Myofascial Release Therapy in St. Louis

  Myofascial Release is a very effective hands-on treatment that puts pressure into the myofascial system to reduce restrictions that could potentially reduce pain and restore balance.
  Fascia is a structure that covers everything (muscle, bones, blood vessels, nerves etc) in the body.
  Fascia exists from head to foot without interruption therefore; each part of the entire body is connected to every other part by the fascia, like the yarn in a sweater.
  Trauma, such as a fall, whiplash, surgery or just habitual poor posture over time and repetitive stress injuries can have cumulative effects.
  Sharon K. Hepburn, a physical therapist with over 17 years of experience, works within the fascial system of each client.
  The Inner Connection, with two locations in St. Louis, combines Myofascial Release with other modalities such as CranioSacral, Somatic Emotional Release, and Lymphatic Drainage to offer an integrated experience to the client.

Myofascial Release is a very effective hands-on technique that provides sustained pressure into myofascial restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. Fascia is very densely woven, covering and interpenetrating every muscle, bone, nerve, artery and vein as well as all of our internal organs including the heart, lungs, brain and spinal cord. It is actually one structure that exists from head to foot without interruption therefore, each part of the entire body is connected to every other part by the fascia, like the yarn in a sweater.

In the normal healthy state, the fascia is relaxed and wavy in configuration. It has the ability to stretch and move without restriction. When we experience physical trauma, scarring, or inflammation, however, the fascia loses its pliability. It becomes tight, restricted and a source of tension to the rest of the body. Trauma, such as a fall, whiplash, surgery or just habitual poor posture over time and repetitive stress injuries has cumulative effects. The changes they cause in the fascial system influence comfort and the functioning of our body. The fascia can exert excessive pressure producing pain or restriction of motion. They affect our flexibility and stability, and are a determining factor in our ability to withstand stress and strain.
