Fascia is a sheet of connective tissue beneath the skin that attaches, stabilizes, encloses, and separates muscles and other internal organs. The goal of myofascial therapy is to stretch and loosen the fascia so that your body can move more freely, restoring motion. It is sometimes referred to as 'myofascial release' therapy or 'myofascial trigger point therapy'.
Deep tissue massage is a technique that's used to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains and sports injuries. It involves applying sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues.
