Myofascial Release (MFR)
MFR is a deep release treatment, working with your body, rather than against it, giving it the support and assistance to achieve the best results possible.
This gentle yet effective treatment method works with the soft tissue in our bodies, known as fascia. This web like structure surrounds, infuses and supports every cell of our body, protecting it from trauma.
When trauma does occur, this protective system can become like a straightjacket of tension and pain, causing up to approximately 2000 pounds of pressure per square inch!
