Myofacial Release is a system of bodywork that evaluate the fascia such as osteopathic methods, craniosacral therapy, structural integration and physical therapy. MFR is a manual physical therapy that treats pain, tension and dysfunction. Myo means ‘muscle’ and ‘fascia’ is the connective tissue network. Fascia is a three dimensional network that extends without interruption from the top of the head to the tips of the toes. It’s a tensegrity (tension and integrity) network that’s in constant tension and compression in order to retain function and balance. This network supports the bones, muscles, organs and vessels right down to the cellular level. Fascia is responsible for maintaining structural balance, providing support and protection, and acting as a shock absorber. Fascia, like muscle, has the ability to contract and relax but, unlike muscle, fascial restrictions creep insidiously throughout the entire network affecting the function of the whole structure, eventually creating the pain that we call symptoms. These symptoms include muscular strains, trigger points and joint dysfunction.

Most psychologists treat the mind as disembodied, a phenomenon with little or no connection to the physical body. Conversely physicians treat the body with no regard to the mind or emotions. But the body and mind are not separate, and we cannot treat one without the other.Candace Pert
