Myofascial Tissue Release
MFR is a specialised physical and manual therapy used for the effective treatment and rehabilitation of soft tissue, fascial tension and restrictions.
Myofascial (pronounced Myo fashal) is connective tissue, a 3D continuous web of elastin and collagen fibres surrounded by a viscous fluid called the ground substance. These two fibre types allow it to be very strong yet have a high degree of flexibility. Fascia surrounds every other tissue, tendon, muscle, bone, ligament and organ of the body. In healthy conditions the fascial system is relaxed and wavy in configuration, providing a cushioning and supportive mechanism allowing us to move safely without restriction or pain.
Following all physical and emotional trauma, and through poor posture, fascia scars and hardens in the affected site and along the tension lines imposed on it. This causes the fascial network to lose its cushioning mechanism and internal structures become pulled out of alignment. This in turn creates an abnormal pressure, crushing nerves, blood and lymphatic vessels and further creating tension on adjacent, pain-sensitive, structures and those along the fascial pull. Fascial restrictions do not show up on CAT scans, MRI’s or X-Rays therefore many patients are suffering unresolved physical and emotional pain, due to undiagnosed fascial trauma. MFR uses a whole body approach to treat the cause of pain at the deepest level.
