Myofascial Release

Why this resource is helpful:

Quoted From: https://www.portlandmfr.com/how-treatment-works

"Myofascial Release is a hands-on treatment performed on the skin with no oils or creams. The gentle tension between the therapist"s hands and the patient"s skin is what allows access to the fascia in a way that the gliding effect of traditional massage cannot achieve. MFR incorporates many new types of body manipulation to improve movement and function.

For example, one technique to relieve restrictions in the lower back is a cross-hand technique, with one hand on the crest of the hip and the other on the lower ribs. Your therapist"s hands will sink into the fascia and then move away from one another without sliding on the skin. Sustained, gentle force allows the fascia to release in a slow, non-linear manner. The release will allow the therapist to then follow the body"s cues to the next area. MFR does not simply treat your symptoms.It allows us to work together to find the spiral of restrictions causing your pain."
