Fascia is connective tissue, found just under the surface of the skin, which encompasses the whole body (holding the structure of the body together like a diving suit would.) Muscle ("myo") is intertwined with the fascial tissue, and together it makes up the myofascial structure. A fascial line may connect from toe to hamstring, up to the hip, to the lower back, up to the shoulder. When one of these areas is imbalanced or adhered to other tissue, it can disrupt the entire alignment of the structure.
This technique involves a slow, deep movement targeting the origin of the imbalance within the facial line. The area is worked to release tension, potentially built into the system over a longer period of time, eventually releasing the entire structure.
