Self-Myofascial Release Essentials
By the end of this module students should be able to safely and effectively use and teach essential basic use of Self-Myofascial Release or SMR.
Segen’s medical dictionary (2011) defines myofascial release as, “A type of soft tissue therapy used in osteopathy to release physically restricted musculoskeletal groups. It is believed that chronic tension and trauma cause the fascia, which envelop muscle, to become fixed in a particular position, known as a myofascial restriction. Manipulation of the myofascial group is believed to resolve the restriction”. In other words, myofascial release is a form of manual (hands-on) therapy to increase extensibility of tight and restricted fascia.
This module is aimed at…
Fitness Instructors, Personal Trainers, Group Exercises Instructors, Physiotherapists or any exercise or health practitioner that wants to safely and effectively utilise SMR within their coaching, classes or programming.
