Myofascial release technique (MFR) is one of the gentle types of massage therapy that can provide you with great health benefits. MFR can be integrated with other types of massage or can provide a complete treatment on its own.
Fascia is a thin connective tissue that surrounds your muscles and organs. You can think of it as an uninterrupted web. It helps hold organs in place and helps them hold their shape. Fascia gives a lot of support to your body and when it is bound up it can cause dysfunction in organs and muscles.
Myofascial release techniques loosens bound areas of fascia by gently stretching them. The therapist does this by applying pressure and traction to the shin. When the releases are formed on you.You will usually feel a stretching sensation on your skin like a gentle tug. Sometimes the area will itch. Sometimes it will tingle or feel like a burn. These sensations are letting you know that blood is getting to the area.
MFR can be used to treat these conditions:
