Myofascial Release (MFR) is different than traditional massage and involves applying gentle, sustained pressure into fascial restrictions to eliminate pain and restore function. In order to not engage the body's protective responses, pressure is slowly and gently applied to fascial restrictions to elongate and rehydrate the fascia. It is effective for long-term treatment of pain and dysfunction in the body.

It is incredible to witness the change, hope and relief my clients often experience when they are able to let go of the pain they've experienced for so long and return to the activities of a life they love. I look forward to working with you on your journey to a pain-free you!

Treatment

Myofascial Release (MFR) involves applying gentle, sustained pressure into fascial restrictions to eliminate pain and restore function. To disengage the body's protective responses, pressure is slowly and gently applied to fascial restrictions. Pressure is then sustained until a release is felt by the therapist or client, often a mimimum of three to five minutes. It is effective for long-term treatment of pain and dysfunction in the body.

Your restrictions are unique to you and have developed according to the individual experiences your body has had throughout your life. The number and frequency of treatments will be unique to you. However, in general MFR is particularly effective when sessions are grouped as close together as possible (such as 2 treatments per week). Many people receive several MFR treatments within a short time to address a specific concern, then receive “MFR maintenance” sessions every few weeks to months.

Conditions Treated
What is Fascia?

Trauma (falls, accidents, physical and emotional abuse), irregular posture, lack of motion, inflammatory reactions (autoimmune conditions, illnesses, and disease), surgical procedures, and the effects of gravity on a misaligned body can create restrictions in the fascial system. These life experiences can solidify your connective tissue, creating symptoms of pain, decreased range of motion, fatigue, feelings of achiness, and imbalance.

MFR can help the following conditions and many more! 

  • Back, Neck or Hip Pain

  • Adhesions and Scar Tissue from injury or surgery

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome 

  • Arthritis Pain

  • TMJ Pain

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Migraines/Headaches

Your fascia is a web of connective tissue that envelops, supports, and protects every structure in your body. It exists from head to toe as one continuous, uninterrupted system. When you injure yourself, you also injure your interconnected fascial tissue, causing it to tighten and dehydrate forming restrictions. Due to the continuous nature of your fascia, the restrictions in one part of the body affect the tissue and structures in other parts, including muscles, joints, nerves, blood vessels, and even your organs. Often the pain you feel in one place originates elsewhere in your body.

In accordance with current CDC guidance, face coverings are optional in the clinic and during your session at this time.

My deepest concern is to keep you protected and safe; however, even with all of my mitigation efforts, bodywork involves maintained touch and close physical proximity over an extended period of time, there may be an elevated risk of disease transmission, including COVID-19.
