WHAT IS MYOFASCIAL RELEASE?
Traditional anatomy teach us that the body is made up of a skeleton of bones to which muscles are attached. An alternate view of anatomy is that the body is comprised of a 3-dimensional continuous web, fascia, which envelopes and protects all the organs, muscles, bones, blood vessels and nerves. If restrictions form in the fascia, it can create symptoms in the pain-sensitive structures. These restrictions do not show up in many of the standard tests like x-rays, CAT scans, etc. This may be the missing piece for your chronic condition that is not able to recover with traditional care.
Whenever you experience trauma, either physical or emotional, or perform repetitive motions with improper form and posture, you affect the fascia. You may feel the pain from these restrictions immediately, or it may take years of small restrictions before you feel the pain.
Myofascial Release (MFR) is the ONLY hands-on manual therapy that detects the restricted parts and change the collagen fibers of the body and helps open up the solidified fascia. Traditional therapy, mobilizations, and manipulations only address the elastin.
Sometimes emotions and memories can be trapped in these restrictions which may surface during treatment. You may feel a release somewhere other than the spot where the therapist is working. DON’T WORRY. THIS IS COMPLETELY NORMAL.
