What is Myofascia Release (MFR) therapy?

A safe and very effective self-massage practice using rubber therapy balls*. It involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the connective tissues (or fascia) to eliminate pain, calm the nervous system and restore movement. It can be used on literally every area of the body including head, neck, face, shoulders, arms, hands, back, hips, legs and feet.

*can be substituted for tennis balls or rubber dog balls.

 

What is fascia?

It’s a sheet of connective tissue below our skin that stabilises, encloses and separates all our muscles, nerves, bones and internal organs. It’s our soft skeleton. Fascia is involved in all functions, movements and stability.  It’s what gives you shape and supports your posture. It is one of the most under-rated systems in the body. But when it tightens- it leads to sore muscles, trigger points, pain, knots and injuries.

 

Why use therapy balls?

They are a fantastic self-massage tool. They allow you to sink into the deeper layers of your connective tissues to reach the knots and adhesions of the muscles. Because they can be easily manoeuvred you can reach areas of the body that otherwise would be difficult to reach yourself such as your back, neck and shoulders.

The pressure is easy to control so you can choose how firm or gentle a massage you want.

The density of the ball matters, using the right amount of density without being too hard. Ideally the ball you are using should be comfortably conform to the area you are rolling. You should not experience pain, as it’s actually putting more tension in your system. You should be able to relax into it or have the balls relax into you.

 

It doesn’t have to hurt to work.

Our tissues are soft and already under a tremendous amount of tension, so a gentler approach is always best as it entices the body into relaxation and eases the tension from tight & painful muscles. Going all out, to force the body to relax will leave you feeling achy and very stressed. The exact opposite of how you want to feel.
