Myofascial Release is a very safe and gentle massage technique that involves mild but sustained pressure in order to reduce pain and increase mobility. Myofascial treatment focusses on the facsial system of the body.
Fascia is predominantly collagen and elastin and is densely woven to cover and support every bone, muscle, organ, nerve, artery and vein in the human body. Not only does the fascial system represent individual coverings within the body, it also acts as one continuous structure that covers the body from head to toe. It therefore connects every single element of the body with one common, cell like structure.
At Alternative Body Works, we use Myofascial release as a means of treating every client individually. Our qualified and experienced Myofascial therapists will select a particular Myofascial release technique to best suit an individual situation or need.
Each Myofascial Release treatment is performed on a direct to skin, hands on basis without oily creams. This enables our therapists to more accurately detect restrictions of the fascia and then respond with the appropriate level of sustained pressure to allow the release of the fascia.
Myofascial Release is a particularly useful massage modality in the treatment of back pain and in assisting in greater flexibility of both the spine and its base, being the pelvis.
We often incorporate MR as an important part of a comprehensive remedial massage therapy program for people recovering from serious injuries sustained in car and motor bike accidents. In these cases, Myotherapy can assist in the healing of the facsia, connective tissue, scars and whiplash.
Our Myofascial treatment programs also include home exercises for sustained results focussing on correct posture, strength building and joint mobility.
