MFR is a safe and very effective technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and tension and restore motion in the body.
Fascial restrictions are more common than you may think. They develop after injuries or surgery, as a result of poor posture or following trauma, whether physical or emotional. Yes, your body remembers emotional trauma. Fascial restrictions will not only exert an enormous amount of pressure on the tissue it surrounds, causing pain, but will also limit range of motion, cause muscular imbalances and changes in posture throughout the body. Over time the pressure and pulling going on internally manifests as chronic pain, or “over use” injuries.
MFR is a holistic approach to decreasing pain and restoring function in the body.
