Myo means muscle and Fascia means connective tissue. Fascia is like your internal “Spider-man” webbing, which interweaves through your whole body, giving it shape, support and protection. Fascia covers every muscle fiber, encases all joints and supports your organs in their place. There is no beginning or end, which means that restriction, trauma or injury on one part of the fascia system can literally affect the entire body. The good news is – this also works in reverse! Release even a small area of restricted fascia and the entire body can respond in profound ways.
Myofascial Release uses gently sustained pressure to soften, lengthen and reorganize your entire system. The effects are long lasting, which is what sets it apart from regular massage treatments. You should notice less pain, increased range of motion, improved whole-body mobility, and feel more connected and comfortable in your own skin.
Myofascial restrictions can cause pain and restriction of motion. So, before you decide that you just have to “live with pain, restriction or limited mobility“, or have surgery, give Myofascial Release a try. It just might be the puzzle piece you are missing.
Please fill out and bring with you the intake forms. We will discuss your health history, goals and reasons for seeking MFR. Please wear or bring appropriate clothing to receive treatment in, such as: bra/ underwear, loose fitting gym shorts/ sports bra, tank top, or however you are most comfortable. Keep in mind that myofascial release is done on the skin, not through clothing. Please avoid using lotion or oil prior to your appointment.
Results vary by individual. There are a variety of factors involved in the healing process. Many clients experience a decrease in pain or increase in range of motion even after just one session. Depending on your therapeutic goals and current situation, however, patients may need sessions weekly, bi-weekly, or every other week for 4 to 12 weeks. Treatment once or twice a week is more likely to be encouraged during an acute situation or at the beginning of a treatment plan.
The patient may be asked occasionally for feedback during the treatment and is free to halt the treatment at any stage. The therapist follows patient feedback, visual and sensory responses.
Treatment may evoke emotion during and after the session.
