Restricted Fascia Causes Pain & Dysfunction

Fascia is a continuous web of connective tissue that suspends and protects
everything in the body — muscles, organs, nerves, bones, and more.
Healthy fascia has a gel-like consistency, but injury, surgery, trauma,
or repetitive use can cause areas of it to become dehydrated and restricted.
These restrictions in fascia combine over time and build up tension in the web,
which puts pressure on anything sensitive in its path — like a joint, a nerve, or a muscle.
As a result, we experience pain, limited mobility, and decreased function.

Fascia Does Not Respond
Well to Force

Fascia does not respond well to force. Instead, it braces to protect against that force, which adds further tension into the system.  Foam rolling, deep tissue massage, and other forceful methods stretch out the elastic component of fascia. But just like a stretched out rubber band, that elastic component of the fascia tightens up again. In order to get to the tough collagen component of  fascial restrictions, the tissue requires gentle pressure held over a sustained period of time. This allows the collagen to soften, which leads to lasting change.

Myofascial Release Allows the Body to Heal Itself

MFR gets permanent results by setting the stage for the body to heal. Rather than focusing treatment only at the site of the pain, MFR treats the full system.  Rather than masking symptoms, MFR gets to the source of the problem.  Since fascia connects everything in the body, treating the fascia affects the entirety of the system. Myofascial Release gently accesses even the deepest restrictions in fascia, freeing up your body to heal itself naturally, just as it was designed to do.
