Myofascial release is helpful following breast cancer mastectomies, breast reductions and augmentation to eliminate pain and soften the scars. The scars can grow inside like a vine and can reach to the respiratory diaphragm and into the neck. This can cause respiratory problems and pull the person forward creating a posterior strain in the back and neck resulting in headaches  as well as neck  and back pain.

Myofascial release is helpful as a preventative measure  to keep your breasts healthy and restriction free.

Fascial restrictions in the pelvic area can cause pain and dysfunction locally as well as in other parts of the body like neck, head and shoulders.

Abdominal or pelvic scars from surgeries and episiotomies or traumas, such as sexual abuse can cause menstrual dysfunction, pelvic pain, painful intercourse, constipation, diarrhea or hemorrhoids.

A misaligned coccyx  from  falls,  pelvic torsion or childbirth can cause problems in the pelvic area as well as back pain, neck pain and headaches.

Using gentle external and internal (vaginally and rectally) myofascial release techniques will alleviate or eliminate pain.
