When Massage Isn't Enough
What is Myofascial Release?
Unlike traditional massage, Myofascial-Release Therapy (MFR) uses deep, sustained pressure to gently release areas of bound and dysfunctional connective tissue. Tight and painful muscles are slowly stretched, allowing the effects of injuries, scar tissue, and over-used or atrophied muscles to finally relax and begin to heal.
Over a series of sessions, Myofascial-Release will speed the healing process, creating comfort, improved range-of-motion, and pain-relief throughout the entire system. Conditions you thought you would just “have to live with” can be reversed, and the areas restored. When all else fails, Myofascial-Release Therapy can help.

Frequently Asked Questions!
In the various forms of “traditional” massage, the goal is to relax the muscles and also detoxify the body, reducing stress, improving general health, and providing a temporary relief from pain. However, non of these forms of massage seeks to alter and change the structure of the connective tissue, AKA: Fascia. Massage does a wonderful job at relaxing the muscles, but until the underlying dysfunctional fascia is healed, the chronic problems quite often will return time and time again, even with constant massage. Myofascial-Release (MFR) is the solution.
Yes and No. Myofascial-Release is a very slow, deliberate technique. The therapist puts moderate pressure into the area of fascial restriction, then waits. Soon, the piezoelectric response kicks in, and the fascia begins to shift and release. When this happens, there are several sensations people can feel in the area, ranging from a “tingling” sensation to a fairly mild “burn”. Never will the clients feel shooting or excruciating pain. At anytime during the session you feel the therapists needs to lighten the pressure, you need only say “stop” and the therapist will stop immediately. You will never be asked to sustain more pressure than you are able.
The mechanics of myofascial-release will cause an inflammatory response in the system. This is not to be confused with other types of aggressive or deep massage, where the client leaves the session feeling like they “got hit by a truck”. The soreness from MFR is similar to the soreness you may have experienced after working out too hard. Soreness is the body’s response to change. Ironically – unlike other forms of deep massage, the cure for this soreness is to get more MFR! Subsequent sessions will break up remaining fascial restrictions, and the inflammation will quickly subside.
