First Place in Healing
How to Get the Most out of your MFR
Myofascial Release healing works, period, if you are willing to do the work. If you are willing to put the time and effort in, feel the sensations and feelings (even the really tough ones), if you are willing to dare to let go, soften into the pain and allow yourself to change you will heal.
If you leave your treatment and don’t think about what came up for you on the table the rest of the day you’ll miss a big opportunity for healing. The treatment is just the beginning. It’s like someone giving you a push on the swings They get you going then it’s up to you to lean in to it and see how far you can get with what they gave you and your own determination. So pay attention to how you feel in the hours/next few days after your treatment. Do you get achy, feel: calmer, anxious, sad, angry, or think of events or persons from your past you haven’t thought of in a long time, etc. Notice what changes.
To get the best results from your MFR treatments:
Pain, discomfort, emotions, this is how your body communicates with you. These are the only ways it has to tell you what is going on inside yourself. Instead of shutting your body up or ignoring it, MFR teaches you how to listen to your body and gives you the tools to then deal with whatever it is your body needs. You have pain, lack of mobility, anxiety, sadness, rage, Myofascial Release gives you real tools to deal with these issues, not mask them or talk about them but instead to work them out and finally move on and live fully.
My first MFR therapist used to say “healing is not a passive event, it is an active sport”. And like any other sport, if you want that gold medal in healing you’ll have to carve out the time, put your heart in to it and give it your all and you will win!
