Myofascial Release (MFR) is fast gaining recognition as the missing link in traditional healthcare. But what is Myofascia Release therapy?
Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective manual therapy that involves applying gentle, sustained pressure into the myofascial connective tissue restrictions. As gentle pressure is applied slowly, the fascia begins to “release” or elongate. This amazing hands-on technique helps to soften and open up (or “release”) these restricted areas, eliminating pain, restoring motion and improving function.
What conditions might benefit from myofascial treatment?
Fascia is affected by injury or trauma (anything physical or emotional), inflammatory processes and habitual poor postures. These can impose a “straight-jacket” of force, resulting in a myriad of symptoms distant to the site of the original injury. (e.g. pain, headaches, anxiety and other symptoms.)
MFR can help with headaches, back and neck pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, muscle pain and spasm, fibromyalgia and sciatica, TMJ syndrome, poor posture.
What can I expect during my treatment?
MFR is a manual, hands-on technique that is very different from traditional massage therapy. It is performed directly on the skin, and usually no creams, lotions or oils are used. This enables the therapist to accurately detect connective tissue restrictions and apply the appropriate amount of sustained pressure without sliding across the skin, in order to facilitate release of the fascia. MFR utilizes a prolonged pressure over specific areas where restrictions are located and uncovered. At times treatment can be quite gentle, and you may think that nothing is happening. Other times deeper restrictions may be uncovered, bringing about a variety of sensations( both emotional and physical) as these restricted areas release.
