Myofascial release is a soft tissue therapy for the treatment of skeletal muscle immobility and pain. It aims to relax contracted muscles, improve blood and lympathic circulation, and stimulate the stretch reflex in muscles.
It focuses on releasing muscular shortness and tightness, and is often used over a broad area of muscle and tissue rather than at single points by applying gentle sustained pressure into the myofascial connective tissue.
