In my over 50 years of experience I have found that myofascial restrictions are the cause of the majority of the symptoms of pain, headaches, fibromyalgia and restrictions in range of motion that your clients present with. The inclusion of Myofascial Release with massage and other forms of bodywork will greatly enhance your ability to treat the cause and effect.
You may want to visit my Therapeutic Insight article, “Rufus, the cat,” which is a humorous, but true story about the difference between symptoms and taking care of the cause and effect relationship.
