Myofascial Release (MFR) is an advanced form of manual therapy for adults, children and babies, that is safe, natural, and extremely effective in the treatment of acute and chronic pain and for overall health. Myofascial Release uses sustained, hands-on pressure into areas of pain or tension to release restrictions in the fascia. Fascia is the connective tissue that is spread three-dimensionally throughout our entire body, head to toe. The fascial system is similar in appearance to a spider’s web or sweater and is interwoven throughout every structure and cell of our body; muscle, bone, nerve, organs, including our heart, lungs, brain, and spinal cord. By releasing fascial restrictions, the body can begin to restore to its optimal function.
