Restore Ease of Movement With This Easy Trick
The fuzz is the sliding surface between the muscles. We feel stiff in the morning because the fuzz becomes solidified. Stretching in the morning helps melt the fuzz the same as when you move.
If we have an injury, we tend to hold our bodies in a position that keeps us out of pain; fear of pain prevents us from stretching or moving. Day after day, when we limit our range of motion, this stiffness increases and the fuzz fibers start to get intertwined, becoming thicker while building up. This inhibits our potential for movement and our bodies become solidified. Manual therapies such as Fascial Stretch Therapy, Soft Tissue Release and Massage Therapy help break up fuzz and restore movement.
