Myofascial release therapy focuses primarily on the fascia which is a connective tissue throughout the entire body. Usually, the fascia can hold a lot of pain and tension, which is generally interpreted as soft tissue pain. This form of massage actually goes deeper, releasing the pain and strain from the fascia, rather than simply treating the higher layers of tissue. Stretching techniques may also be applied to help increase the range and the freedom of movement.
