Myofascial Release (MFR) & Structural Alignment

Fascia is a tough connective tissue that spreads throughout the body in a three dimensional web and covers every muscle, fiber, nerve, organ, and bone. When the the soft tissues in our body become compromised or strained in some way, it can contribute to possible pain or dysfunction in our body.

Myofascial treatment (often called Myofascial Release) is an excellent hands-on, whole body approach for the evaluation and treatment of the soft tissue structures (sometimes referred to as the myofascial system). Physical trauma, inflammatory or infectious responses, and postural or structural dysfunction may all cause inappropriate strains on this system.

The list of benefits of Myofascial Release is extensive. MFR may help manage acute and chronic pain, neurological and structural concerns, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, digestive disorders, lower back and neck pain, birth trauma (mom and baby), pelvic/menstrual problems, headaches, TMJ syndrome, sports injuries, restricted motion, or simply just wanting to improve ease of movement.
