Myofacial Release or MFR is designed to erasethe accumulation of trauma that resides in your bodies fascia. It works by releasing the emotional and physical trauma.
Fascia has many roles in the body. Fascia is your bodies protector or shock absorber. It prtects, separates, and connects your bones, muscles, blood, organs and nerves. Ligaments and tendons are also considered fascia, just thicker versions of fascia.
As you age, your fascia remembers the accumulations of the traumas of everyday life (repetative automated behaviors: bad posture, or vocations that have repetative movements, etc..) and becomes brittle, dehydrated, and creates adhesions.
When fascia becomes adhesed to itself, it strangles nerves which cause pain. It inhibits blood flow to your muscles bones, organs, nerves, and your body goes into deprivation and reaction mode, never resting or healing itself. This is bad because blood nourishes with nutrients, water, and oxygen needed for pain-free life.
Adhesions strangle muscles which causes restriction, immobilization, and pain. Adhesions strangle organs which begin to break down due to restricted blood flow (less nourishment). Adhesions restrict blood flow causing a weakened area and opens up itself to injuries. It can be as minor as a mild pain (a signal from your brain alerting you there's a problem to be dealt with), mobility restrictions, intense pain, headaches, numbness, extreme sensitivites, loss of movement, like involutary contraction (avoiding imminent threat; like a dog bite or something hurling towards you), fear, relationship stress. etc..
Having consistent sessions (because this is not a one and done) of MFR is so important.
Hope to see you on my table soon!
