Myofascial Release (MFR)
What Myofascial Release (MFR) is and how it works
Myofascial Release (MFR) is a safe and very effective hands on technique to reorganise the fascial tissue and break down adhesions. This involves applying gentle sustained pressure to directly lengthen, stretch, soften and improve the health of the fascial layers to relieve pain, resolve structural and postural dysfunction, restore function and mobility (and release emotional trauma), resulting in a feeling of being more at home in your own body.
MFR is often used before any soft tissue massage work which may be required and can be a lengthy process when done correctly. If we liken it to well groomed hair vs a tangled mess, the more tangled, the longer it is going to take to straighten out. But the good news is that it is possible in almost all cases.
Structural integration is a specific type of Myofscial Release. Treatments focus solely on the connective tissue, or fascia, of the body rather than the muscles which is more typical of soft tissue massage work.
