The founder of Myofascial Release Massage is Howard Rontal, Certified Heller Work Practitioner.
Fascial tissue is a white membrane which wraps all parts of a muscle-muscle bundles and fibers. About 40% of a muscle is fascial tissue. Fascial tissue is continuous throughout the body. It also wraps bones, all organs, nerves, and blood vessels. Healthy fascial tissue is soft, pliable stretchy and slick. Over time as we age, for reasons of physical trauma, disease and habit patterns, fascial tissue becomes hard, dense, inelastic and short.
With the myofascial release massage, the fascial tissue can be transformed to a healthier state.
