Myofascial Release (MFR) is a manual or hands on technique that involves loosening up the fascia. Fascia is the thin connective tissue that surrounds our muscles and tendons. Fascia also surrounds all nerves, blood vessels and organs. MFR releases restrictions in the fascia that will inhibit normal mobility and function. Abnormal tension in the myofascial tissues alters biomechanical efficiency and contributes to compensatory and painful movement patterns. MFR releases tensions and promotes normal biomechanical movements and reduces pain. It is a very gentle technique.
