The use of Myofascial Release allows the therapist to look at you as a unique individual. The one-on-one therapy sessions are hands-on treatments during which the therapist uses a multitude of Myofascial Release techniques. The therapist is softening the tissue by using a constant, gentle pressure with each technique, which is held approximately five minutes. That constant, gentle pressure releases the tightness because the hyaluronic acid (gel-like substance) that is enclosed between the weave of the fascia softens. This softening of the gel-like substance from the constant, gentle pressure is called the piezoelectric effect. The piezoelectric effect forces those molecules to line up and cause an electrical current to cross it which softens that gel to more of a solution.
