Service Description

Myofascial Release (MFR) is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. The effects of this release technique require longer holds than massage. A low load (gentle pressure) applied slowly will allow the viscoelastic medium (fascia) to elongate. Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create Myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures that do not show up in many of the standard tests (x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.) Swedish massage is the most popular type of massage. It involves the use of hands, forearms or elbows to manipulate the superficial layers of the muscles to improve mental and physical health. Active or passive movement of the joints may also be part of the massage. The benefits of Swedish massage include increased blood circulation, mental and physical relaxation, decreased stress and muscle tension, and improved range of motion. Physical benefits: There are numerous physical benefits associated with the use of Swedish massage including loosening tight muscles and stretching connective tissues, relieving cramps and muscle spasms and decreasing muscle fatigue. Loosen joints and improve range of motion, increase muscle strength. Calm the nervous system. Firm up muscle and skin tone.
