Myofascial Release Therapy

MFR is a gentle, non invasive, hands on therapy, that resolves physical and emotional pain, without the use of drugs or surgery.

Fascia, the largest and richest sensory organ of the body.

During a MFR session, your therapist will locate the fascial restrictions in your body and then apply sustained gentle pressure into the connective tissue to release restrictions.

Physical and emotional trauma, surgeries, poor posture, repetitive stress, inflammation and injuries can all cause restrictions in the fascial system. Fascial restrictions affect our flexibility, stability and our ability to withstand stress and perform daily activities. When the restrictions are not resolved, you may develop chronic pain and or illness and nothing seems to help.

Consider a surgical scar across the lower abdomen, many women have them. The drag from the scar can pull into the body, causing problems that seemingly appear to have no connection to the old scar: back pain, incontinence, neck, jaw and shoulder pain, breathing problems, digestion, and elimination problems. In truth, most of the time, those surgical scars have everything to do with the pain.
