Myofascial Release Therapy
The fascia (connective tissue) is a web like structure, which encases the musculoskeletal system, nerves, blood vessels and organs, within the body. Restrictions within the fascia can be created by a number of factors, such as illness, injury, scar tissue, stress, repetitive movement patterns and poor posture.
Myofascial Release Therapy (MRT) is a gentle hands on, soft tissue technique, applying sustained pressure to stretch and ease tension held in the fascia. The release of the restrictions improves movement and function, by restoring space and glide ability, within the body. This in turn can reduce associated aches and pains. If appropriate, recommendations on postural change, ergonomics, functional movement, yoga based exercise and self myofascial release techniques, can be made.
$70 = 1hr session
$60 = 45min session
$200 = 3 x 1hr sessions (pre-paid)
If you have long standing discomfort or restrictions of movement, it recommended that you have a minimum of 3 sessions to allow your body to respond to the MRT.
Example of conditions, which may be assisted by MRT:
- TMJ (jaw pain)
- Headaches and migraines
- Postural aches and pain
- Stress and anxiety
- Breathing inefficiencies
- Carpal Tunnel
- Plantar Fasciitis
Myofascial Release Therapy and Yoga
To compliment Myofascial Release Therapy, one on one yoga practice can be included in sessions. This further assists, with re-establishing healthy movement patterns and promoting a relaxed state. No previous yoga experience required.
