Myofascial Release (MFR) is a specialised physical and manual therapy used for the effective treatment and rehabilitation of soft tissue and fascial aches, pains, tension and restrictions.
It is traditionally accepted that myofascia is the connective tissue (fascia) in and around muscles, where muscles are the powerhouses of locomotion and posture for the body. Myofascial release is, therefore, an application used to alleviate tension, restrictions and adhesions in the myofascia in order to restore balance and function.
Each Myofascial Release treatment session is performed directly on skin without oils, creams or machinery. This enables the accurate detection of fascial restrictions and application of pressure to facilitate release of the fascia.
