Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release – hands on sideMyofascial Release (MFR) – is a powerful and effective treatment to relieve pain, release restrictions, tension, imbalances and holding patterns in the body. The fascia is a continuous three dimensional network in the body that connects us from head to toe. Surrounding and infusing muscles, ligaments, tendons, bones, tissues and organs, it is the body’s shock absorber. Fascia can become restricted through injury, trauma, poor posture, repetitive movements and inflammation. MFR can help with so many symptoms it’s hard to list them all but here’s an example – frozen shoulder, headaches / migraines, tinnitus, backache, pelvic pain, tight hamstrings, sports injuries, scar tissue, pregnancy discomfort, fibromyalgia, prolapse, trauma.

I’m currently studying towards a diploma in Myofascial Release and my charges reflect this with a lower rate of £20 an hour.

Sessions can be 1  / 1.5 / 2 hours. First session including consultation is a minimum of 1.5 hours

Scar Tissue Release

Myofascial Release – scar

Myofascial release techniques specifically for scars to reduce pain, improve movement, sensitivity & relieve numbness. Scar tissue can cause pain & restriction, adhesions, affect movement of fluid through the body and affect the function of organs & the muskuloskeletal system leading to imbalance. Damage to body tissues can have implications years later and the connection to current symptoms may not be obviously connected with the scar. Scars can be from various causes – surgical incisions such as caesarean section and appendectomy; key hole surgery; traction; adhesions; burns; tears; inflammation & more.

Scar tissue release can be a stand alone treatment or included as part of a Mizan Therapy treatment (eg for caesarean scars or adhesions from endometriosis), Postnatal Recovery Massage or a general Myofascial Release treatment.
