MYOFASCIAL RELEASE THERAPY
WHAT IS MYOFASCIAL RELEASE? AND WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR?
A PAIN-FREE type of bodywork that is focused on releasing tension or pain (restrictions) in the body. When these restrictions are present, the internal framework of the body becomes restricted in movement, and your movement can become impaired or simply.. uncomfortable! You can feel stiff or tight. The goal is to release those restrictions, restoring proper overall musculoskeletal function to the body.
DO YOU HAVE AN AREA ON THE BODY THAT IS ALMOST ALWAYS TIGHT, EVEN AFTER A GREAT MASSAGE??
ARE YOUR SHOULDERS UP TO YOUR EARS??
DO YOU FEEL LIKE YOUR SHOULDERS KEEP ROLLING FORWARD??
DO YOU FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE A HARD TIME STANDING UP STRAIGHT DUE TO ‘BAD POSTURE’?
IS YOUR NECK SUPER STIFF??
DO YOU HAVE LIMITED MOVEMENT (ROM) AFTER A SURGERY??
DO YOU HAVE AN AREA ANYWHERE ON THE BODY THAT IS PAINFUL??
If you answered, “Yes!” to any of the above then you owe it to yourself to try a MFR session.
There is no oil or cream used on the body for MFR, since the skin needs to stay dry. You do not have to get completely undressed when receiving this type of therapy, if at all.
*My MFR approach is in the style of Walt Fritz, PT (Rochester, NY), who has been my CE Instructor for the past few years. Walt is a world-renowned teacher in the field of Myofascial Release Therapy.
