‘The musculoskeletal system consists of the soft tissues: muscle, fascia, tendon and ligament…Fascia is all encompassing and packages, supports and envelops all the body’s muscles and organs. It separates different muscles yet allows them to glide smoothly besides each other…Fascia, therefore, plays a key role in maintaining the ‘health’ of muscle.’ – Mary Sanderson.
Soft Tissue sets out to address soft tissue complaints through manual pressure, movement and manipulation; Fascial Release attends to the different layers of fibrous connective which envelop the whole body, muscles and organs.
