A cross release is applied by using the thumbs or fingers in a rolling action on strategic aspects of a muscle, tendon or ligament, or at neuro-muscular junction points. This can result in an effective release of the whole structure (eg the whole muscle). It will also stimulate a nerve or nerve bundle at that point, which affects the area of application as well as the body as a whole. In addition, and uniquely, the cross release stimulates the myofascia lines (concentrated lines of connective tissue), contributing to an overall body restructuring effect. When the cross release is applied in patterns that correlate to acupuncture formulae, it has a powerful impact on the self healing process.
Cross releasing is particularly effective for joint problems, tight muscles, organs, scar tissue, emotional release, improved sport performance, overall balance and well being.
