Myofascial release is a hands-on bodywork treatment to restore functional movement, postural alignment and general well-being, enabling the body to function efficiently.
Fascia is a 3D web-like substance that covers everything throughout the entire body; muscles, organs, bones, nerves etc. Its function is to help support each structure as well as preventing friction between them. It can easily be damaged physically and mentally as it is known to store trauma and emotional pain as well as any physical blockages.
Myofascial release (also known as MFR) is a set of techniques that are designed to help release these fascial blockages; tightness and adhesions in particular, by stretching and elongating the fascial tissue to release these restrictions, therefore enabling muscles and joints to function efficiently.
