Myofascial release in Sheffield

Myofacial Release is a gentle yet effective hands-on therapy that involves the application of sustained pressure into the body’s fascial system to decrease pain, improve motion and release physical and emotional trauma. By holding the pressure for upwards of five minutes, this allows the fascia, or connective tissue, to lengthen.

Myofascial release

Fascia is the body’s connective tissue. It is found throughout the body and has been overlooked by medical science for many years; it communicates faster than the nervous system and it surrounds every artery, organ, cell, bone and muscle.

Myofascial restrictions can be caused by inflammation, trauma and surgical procedures and can produce extreme pressure often leading to pain and discomfort. Modern tests such as MRI, x-ray, CAT scans, do not show where fascial restrictions are within the body, explaining how fascial pain can be so difficult to diagnose.

MFR practitioners view each patient and each treatment session individually. There are several Myofascial Release techniques that may be used in a session, such as cross-hand releases, transverse holds, unwinding, stretches and mobilisations. MFR can also be combined with other therapies such as deep tissue or therapeutic massage.

Each Myofascial Release Treatment session is performed directly on skin without oils or tools. Only using this hands-on technique can the therapist detect fascial restrictions and respond using the appropriate amount of pressure to facilitate the fascial releases.

After a session, people usually feel much looser and more comfortable in their own bodies. A standalone treatment can be beneficial, but an on-going course of treatments can be life changing.

I thought the best way to let you know a little more about what Myofacial Release is would be by letting someone experience the therapy and then talk to you about it. Fi from the Sheffield Wellness Centre had a 90 minute session and this video is intended to give you a bit more information.

As a complete beginner and not being quite as agile as I'd like I was a bit nervous about attending a Yoga class but while I may be slightly biased given Elisha of Grow Yoga is my daughter I can honestly say I enjoyed every second of her class. She's a beautiful human with a passion and energy that radiates from her. She explains everything perfectly and encourages you to just go at your own pace and enjoy. On each occasion I've been I've left feeling like the world is a much brighter place with a calmness that is rare to feel in this very busy world. If you do have the chance to try one of her classes please take it, you'll fall in love with Grow Yogaread more
