Myofascial Release Technique (MFT)



While I work on my words to explain this profoundly effective technique of massage and body work, I will direct you to other pages to give you an idea of how it works and what to expect.  My apologies, my eagerness to share this wonderful therapy with you means the links below are better than telling you nothing until I have composed my own information!


Myofascial Release Technique (MFT), does not use oils.  It is a very gentle and slow therapy - it is astoundingly effective fro those who do not like deep pressure, and surprisingly perhaps, for those who can not get hard enough pressure - it sounds like an oxymoron, but unless you wish to train in MFT, you will have to take my word for it until you have tried it for yourself.  That is not to say that discomfort is never felt - indeed, where it is needed most it can be painful, but I will always work with you and within your boundaries and comfort zones.  If it is too uncomfortable, I can lower the intensity of the session, and we can schedule more sessions to ensure the same end point of freedom of pain, tension, and restriction are met - it may just take longer to achieve, which is logical.


I am likely to incorporate this technique in your massage session, regardless of the reason you come to see me or the type of massage you like best as it is so profoundly effective.  I have already been using elements of MFT instinctively in many sessions for years - just now I am more effective and make full use of the true potential of the benefits by using the technique correctly.
