Fascia is a thin layer of connective tissue that surrounds every organ, blood vessel, bone, nerve fiber, and muscle in the human body. The fascia has nerves that make it almost as sensitive as skin. Healthy fascia is smooth, slippery, and flexible, however, fascial can become tight, stuck together with a gummy consistency (known as adhesions). These adhesions could be a contributing factor in stiffness and pain.
Sedentary lifestyle (too little movement day after day)
A repetitive movement that overworks one part of the body
Trauma such as surgery or injury
Wear loose-fitting shorts and a t-shirt or tank top. Do not apply lotions or oils to your skin prior to your session.
You may experience what is known as the healing crisis between 24-72 hours after your session. As the facial adhesions let go they release toxins. You might notice slight inflammation which is actually healing the area as it flushes the released toxins. We recommend letting this natural process happen and not using ice or taking anti-inflammatory drugs.
MFR is not painful, but at times you might feel stretching, tingling, or heating sensation either directly where your therapist is working or in another area of your body. You are in control during the entire session and can ask your therapist to loosen up at any time.
