What does the term "Myofascia" mean?

The prefix "myo" means muscle and "fascia" means connective tissue.  Connective tissue is any tissue that connects, supports, binds, or separates other tissues or organs.  When we talk about the Myofascial System we are talking about the synergistic nature of muscles and connective tissue throughout the body.   

What is Myofascial Release (MFR)?

Myofascial Release is a different approach to hands on therapy that evaluates and treats the whole body.  MFR works with the body to help heal itself and recover from past injuries and traumas.  This is accomplished by using sustained pressure and stretching of the Fascia to relieve Fascial restrictions, (knots, trigger points, adhesions, areas of tightness, etc.) which can alleviate pain and increase range of motion.  Once pain is relieved, the body begins to return homeostasis (its natural resting state) which in turn relaxes the body and mind, and helps to promote a more restful sleep.

 

Is Myofascial Release similar to a Swedish or deep tissue massage?

No, MFR is significantly different than traditional massages.  It is a hands-on therapy that works on the structure of the entire body.  While Swedish massage focuses on a relaxing touch, working the entire body head to toe the techniques used are quick and superficial.  Deep Tissue massage is more therapeutic than Swedish massage.  It uses deep pressure focusing on areas of pain and the surrounding structures.  Most times this deep pressure causes clients to tense up and hold their breath during the techniques.  This style of massage is trying to force healing rather then working with the body to heal itself.

 

What should I wear for a session?

For your sessions please wear loose fitting gym shorts.  Women should also wear a sports bra or bathing suit top.  Prior to a session, please avoid putting anything on the skin such as lotion or oil.  These products can make it difficult to work on the Fascia without sliding on the skin.

 

What can I expect after treatment?

Occasionally after a session of Myofascial Release there can be slight soreness or discomfort around the areas of treatment.  Since Fascia reaches all throughout the body, you may also experience soreness in areas that were not touched.
