" I adjust the treatment to an individual's needs during the hour or 90 min sessions we have here at the clinic. Having the knowledge of a number of techniques also helps to address patients injuries from as many angles as possible in order to achieve the best results ( whether it's headache, stress, muscle tension or simply the need to relax).
Myofascial release is a specialized treatment that releases restrictions within the fascia network (connective tissue), enabling stuck, hardened and dehydrating areas to become pliable, soft, mobile and hydrated.
What is Fascia?
Fascia is the body"s energy saving device. If your posture remains the same for any length of time, the fascia will bind and lay down more collagen. However if you are moving regularly, then the collagen will take up more elastin therefore becoming more flexible.
If the body experiences any kind of trauma (poor postural habits, surgery, a fall, emotional trauma......) fascia will lose it's pliability and can become hard, dehydrated and stuck. This leads to restrictions, limitations of movement and poor tissue heatlh.
MFR is a hands on, manual therapy focusing on soft tissue dysfunction, pain and tension.
The client may or may not to feel much happening, but will feel relaxed and will feel freer or lighter after the treatment.
