Myofascial Release is a highly effective technique that creates powerful change in the body. Sink into the body superficially to deep, learning techniques that allow you to work with less effort but compliment Osteopathic
work seamlessly.


Explore working superficially to shift protection patterns, change memory in the tissue, enhance lymph movement and encourage blood and nerve flow. Delve deeper into the myofascia with quick and easy techniques to effect specific muscles, as well as separate muscle groups, to create space in the body, change structure, increase ROM, realign posture and enhance muscle functioning.
