Myofacial Release Therapy (MFR) is a non-invasive, whole body, hands-on method for evaluating and treating conditions as well as improving your overall health, well being and function. MFR’s basic principle is to eliminate restrictions within the body’s fascial system. Fascia is a tough connective tissue that spreads throughout the body in a three-dimensional web from head to foot. The fascial system surrounds and interconnects with every muscle, bone, blood vessel and organ – all the way to the cellular level. Trauma, poor posture or inflammation can create a binding down of fascia – causing excess pressure on nerves, muscles, blood vessels, bones and organs. Because fascial restrictions do not show up on standard medical tests like X-ray, MRI or CAT scans, it is likely that many people suffering from pain and lack of motion might have underlying, undiagnosed fascial problems.

With MFR, Cindy applies gentle, sustained pressure into fascial restrictions to release the tissue and improve the natural healing responses within your body. The results? Less pain, more flexibility, increased function and increased well being and health. MFR is safe and known for producing positive and lasting results.

Hear from those helped.

Seven years ago I had my right knee replaced. Nothing we did got me past 75 degrees and they finally gave up. Then I met Cindy and she said she could help. I went to her 3 times a week for 2 months and she took me from 75 degrees to 95 degrees. Now I can do steps one after the other and many things are easier.

Isn’t that great?!

Cindy is a true expert in taking a holistic approach to pain and
discomfort. Being truly “Hands on”, Cindy spends time to analyze, learn, and inquire about all of the factors that may or may not contribute to whatever pain you’re experiencing. In my case, her expertise in myofascial release has led to not only less irritation in my target area, but knowledge and guidance of how to apply her wisdom in my everyday life for my whole body.

I strongly recommend going to Cindy, as other modalities haven’t worked quite as well for me. If you’re committed to making a change for the better, go see Cindy at Hands on Healthcare.

I started as a patient at Hands on HealthCare in my mid 20s. By that point I was living in constant debilitating pain that doctors were calling migraines, fibromyalgia and possible trigeminal neuralgia. For approximately 5 years I had been to countless specialists and put on dozens of medications with nearly no pain relief. Walking to the mailbox or up a flight of stairs increased my pain to a level that was nearly unbearable. Myofascial Release has slowly but steadily given me my life back. I am now in my late 30s and am able to keep up with my two active elementary school aged children. Because of the improvements in my health due to MFR I am able to take them hiking, swimming and even roller skating- all things I never thought I would be able to enjoy again! While I am still not pain-free I have found a road to recovery and lasting wellness that has quite literally given me my life back.

In my quest to educate myself about this syndrome (fibromyalgia) and any possible treatments I have tried many things. What I have found that benefits me most is Myofascial Release.
