Myofascial Release (MFR) in Boston, MA

Fascia is densely woven connective tisue, covering and penetrating every muscle, bone, nerve, artery, vein, internal organs including the heart, lungs, brain and spinal cord. The most interesting aspect of the fascial system is that it is not just a system of separate coverings. It is actually one continuous structure that exists from head to toe without interruption. In this way it has been likened to a spider web or yarn sweater, especially when illustrating the effects of a restriction; when one area is being pulled it will affect the entire neighboring area. Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique involving applying gentle sustained pressure to myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain, restore motion and improve function. MFR is extremely beneficial in treating many conditions including fibromyalgia, TMJ, migraines and cervicogenic headaches, pelvic floor dysfunction, scars and adhering scar tissue, carpal tunnel, back pain, neck pain, postural issues, chronic pain syndrome, whiplash, disc dysfunction and chronic fatigue syndrome.
