Due to concerns around Covid-19, we are prioritizing the health and safety of our clients and staff and will be temporarily closed effective March 17. We plan to reopen to the community when our local stay-at-home orders allow and will provide a firm date once we are able to confirm.  Please email or call our studio if you would like to schedule a future massage. We are sorry for any inconvenience.

Muscle Fiber

Muscle Fiber

muscle fiber - /mus·cle/ (mus´'l) /fi·ber/ (fi´ber)

muscle fiber: any of the cells of skeletal or cardiac muscle tissue. Skeletal muscle fibers are cylindrical multinucleate cells containing contracting myofibrils, across which run transverse striations. Cardiac muscle fibers have one or sometimes two nuclei, contain myofibrils, and are separated from one another by an intercalated disk; although striated, cardiac muscle fibers branch to form an interlacing network.
