MyOfascial Release Therapy

MRT

MyOfascia relieve therapy provides gentle sustained pressure on the myofascial connective tissues to eliminate pain and restore motion. Our method of MRT provides gentle re-alignment of collagin fibers in a pattern to allow maximum strength and function. Fascia is thin tissue which covers all the organs of the body and cannot be separated from muscle when working to release pain and constriction. Trauma from repetitive muscle stress (working out daily or on similar muscle groups repeatedly) may impact fascia causing restriction. Massage releases the constricted fascia to relieve associated back, neck, shoulder, elbow, IT band, carpal tunnel, fasciaiitis plantar as well as achilles tendon strain often found in runners and cyclists, computer works and weight trainers.
