Myofascial Release (MFR) in Paignton
Myofascial release work can bring such benefit to clients physically, mentally and emotionally and myofacial release, or MFR, is available as one of the therapies I specialise in here at Heaven on Earth Wellness Therapies.
Myofascial release is a much gentler therapy than massage as it works on the fascia (or connective tissues) rather than the muscles, however don't be fooled by it's gentle nature as it's effect can be great.
Fascia is the body's shock absorber that surrounds and infuses every part of the body in a 3D web like way. The fibres of the fascia can get stuck together over time through everyday movements, poor posture, over work of particular muscles, trauma (physically and emotionally) and many other reasons.
As the fascia is all connected like a web, it is easy to see how when fascia gets stuck together in one area, it can have an affect on other areas of the body too - you may have come across the idea that when you have a pain in your shoulder it could be originating from another area of the body, and this can be why.
Working the fascia using specific, yet gentle techniques, allows for the fascia to come un-stuck and frees up the fascia so that the fluid inside it can flow freely once again. In many cases when we work one area of fascia we can see a ripple effect in the body where the fascia unwinds before our eyes, so the client may notice a feeling of being 'lighter' or even more comfortable in one's skin, in places that they didn't realise had been worked on.
The role of myofascial release in my massage practice, I feel, has potential to really elevate what I'm able to do as a massage therapist to bring even better results - that ultimately aims to make you, the client, feel comfortable in your own skin once again.
Although as a Myofascial Release therapist I am located in Paignton, my practice welcomes clients from far and wide. If you have any questions about MFR, or to book an appointment at my therapy room in Paignton, please do get in touch.
