Myofascial manipulation is a type
of soft tissue manipulation.
It can be direct or indirect
whereas most soft tissue is direct.
With myofascia, you want to see which way
the fascia lets you move a person’s body
and you go in that direction.
And where you have freedom of movement,
you move it more and take up the motion
to help enhance functioning.
So myofascia of this tissue is
finding where we can go easily,
where the fascia of the tissue
underneath the skin
is stuck and not moving,
and then going and trying
to pull it different ways.
I generally put 3 to 4 pounds of pressure
to get pass the skin,
so I can feel the fascial planes
and which way is ease of motion
and which way motion might be restricted.
That is myofascial manipulation.
