The Technique of Stripping Strokes

This technique involves the application of slow, deep, gliding pressure along the length of the muscle fibers. Stripping strokes release and elongate tightened muscle and fascia, flush the muscles with fresh blood, and ease trigger points (trigger points are hyperirritable muscle tissue that refer pain).

A masseuse might use a hand or forearm for larger muscles and knuckles, thumbs or supported fingers for detail work and smaller muscles.

Massage with Myofascial Release is a whole body, hands-on approach to reducing fascial restrictions and balancing the body.

Benefits of massage with myofascial release include improved muscle function, improved joint alignment, mobilized fascia, improved circulation, stronger muscles, increased stride length, enhanced relaxation and improved overall performance.
