Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective healing technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.

It is essential to use a gentle sustained pressure applied slowly and with conscious awareness to allow the fascia to elongate and relieve pain and symptoms.

Myofascial Release allows us to look at each patient as a unique individual. During our one-on-one virtual therapy, our therapists use a multitude of MFR techniques and movement therapy.

We promote healing through education in proper body mechanics and movement, self therapy instruction, improved strength, flexibility and awareness.
Fascia is a specialized system of the body that has an appearance similar to a spider's web. Fascia is a very densely woven, covering that interpenetrates every muscle, bone, nerve, artery, vein and organ including the heart, lungs, brain and spinal cord.

The most interesting aspect of the fascial system is that it is not just a system of separate coverings.

Fascia is actually one continuous structure that exists from head to toe without interruption. Each part of the entire body is connected to every other part of the body by the fascia.

Fascia plays an important role in the support and function of our bodies, since it surrounds and attaches to all structures. Healthy fascia is relaxed and wavy in configuration. It can stretch and move freely without restriction or pain.

When one experiences physical or emotional trauma, scarring, or inflammation, the fascia loses its pliability. It becomes a tight, restricted source of tension to the rest of the body.

Traumas, such as falls, car accidents, whiplash, surgery, poor posture or repetitive stress have cumulative effects on the body. The changes trauma causes in the fascial system causes pain and dysfunction.

Fascial restrictions can exert excessive pressure causing all kinds of symptoms producing pain, headaches or restriction of motion.

Fascial restrictions affect our flexibility and stability, and our ability to withstand stress and perform daily activities.

It is imperative that we take care of our fascia if we want to have good health and mobility.
