Myofascial Release is a technique that focuses on treating the cause of your pain rather than just the symptoms. By using different cross hand release techniques, the patient has an opportunity to heal on a very deep level without the therapist inflicting pain or force. Most of the techniques would be considered less invasive than deep tissue massage.
There can be a sense of weightlessness within the body during these sessions. The Myofascial therapist is focusing on melting the connective tissue that is holding the tension that is creating the pain cycle deep within us. The therapist takes gravity out of the situation to heal the patient more effectively.
Myofascial Release can be useful for a variety of limitations and traumas, including: sports injuries (I.e) skiing/basketball/running, anxiety or insomnia, car accident injuries, and chronic pain of all kinds.
Myofascial Release also focuses on releasing trapped energy from the patient’s body. The proper facilitation of energy can clear blockages we’ve had stored inside our tissue for years and even lifetimes. It is a great way to get your energy flowing properly.
Sometimes during sessions you can feel pulsations in your tissue and that is the actual release of the muscle fibers and connective tissue that have been holding onto tension for so long. Also you can feel a sense of weightlessness or an uplifting feeling. Sometimes the sensation can be painful, but that is considered therapeutic pain and a normal sensation during the session.
Our bodies were created in a liquid state and over time traumas and external circumstances force or bodies to harden. With MFR your body has an opportunity to return to its liquid state. We are liquid crystals and they’re visible within every cell of our body.
