Release With Therapeutic Small Balls: Using an assortment of therapeutic balls of different sizes and densities (or other tools) distinct applications of a ball to the body, traction and body weight. You learn a systematic method to: elongate muscle, free muscular & myofascial restrictions, separate muscle compartments, free joint capsule restriction, and identify and release trigger points.

Based on the Latest Myofascial Science: The Method employs the groundbreaking anatomy of the myofascial chain system as its foundation. Based on the respected courses and books from Thomas Myers and The Kinesis Myofascial Institute – “Anatomy Trains – Myofascial Meridians”.
