Myofascial Release
Myofascial Release (MFR) is a specialised, hands-on technique that works gently on soft tissue and fascial restrictions to eliminate pain and tension to restore motion and flexibility throughout your body.

Fascia surrounds, protects and links every muscle, bone, tendon, nerve, ligament and organ of your body. When healthy, the fascia is relaxed and allows you to move without restrictions or pain, helping to provide stability and mobility to your joints.

Your fascia can be damaged through physical and emotional trauma or poor posture. This causes the fascia to become hard and stiff in the affected area, losing its flexibility; pulling any linked body structures out of alignment; causing you problems with the stability and mobility of your joints; and causing pain. The hardened fascia further causes nerves, blood vessels and lymphatic vessels to be crushed, creating further restrictions and pain.

Myofascial Release is generally a gentle therapy and an effective treatment for many conditions causing pain and problems with mobility and flexibility. As it is gentle and does not greatly increase circulation it is suitable for many people who need gentle physical treatments.
