, trauma, surgery, or stressful situation.  Releasing these restrictions reduces pain and increases movement, stability, and flexibility while allowing your body and mind to heal.


Fascial restrictions can also take us out of proper alignment, causing our joints to compress which can cause joint degeneration, pain, and weakness. Fascia can also compress internal organs or nerves - leading to a myriad of other symptoms.  Receiving Myofascial Release with Karen can help you on your healing journey.

Myofascial Release approaches every client as an individual. This illustration below shows four figures that all say “My back is killing me…” but the fascial restrictions causing their pain (shown in the different colors) are in a different part of the body for each individual. The same treatment approach would not help each person, yet this is often how healthcare works.
