Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release (MFR) is a technique that creates a deep stretch in the tissue to free chronic tension from the body. Used as the primary technique in Rolfing, ART, and other advanced therapies, MFR is excellent for improving posture, reducing tension-related pain, and better overall movement. This technique is used in our Deep Tissue Massage, Bodywork Therapy and Sports Recovery sessions where needed.

What is Myofascial Release?

Myofascial release is a fast-growing form of massage and manual therapy that targets the fascial layers of the body, releasing long standing tension in the muscles and joints, which helps release chronic pain, tension, and stress within the body. Slowly stretching the tissue in a variety of directions with passive and active movement helps to make these changes stick long term and provides the long term pain and tension relief people seek with massage therapy.

As your body develops tension over the years, patterns of tension emerge that can include multiple areas of body. The result of these tense myofascial patterns is the development of pain throughout the body that is rooted elsewhere. This is often the reason why pain and symptoms can be difficult to release and requires a skilled practitioner that can assess the pattern, discover the root cause and release it for long term relief.

Some key benefits of myofascial release include:

  • Pain relief
  • Ease of tension
  • Postural correction
  • Better range of motion
  • Better aging
  • More energy
  • Increased body confidence
  • Better embodiment
  • Stronger mind-body connection

All of our second level therapists here at body heal are highly trained in myofascial release as well as how to assess your body’s patterns and how to get to the root of the problem.  This technique is utilized by our therapists in every Body Heal Therapy session whether it is Bodywork or Sports Recovery. Our therapists are thorough and attentive and believe that the work does not have to be painful to be effective.   If you are seeking a wonderful, engaging experience that leads to better movement, less pain, and more energy, then Body Heal Therapy is just what you’re looking for.

If the therapist does require credit card information to hold the appointment then that therapist will contact you to get that information so that they can put it securely in Square.

If you cancel within 24 hours of the appointment or do not show up for the appointment then half of the price of the session will be charged to the card on file.

BODY HEAL Therapy is a holistic approach to pain relief. Since the human body moves as a unit, rather than in individual pieces, we often compromise for repetitive patterns and postures with unrelenting tension in other areas that can cause pain. By addressing these patterns, we can go beyond providing temporary help to the area causing discomfort, and instead, treat the root cause with lasting results.
