Myofascial Release (MFR) is a hands on technique that deeply impacts the fascial system of the body. Fascia is a slightly mobile connective tissue in the body that surround every bone, organ and system of the body. Through trauma, inflammatory processes and poor posture the fascia can become solidified, shortened and restricted. These restrictions pull the body out of natural alignment and can cause physical, mental and emotional pain.
MFR releases these fascial restrictions to bring the body back into alignment and optimal health. This work is done directly on the skin with no lotion and no drag or sliding on top of the skin. Gentle pressure is held for at least 5 minutes in order to sink deep into the fascial layer to lengthen and release restrictions. MFR may create emotional and physical release during and after the session.
The beauty of this therapy is that it connects the mind and body, the physical and spiritual. To truly heal we cannot separate these aspects of our human experience.
