Description

  • For an in depth body massage, post sport cool down or rehabilitation.
  • Fascia is a sheet or band of connective tissue beneath the skin that attaches, stabilizes, encloses, and separates muscles.
  • It also surrounds internal organs to keep them separate. Like ligaments and tendons, fascia is made up of fibrous connective tissue containing closely packed bundles of collagen fibres oriented in a wavy pattern parallel to the direction of pull.
  • Fascia is consequently flexible and able to resist great unidirectional tension forces.
  • Fascia becomes important clinically when it loses stiffness or becomes too stiff or has decreased shearing ability.
  • When inflammatory fasciitis or trauma causes fibrosis and adhesions, fascial tissue fails to differentiate the adjacent structures resulting in a loss of muscle performance.
  • Self myofascial release (SMR) technique is a form of stretching utilizing the concept of autogenic inhibition to improve soft tissue extensibility.
  • This relaxing of the muscle/fascia helps to restore the normal hyaluronic acid viscosity.
  • This is helping to correct the positional relationship between adjacent tissue, which also aids the restoration of normal proprioceptive function to the injured area.
  • This technique can be effective for many muscles
  • gastrocnemius (calf)
  • latissimus dorsi (under the arm to the spine)
  • piriformis (hip to spine)
  • adductors
  • quadriceps (thigh)
  • TFF
  • ITA
  • hamstrings
  • hip flexors
  • thoracic spine
  • SMR is accomplished by rolling the Sissel Fascia roller under each muscle group until a tender area is found, and maintaining pressure on the tender areas (known as trigger points) for 30 to 60 seconds anatomically shaped optimal size, with hand holds
