Myofascial Release

What is Myofascial Release (MFR)?

Myofascial Release (MFR) is a specialised, hands-on technique that works gently on soft tissue and fascial

restrictions to eliminate pain and tension to restore motion and flexibility throughout your body.

Myofascial Release is generally a gentle therapy and an effective treatment for many conditions

causing pain and problems with mobility and flexibility. As it is gentle and does not greatly increase

circulation it is suitable for many people who need gentle physical treatments.

When healthy, the fascia is relaxed and allows you to move without restrictions or pain,

helping to provide stability and mobility to your joints.

Your fascia can be damaged through physical and emotional trauma or poor posture.

This damage causes the fascia to become hard and stiff in the affected area, losing its flexibility; pulling any

linked body structures out of alignment; causing you problems with the

stability and mobility of your joints; and causing pain.
