Myofascial Release (MFR) is a safe and very effective, hands-on technique that involves applying gentle, sustained pressure into the myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. Many people of all ages experience myofascial pain caused by muscular irritation. For example, the large upper back muscles are prone to developing myofascial pain that radiates from sensitive points, called trigger points throughout muscle tissue. Fascia is a band or sheet of connective tissue, primarily collagen, beneath the skin that attaches, stabilizes, encloses, and separates muscles and other internal organs.
40-, 60- and 90-minute sessions available.
What to Expect
After asking you about what your body is currently experiencing, your therapist will work on your body, letting your body guide the MFR process. No lotion is used and skin-on skin-contact is best to feel into the restrictions and allow the body to release.
Recommended attire for MFR sessions are comfortable shorts/underwear and a tank top or bra.
