Myofascial Release (MFR) is a safe, oil-free approach that seeks to restore balance in the body by releasing tension in the soft connective tissue in the body known as fascia. It brings relief from pain and restores range of movement. The term Myofascial (is from the Greek “myo” for muscle and “fascia” the connective tissue).

Fascia surrounds every cell, organ, bone and structure in the body, including muscles, groups of muscles, blood vessels and nerves. Fascia can become constricted due to traumas  such as illness, infections, inactivity and other physical and psychological stresses. When tight, or stuck, it can pull muscles and bones out of alignment or restrict movement, resulting in pain and lack of mobility.  

The aim of this therapy is to stretch and mobilise the fascia, releasing any areas where it is ‘sticking’ or constricted, causing pain and restricted movement. The therapist applies gentle sustained pressure to stretch the fascia. This removes tightness and associated pain and discomfort. Strokes are deliberately slow and can be for a minimum of 90 to 120 seconds and sometimes can last as long as 5 minutes. The pressures used are gentle but firm.

Myofascial Release can be especially effective in providing longer-term relief for chronic pain and dysfunction associated with muscular tightness, including neck, jaw and back pain, muscle tension, recurring injuries, scoliosis and stress-related disorders.
