WHAT IS MYOFASCIAL RELEASE THERAPY (MFR)?
MFR is an alternative treatment that supports the body’s natural potential to heal itself. In addition, this holistic therapy uses gentle, sustained pressure and stretch to release restrictions in the fascial system.
Comprised of a triad of techniques; Myofascial Release (structural release), Rebounding (wave-like rocking motion), and Unwinding (facilitated movement), MFR creates powerful healing in the physical and emotional body. As a result, chronic pain, physical trauma, and stress-related symptoms are alleviated.
WHAT IS THE FASCIAL SYSTEM?
A framework of support and protection for the body, and is comprised of fascia (a connective tissue) and ground substance (a watery lubricant). Fascia wraps around every muscle, bone, nerve, internal organ, and most importantly every cell. So, truly fascia supports everything. Normally fascial fibers, lubricated with ground substance, glide freely. However, when injured, it dehydrates becoming as dense and thick as plastic. Restrictions in the fascia lock down the tissues and organs generating chronic pain, misalignment, and dysfunction in the body. As restrictions hold they extend a line of pull to distant areas creating complex patterns of pain and immobility.
WHAT TO EXPECT
This session begins with a postural assessment for areas of imbalance, decreased flexibility, and tightness. Prolonged pressure and stretch will be applied to release fascial restrictions and techniques will be held for a minimum of 5-7 minutes. This is not a massage. No lotions are used so that the therapist can adhere properly to the skin. For Myofascial Release treatment, it is best if women can wear an everyday bra and underwear. However, if you are more modest loose fitting shorts or yoga shorts and a sports bra are acceptable. Men will need to bring a pair of loose-fitting shorts.
Be certain that your skin is free of lotion and perfume.
