"My work is called Myofascial Release due to the style of engagement that most resembles traditional gentle, sustained myofascial release treatment. I no longer believe that I am able to singularly and selectively target fascia (connective tissue) beneath the skin to the exclusion of all other tissues, as many in the myofascial release field believe. Having a broader, more scientifically plausible explanation allows the consideration of many more factors to influence our interventions."  Walt Fritz, PT
