Trauma to the fascia can cause severe pain and restrict proper functioning of the body.
Myofacial Release (MFR) is a massage related treatment to relieve strain in the fascia tissue to create a more properly functioning body, a sense of well being and to relieve pain.
The health care professional feels the surface of the body with their hands to determine where the fascial restrictions are located. The fascia does not respond to normal massage techniques as most other muscles, so special pressure is applied by the hands to release these restrictions in the system.
After the restriction is released the patient may feel the release of toxins that were trapped in the organs. Myofascial release is yet another natural therapy to treat the whole person.
