What is MYOFASCIAL RELEASE (MFR)
Myofascial RELEASE relieves soft tissue restrictions that cause pain, stress, tension..
It is a type of safe, low load stretch that releases tightness and pain throughout the body caused by Myofascial pain syndrome, which describes chronic muscle pain that is worse in certain areas known as trigger points. Myofascial Release treats the entire Myofascial mind/body complex eliminating the pressure of the restricted Myofascial system that causes the symptoms.
Myofascial Release is a hands-on application meant to stretch, loosen & soften the fascia tissue. Each stroke is applies gentle pressure for a minimum of 5 minutes. It assists in relieving skeletal muscle immobility and pain, improving blood & lymphatic circulation.
