Myo = muscle.
Fascia = connective tissue.
MyoFascial Release (MFR) is a therapy that frees up muscle that has become bound by connective tissue, which is the same material as scar tissue.
Fascia is the soft tissue component of the connective tissue that provides support and protection for most structures within the human body, including muscle. This soft tissue can become restricted due to poor posture, overuse, trauma, injury, illness, or inactivity, often resulting in pain, muscle tension, and corresponding diminished blood flow. Although fascia and its corresponding muscle are the main targets of myofascial release, other tissue may be affect as well, including other connective tissue.
This will be a deeply healing and profound practice that communicates with the outer layers of the body and then navigates deeply inward to the more subtle body. When we introduce new more organic movements, we can help to build a more refined ‘brain map’ because we give a different quality of attention toward the deeper layers of the body. This in turn builds new neural pathways, consequently offering new patterns of being to the body and mind.
