About Myofascial Release Therapy(MFR)
A slightly mobile connective tissue which is derived embryologically from the mesoderm. It’s composed of an elasto-collagenous complex, including a matrix or ground substance which transports metabolic material through the body.
It creates three dimensional web which extends continuously from the top of the head to the tip of the toes, without interruption. It surrounds and infuses with every organ, muscle, bone, nerve and blood vessel all the way down to the cellular level.
Fascia responds to the constant changes a body goes through. Fascia responds to workload, physical injury, emotional injury, posture, pain, surgery and many things the human body deals with daily. If left untreated, Fascia can change it's free flowing form to a very viscous, dense form which can cause immense pressure on the body and all internal organs. The loss of fascial mobility produces a drag on the fascial system which manifests as abnormal alteration in the cranial physiological motion.
Myofascial release works by using gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. Timing is an important part of true myofascial release as it impacts the viscous flow and the piezoelectric phenomenon. This gentle pressure allows for fascial tissue to elongate and gives it great ability to reshape and support the body.
