Our Fascial System
Each and everyone of us, is comprised of a unique, 3D endless web of connective tissue. This tissue can also be reffered to as our "fascial system". It is our only whole body system, continously from head to toe. Trauma, posture, or inflammation can create a binding down on our pain sensitive structures such as nerves, muscles and more.
What is MFR?
Myofascial Release is a gentle hands-on therapy that applies gentle “pressure” or “stretch” to areas of tightness. It is performed directly on the skin without the use of oils, creams or lotions. This prevents any “sliding” from happening when treating the area of concern. Each hand placement is sustained for at least 5 minutes until the tissue releases. Upon release, pressure is removed from pain sensitive structures allowing freedom of movement and improved posture. This approach has uncovered the cause of most pain and dysfunction that is invisible to standard medical tests.
Myofascial Release can be effective in dealing with and uncovering the causes of your chronic pain, that modern medicine and other therapies have failed to discover. The following include what conditions MFR treatments can help with:
Headache / Migraines / TMJ Pain
Women's Health Concerns
Fibromyalgia / Chronic Fatigue

Ready for Change?
When you are open to a different approach MFRYXE is here to remind your body of a pain free and active lifestyle.
MFRYXE firmly believes pain is a messenger that is not designed to be “managed”, “masked”, or “minimized” as is very common in modern practices. Give special attention, pain and tightness can be resolved at the source - gently and easily.
