Our bodies are filled with Fascia. In Greek 'Myo' means muscle and 'fascia' means band. It's like a 3D body stocking that weaves its way through the body from head to toe. Like a spiders web it surrounds and penetrats every muscle, bone, artery, vein, nerve and internal organs.

It is continuous with no beginning or end. Made from collagen and elastin fibres, it is surrounded by a fluid called Ground Subtance which acts as a shock absorber. 

 

Fascia is the bodies energy saving device. If you remain in the same position for any lenght of time, it will lay down more collagen, however if you move regulary it will make more elastin and so become more flexiable.

Myofascial Release (MFR) can be especially helpful for people with: 
  • Scoliosis

  • Carpel Tunnel Syndrome

  • Finromyalgia

  • Sciatica

  • Jaw Pain (TJD)

  • Scars

  • Arthritis

  • Poor posture

  • Back pain

  • Headaches

  • Whiplash

  • Migraines

  • Physical & Psycholigical Stress

  • Endomeitrious

​Myofascial Release (MFR)  focuses on the soft tissue dysfunction, while Cranial and Sacral Release, balances the ebb and flow of the Cranial Sacral Fluid that surrounds the central nervous system. Fascia covers us from head to toe. Its what connects and holds us together. And it has memory. 

Often known as 'the missing link' in body work, this is a quick & powerful way of releasing pain, tension and restrictions within the connective tissue, right down to to cellular level.

MYOFASCIAL 

RELEASE

 

In it's normal healthy state it is relaxed and wavy, however if you experience any kind of trauma, either through poor working habits, surgery, an accident, physical or emotional trauma, inflammation or scarring - then fascia will loose it's pliability and become hard, dehydrated and stuck. This is where Myofascial Release comes in. It also has memory, and can release trauma.
