Self Myofascial Release (SMR) & Muscle Restoration Workshop
Every structure in the body — organs, muscles, nerves, blood vessels, etc. — is covered in a layer of fascia; it allows everything to run smoothly and slide without friction. Through overstress of our muscles, whether through overuse or trauma, our layers of fascia can get tears in them. When the tears don’t heal properly, the various layers of fascia in your body can adhere together in spots (called adhesions), which will cause pain and discomfort. These adhesions keep your muscles from working the way they’re supposed to, which keeps your body from living up to its potential for strong and natural movement.
This is where where foam rolling and other similar exercises come into play. When we put pressure on these adhesions, they are released, and we can get back to optimal physical performance.
SMR Will: Increase elasticity and re-establish range of motion
Restore structural integrity by establishing proper muscle length-tension relationships
Target and break up scar tissue and adhesions
Assist in regaining a neutral posture and restore positive biomechanics
Flush your tissue, create pliability, and decrease pain
--All allowing a given muscle to function more efficiently
