Myofascial Release



Service Description

Be Well Austin’s team of MFR therapists are Expert Level – trained via the John F. Barnes Approach to Myofascial Release – and count among the most advanced and experienced in the state of Texas. Myofascial Release is a very effective hands-on, therapeutic technique that provides gentle sustained pressure into soft tissue tightness in order to un-bind or un-glue fascial restrictions, eliminating pain at its source. Fascia is a three dimensional web of tough connective tissue that extends throughout the body, surrounding and permeating every nerve, muscle, blood vessel, bone, and organ. Trauma resulting from a fall, accident, surgery, repetitive stress/strain, emotional stress, or habitual poor posture can cause the myofascial web to bind, restricting movement and eventually resulting in pain. Myofascial Release incorporates a “wholistic” – or whole body – approach, in which each person is seen as a unique individual. Myofascial Release is safe, gentle, and consistently effective.
