Myofascial Release Therapy

As the fascial system binds down. Internal structures, including bones and muscles may become pulled out of alignment creating a cascade effect of tension and pain.

Myofascial Release (MFR) is a whole body, hands-on approach to healthcare. It is a mild and gentle form of stretching that has a profound effect upon the body.. A slow gentle pressure allows the body’s tissue to reorganise without force, release physical restrictions and release the body’s unconscious holding and bracing patterns.


Fascia can be described like a 3D sweater, when the fascial network is traumatised it is pulled and twisted out of alignment rather like a pull in the sweater. Therefore, if the fascia has tightened creating bands of tension three dimensionally throughout the body resulting in symptoms distant to the injury then all the appropriate localised treatments will produce limited or temporary results.
