Myofascial Release Therapy
Fascia is a thin sheath of fibrous tissue encasing every muscle fiber, nerve cell and organ of the body. Fascial restrictions may be caused by prior injury, trauma, inflammatory responses or surgery. Restrictions in this systemic connective tissue produce tensile pressure on pain receptors, limit range of motion, inhibit normal movement patterns, and interfere with the body's normal healing process.
Myofascial Release is an advanced manual therapy technique that involves applying gentle, sustained pressure to soften and elongate the fascia. Myofascial release is performed directly on the skin without oils, creams or machinery which enables the therapist to detect adhesions on pain-sensitive structures that often cannot be observed using standard medical imaging tests and apply the appropriate amount of pressure. MFR treats the entire myofascial mind/body complex eliminating the pressure of restricted fascia to produce authentic healing and long lasting results.
