About Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release Approach™ (MFR) is a form of structural bodywork, that addresses the body as a whole, allowing the body's fascial system to return to its correct position, length and function. MFR addresses the often overlooked fascial restrictions that can develop due to injury, post-surgical scarring, poor posture, or trauma.

During MFR therapy, sustained pressures and gentle stretches are applied to release restrictions deep in the affected tissues. This in turn relieves the pressure on other structures, allowing for increased range of motion and function, and decreased pain and discomfort.

The resulting release and unwinding restores freedom of movement and release from pain in ways that are unmatched by other therapeutic techniques.

The use of Myofascial Release allows the therapist to look at each patient as a unique individual; every session is specialized to your needs.


What is Fascia?

Fascia is a system of tightly woven connective tissue that runs from head to toe, front to back, three-dimensionally, uninterrupted, throughout the entire body. Every muscle, nerve, vein, artery, and organ – like the lungs, heart, brain and spinal cord – are held in place by fascia. 

Its job is to provide a sliding and gliding environment for muscles; to suspend organs in their proper place; to transmit movement from muscles to the bones they are attached to; and to provide a supportive and movable wrapping for nerves and blood vessels as they pass through  muscles.

Myofascial Release (MFR) uses stretching, compressions, skin rolling, and many other techniques to facilitate the release of adhesions (restricted fascia). It will help rehydrate and restore the fascial system to a balanced state. The therapist is a facilitator, working interactively with the client to achieve more efficient movement patterns.
