Myofascial Release is a safe and effective hands-on approach to the treatment of the whole body, which involves applying gentle sustained pressure into connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. In order to evaluate and treat the cause of your symptoms, the MFR practitioner applies a variety of sustained pressures, in combination with stretch and motion to melt and unravel tension and tissue restrictions in your body. Pressures range from heavy to light depending on your body’s needs.
Myofascial restrictions in one area of the body can affect the whole body. These restrictions create pain and stiffness making it difficult for you to move and prohibiting you from doing those things you love to do. In fact, such restrictions can produce tensile pressures of about 2,000 pounds per square inch. Myofascial release eliminates the restrictions, taking the pressure off the pain sensitive structures in your body. This eliminates your pain, restores healthy alignment, and allows you to function in a more optimal state.
