MYOFASCIAL RELEASE (MFR)
60 Mins $135
Myofascial Release (MFR) is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. This essential “time element” has to do with the viscous flow and the piezoelectric phenomenon: a low load (gentle pressure) applied slowly will allow a viscoelastic medium (fascia) to elongate.
Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create Myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures that do not show up in many of the standard tests (x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.)
The use of Myofascial Release allows us to look at each patient as a unique individual. Our one-on-one therapy sessions are hands-on treatments during which our therapists use a multitude of Myofascial Release techniques and movement therapy. We promote independence through education in proper body mechanics and movement, self treatment instruction, enhancement of strength, improved flexibility, and postural and movement awareness.
Each Myofascial Release Treatment session is performed directly on skin without oils, creams or machinery. This enables the therapist to accurately detect fascial restrictions and apply the appropriate amount of sustained pressure to facilitate release of the fascia to help improve nerves, tendons, muscle groups and Joints that are associated with different types of chronic pain issues and has proven benefits in following conditions;
Back Pain, Headaches, Whiplash, Pelvic Pain, Neck Pain, Sports Injuries, Chronic Pain, Disc Problems, Migraines, Pelvic Floor Dysfunction,Hip Problems, Neurological Dysfunction, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Adhesions, Carpal Tunnel, Jaw Pain (TMJ), Painful Scars, Scoliosis, Sciatica, Myofascial Pain Syndrome, Achilles/ Knees Tendinitis, Tennis Elbow, Frozen Shoulder, Rotator Cuff injuries, Post-Surgical Pain and Muscle Spasticity, Regional Pain Syndrome (RSD), Neuropathy, Thoracolumbar Fascia Pain.
This uplifting treatment is designed to improve blood circulation, range of motion relieve pain and stressed.
