Myofascial Release focuses on finding knots or tender spots within the muscle and “breaking” them up. This technique requires the use of a foam roller. Foam rollers are cylinders made of foam which acts as a pressure point stimulant helping you find the tender spots. Hold the foam roller there for a minimum of thirty seconds. Just enough time to increase the Golgi tendon organ and decrease muscle spindle action.
Examples of myofascial relief:
