Deep Tissue / MyoFascial Release (MFR) in Seattle, WA

MyoFascial Release is a form of soft tissue therapy intended to eliminate pain, increase range of motion, and rebalance the entire body. It does this by using massage techniques to stretch the fascia and release the bonds that exist between the fascia, muscles and bones. Fascia is the connective tissue that connects and covers all muscles, organs, and skeletal structures of the body. Direct myofascial release is sometimes known as deep tissue work. Indirect myofascial release applies light pressure and gently stretches the fascia; this allows for increased blood circulation and relief from pain.

Deep Tissue sculpting is done without oil, using slow, deep strokes. It penetrates deep into the muscle tissue and fascia, stretching them to eliminate adhesions (places where tissues are glued together) and scar tissue. This is very effective at reducing pain and restoring range of motion. Deep Tissue often has a reputation for being painful, but if done sensitively, it can actually feel good! Even when it is a little painful, clients usually comment that it was well worth it for the lasting pain relief they got afterwards.
