Myofascial Release Technique (MFR)

Each MFR treatment session is performed directly on the skin without oils or cream.  This enables the therapist to accurately detect fascial restrictions.

MFR can be used as a stand-alone therapy or as a technique integrated into my other massage treatments.

What is MFR?

Fascia is connective tissue that runs around and through every structure in your body (including muscle, bone, organ, nerve and blood vessel). Myofascial Release is a stretching technique that involves slow pressure, applied to the body using fascial release techniques.

In a normal healthy, hydrated state, fascia has the ability to stretch and move freely. However in the case of injury, physical illness, poor posture and emotional stresses, the body is thrown out of alignment and cause the web of fascia to become tight and constricted.

 

MFR may be beneficial for:

  • Lumbar thoracic pain
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Whip Lash
  • Scar tissue/ Adhesions
  • Restricted range of movements
