Myofascial Release  

Myofascial Release (MFR) is a type of soft tissue therapy—a refined, sustained stretch that addresses fascia—the tough connective fibro elastic tissue that covers all our muscles, bones, nerves, and blood vessels including all our internal organs. Fascia runs throughout our bodies, spreading like a three dimensional web from head to foot. MFR is a hands-on treatment that evaluates and cares for the whole body structure. This safe and gentle treatment has consistently removed restrictions that prevent free movement, restored motion, and relieved and eliminated soft tissue pain.

  Myofascial Release

Healthy fascia is relaxed and soft. It stretches and moves freely with a plastic fluidity without restriction. However, physical trauma such as a fall, auto accident, repetitive motion injury, or poor posture over a period of time, can produce a dysfunctional fascial system with limited motion and pain. Our fascia becomes tight and stiff and oftentimes a source of tension to the body. Because our fascial system is interconnected, tension in one part of the body, over time, can spread to other areas. Gentle MFR stretching techniques produces heat and increased blood flow, which releases tension from the fibrous bands of connecting tissue and removes restrictions or blockages in the fascia. MFR treatment allows the dysfunctional fascia to return to its position of balance.

Myofascial Release  

The MFR process changes the structure by heating the fascia; it becomes soft, elongated, and realigned. Body balance is restored by freeing disruptions of the fascial network and relieving tension on bones, muscles, joints, and nerves by moving slowly through layers of fascia from superficial to deep. The MFR therapist works with clients not on them. Utilizing skilled touch with presence, they receive direction and guidance for treatment from the client’s body, and follow its lead. The client is passive and allows his or her body to move wherever it wants to go.


  Myofascial Release

Clients who have suffered trauma, acute and chronic pain, emotional stress, inflammation, scar tissue, limited range of motion, and poor posture usually have fascial restrictions and benefit from the work. In addition neurological dysfunction, scoliosis, menstrual and pelvic pain, headaches, TMJ pain, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome, are a few other problems that have been treated successfully with MFR.

"My goal is to eliminate my client’s fascial restrictions and hopefully restore their fluid motion through its full range, and relieve or eliminate their pain. "

"I am totally committed to helping my clients relieve and eliminate pain and discomfort of body, mind, and spirit."
