Fascia is a connective tissue providing support and protection for most structures within the human body, including muscle. It is effectively a sticky film under the skin, covering the whole of the body. When fascia becomes too tight it can cause pain, tension and restriction of movement. Myofascial techniques are used in almost all our massage treatments here at Brighton Bodyworks to help the fascia unwind, releasing tension throughout the whole fascial system.
