Myofascial Release

Everyone can benefit from Myofascial Release treatment. It is the most ignored system of the body. Fascia is a web-like structure throughout the body which supports the bones, organs and systems. Injuries cause restrictions in this structure. The distortions of posture and function caused by the restrictions of the fascia can cause pain or problems in the future. Pain can be a messenger of a problem. If we continually ignore a small message, our bodies can send a bigger message next time.

Myofascial Release
The web or our body that runs from head to toe is one of the most invigorated physiological systems of the body. Trauma and inflammatory responses create restrictions in the body web called fascia that can produce pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures like blood vessels, nerves, organs and bones. Over time tension and restrictions in the connective tissue of your body can lead to limited mobility, chronic pain and feelings of stress. Advanced Bodywork can structurally and energetically open and hydrate the body's system of energy for coherent flow of frequency, vibration, information and organization necessary for optimum health. Addressing the fascial system is the missing link in healthcare today.


What is Myofascial Release? (MFR)
Myofascial Release is a safe hands-on, whole body approach which evaluates and treats the cause of your symptoms. The practitioner applies a variety of sustained pressures, in combination with stretch and motion to unravel tension and connective tissue restrictions in your body. Pressures range from heavy to light depending on your what your body needs.


How do tissue restrictions form?
Restrictions develop from trauma, car accidents, surgical scarring, falls, birth trauma, sports injuries, repetitive stress injury, poor posture, scar tissue, inflammatory reactions and life stressors. 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.


What are the results?
MFR eliminates the restrictions, taking the pressure off of pain sensitive structures in your body. This eliminates your pain, restores healthy alignment and allows you to function with greater freedom and mobility.
