MFR or Myofascial Release is part of Remedial Therapy.
The concept behind MFR is that the Fascia is a separate structure on its own and connects skin to muscle tissue and organs.
Fascia is made up of fibrous connective tissue in a wavy pattern making it extremely flexible. And myofascial lines run from the bottom of the body to the top connecting everything so it only makes sense that if this wavy pattern is stretched or pulled into a linear form due to injury, accident, chronic overuse or inflammation resulting in adhesion's and stiff affecting skin, muscle, organs and deeper layers in our body.
If the Fascia is stiff or tight Muscles can't relax fully.
Whilst regular massage technique work on muscle a special technique is needed to promote healing of the fascia. Chronic muscle tension that doesn't improve after several massage treatment may need a MFR treatment. MFR is Health fund approved.
