Myofascial Release (MFR) is a safe and effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to reduce pain and increase range of motion.
Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create Myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures that do not show up in many of the standard tests (x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.)
The use of Myofascial Release allows the therapist to look at each patient as a unique individual. My one-on-one therapy sessions are hands-on treatments during which I use a multitude of techniques combined with movement therapy.
Each MFR session is performed directly on skin without oils, creams or machinery. This enables the therapist to accurately detect fascial restrictions and apply the appropriate amount of sustained pressure to use.
