Fascial stretching, also known as Connective Tissue Release, is a fast and effective way to improve mobility, provide pain relief, and restore optimal function to your body by releasing tension in the fascial system.
Fascia is collagen-based connective tissue that forms a continuous matrix throughout the body. Fascia surrounds individual muscles, muscle bundles within individual muscles, groups of muscles, blood vessels, and nerves. It provides structure while allowing motion. However, when there are fascial adhesions or scarring, which can be caused by repetitive motion, injury, over training, poor nutrition, etc then the tissues can not move the way it is designed to move. The tension that is felt is a result of these adhesions and restrictions.
