What is Myofascial Release?

Does your shoulder hurt, and you can’t move it like you used to? Maybe you feel a sharp pain when you stretch, or just a general tightness that won’t go away?

A manual therapy technique called Myofascial Release could be the treatment for you.

What is Myofascial release (MFR)?
An effective massage therapy technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the connective tissue surrounding the muscles to eliminate pain and restore motion.

Fascia is a spider web type tissue surrounding each and every muscle. Sometimes it becomes “stuck” or restricted. Typical massage techniques focuses on just the muscles, however MFR strictly focuses on this spider web like tissue to stretch it out. With subtle and sustained pressure, your pain and discomfort can melt away.

Ask your therapist specifically about receiving Myofascial Release within your next session at The Therapy Centers.
