Salt Lake City, UT— Myofascial release is a type of bodywork which employs a steady, constant physical pressure, working through restricted areas in the soft tissues of the body. Known for its effectiveness in alleviating pain and in creating healthy changes in the muscular and connective tissues of the body, this massage has become the foundation for many therapists' work.

In Aesthetic VideoSource's instructional DVD, Myofascial Release Techniques , certified massage therapist, John Hoffmann, demonstrates the strokes and techniques for a detailed myofascial release session. In this comprehensive video, he also addresses the benefits and contraindications, warm-up techniques, lines and landmark muscles along their anatomical path, and how to address specific complaints.

Fascia refers to a type of connective tissue that encompasses the entire body, while encasing each individual structure in the body. So every bone, every muscle, every organ, every vein, every artery has a layer of fascia that runs around it. By its very nature, fascia provides a key supportive structure for all the body's systems. Through its continual and multi-directional network of fibers, the fascia maintains the structural integrity through motion.

Through the development of disease or injury, the fascia can become restrictive and a source of tension, exerting pressure, causing pain, and limiting mobility. Myofascial Release Techniques can help smooth out the fiber, allowing the body to move and function properly. This deep tissue massage, while promoting relaxation, creates change in the physical structure of the muscle and fascia.

"When a client asks for deep tissue work or talks about chronic tension and pain, myofascial release can benefit them," says Hoffmann.

"This is the most detailed myofascial release DVD ever produced," says Shirley Erickson Gorospe, president of Aesthetic VideoSource. "Even the most advanced massage therapist can learn new techniques."

John Hoffmann is a certified massage therapist, practicing in the Los Angeles area for over 15 years. He holds two Bachelors Degrees, as well as a certificate in Craniosacral Therapy from the Institute of Psycho-Structural Balancing in California.
