    If you are really interested in this Somax deep tissue massage that involves pressing stricks into the muscle, check out the discussion in this golf forum:

    If instead you would like to work on an area with myofascial release, check out the following article by Suzanna McGee who posts here as Sixftlion, and has a great tennis fitness site, "Tennis Fitness Training".

    seems painful and expensive...so nevermind Microfiber Reduction

    checking those discussions, some mentioned PNF stretching .. now is that the same or similar to myofascial release?

    PNF (proprioceptive muscular facilitation) is entirely different.

    The following site has a good explanation of the principles involved: http://www.thestretchinghandbook.com/archives/pnf-stretching.php

    Please note the warning that injury can be incurred.


    In fact, exactly what really is happening at the cellular level is open for debate.

    Since muscle is much easier to tear than "scar tissue", does the increase in range of motion really result from multiple small muscle tears?

    Another question: How many who try this technique actually experience a hamstring or other muscle tear?


    But if you are interested here are some other sites with fairly understandable language (many sites are heavy into muscle physiology terminology):

    By releasing microfibers with Microfiber Reduction, Somax can measurably improve tennis performance.

    The client below increased his external arm rotation 20 degrees in just four weeks.

    Our client below increased his adductor range almost 300%, again in just four weeks.
