A continuation of Beginning Myofascial Release, this video explores advanced Myofascial Release techniques to balance each area of the body. Myofascial release is a gentle technique that affects the fascia. This type of work is a great adjunct to other styles of massage, and can help to free restrictions that deeper muscular work cannot.
