I offer an energetic approach to Myofascial Release

 

This approach overlaps Cranial Sacral Therapy techniques with Myofascial Release.

Myofascial release (MFR) is a manual therapy that uses light, sustained pressure and gentle holds in order to relieve tension in the connective-tissue (fascia).

Cranial sacral therapy (CRT) is a method that feels for movement of the fluids in the spine and cranium, which helps release tension in the central nervous system.

I don't advertise other services because I want to expose people to MFR—it's a lot different than other therapies. After clients have made progress through consecutive MFR treatments, I'm happy to integrate other modalities, if requested. 

Myofascial Release for embodiment

MFR creates the feeling of spaciousness in the joints and tissues.

 

Having the freedom to instinctively move during treatments helps you feel into your body. 

Myofascial Release compliments other somatic exercises such as, breathwork, yoga, and meditation. 

Myofascial Release for trauma 

Trauma and stress leave physiological imprints (muscle memory).

 

MFR helps purge what the body is storing; the related feelings, or tension.

 

Myofascial release complements psychotherapy, EMDR and biofeedback therapy.  

 

Myofascial Release for pain and discomfort

Myofascial release compliments physical therapy, chiropractic and massage.  

Treatable symptoms include, but aren't limited to: whiplash, lower back pain, fibromyalgia . . .

Myofascial release is great for eliminating migriane and chronic neck tension.

What to expect

Myofascial Release is mostly about sensory awareness—feel into it. 

 

I use sustained compression, decompression, and long holds, unlike massage which uses steady movements.

MFR has a cumulative effect, and progress is made through successive treatments.
