Myofascial Release, The 3-Planar Fascial Fulcrum Approach, is a non-aggressive technique to eliminate fascial tensions in the body. This approach, developed by Sharon W. Giammatteo, PhD, PT, is based on over thirty years of her scientific and clinical research in the field of manual therapy. There are many different manual therapy approaches for treatment of pain and dysfunction. Myofascial Release is used for treatment of connective tissue related dysfunction.

These techniques provide solutions for fibromyalgia, acute and chronic inflammation, chronic pain, rotator cuff syndrome, recurrent subluxations, thoracic outlet syndrome, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, plantar fasciitis, Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, promotes healing post surgery, and much more.
