What is Myofascial Release?

Myofascial Release (MFR) is a gentle but very deep three dimensional stretching, opening and ungluing of the soft tissue.  It is powerful, effective work that uses sustained pressure, stretching and traction on myofascial restrictions (injured areas, tightness, scars) to eliminate pain, restore motion and improve posture. 
To understand myofascial release, a basic understanding of the fascial system is necessary.  Fascia is a very densely woven connective tissue that surrounds every cell in the body; it is a continuous three dimensional structure that exists from head to foot to fingertips without interruption.  Fascia is a very tough material that gives us our shape, carries nerve impulses and connects each part of the entire body to every other part. In its normal healthy state, the fascia is relaxed and can stretch and move without restriction.  Fascia will lose its pliability and will shorten and glue together as a result of trauma, repetitive movements, emotional stress, or poor posture. Major trauma such as car accidents and surgeries as well as cumulative microtraumas and poor body mechanics will tighten and restrict the fascia causing it to be a source of pain and tension throughout the body.  Since fascia surrounds every cell in the body, when it tights it compresses all of the underlying structures: nerves, bones, organs, everything.
While Myofascial Release may share some features of deep tissue massage it is a modality that reaches deeper and creates lastien chane.  Myofascial Release is imply one of the most effective methods there is for relieving pain, restoring mobility, improving posture and returning the body to a state of wellbeing.

Koryo Hand Therapy

This powerfully effective treatment method may be a part of your session.  Developed by Dr. Tae-Woo Yoo, a highly respected Traditional Oriental Medicine practitioner in South Korea, it uses a complete micro-meridian acupuncture system, analogous to the body accupuncture system.  Small silver pellets are taped onto the part of the hand that corresponds to a part of the body that has pain or stiffness.  The results are immediate, no needles are used, and clients will be given pellets and a treatment protocol to follow at home.  Most people are amazed by this quick, painless, effective therapy.
