Myofascial release therapy is another type of bodywork that involves releasing stiffness in the fascia, the connective tissue system that contains each muscle in the body. Your therapist will massage and stretch any areas that feel tense with light pressure.

Because the fascia is three-dimensional, it flows both through and around the muscles. Stretching can assist, but myofascial massage is a better treatment since it penetrates the muscle to get to the tight fascia inside.
