Frequently Asked Questions
What is Myofascial Release?
Why is MFR so effective?
Once these restrictions are noted, specialized techniques are used to slowly release these fascial restrictions until it changes from a hardened glue-like consistency to that of a gel. If these restrictions are not addressed then pain, decreased range of motion and distorting postural imbalances result. The majority of clients that finally discover MFR have been through multiple tests, procedures and physical therapy programs with little or short-lasting results while drug after drug has been used to address the symptoms. Myofascial Release addresses the cause. Therefore, healing may ensue instead of chasing symptoms from session to session.
What do I wear to my sessions?
We recommend women bring a sports bra and loose-fitting shorts or a two-piece bathing suit. Men need to bring a pair of loose-fitting shorts. Most treatments are done with these treatment clothes on but if you don’t have them your therapist will either treat in your street clothes or step out of the treatment area, allow you to undress to your comfort level and have you covered with a sheet throughout the duration of the session.
How often should I get treatment?
How many sessions will I need?
My goal is to empower you in your process and not keep you dependent on coming to me every week. Throughout your time with me I will continue to reassess your treatment goals and needs. In all cases, client follow-through with their home self treatment routine greatly increases their progress.
How do I get started?
Why am I in pain?
Myofascial Release can release the pressures created by the fascial system and create the possibility of returning each individual to her or his full, pain-free capacity.
