Myofascial Release Specialists
We specialise in myofascial release because we believe it’s the most effective bodywork technique for treating chronic pain conditions.
Unlike massage, which concentrates on muscles, and chiropractic or osteopathy, which concentrate on bones, myofascial release works on both, and on fascia – the main connective tissue in the body, to maximise the benefits of treatment.
Other mind–body therapy techniques that complement myofascial release:
We also incorporate other mind-body techniques that we have found helpful to support clients to live pain free. As well as myofascial release we use a unique combination of advanced sports techniques from sports massage, trigger point therapy, visceral manipulation, scar tissue release and, where appropriate, internal myofascial treatment.
We also offer practical advice so you can help yourself between sessions. This includes myofascial stretches, exercises, relaxation downloads informed by cognitive-hypnotherapy and suggestions to prolong the benefits of your sessions.
