Myofascial release is a hands-on soft tissue technique that facilitates a stretch into the restricted fascia. Is designed to actively stretch and elongate the fascia and underlying soft tissue to release areas of decreased fascial motion. Documented clinical outcomes associated with MFR include improved physiologic function, reduction of pain, and increased range of motion in the affected joint.
What is IASTM?
Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) is a skilled myofascial intervention used for soft-tissue treatment. It is applied using instruments that are usually made of stainless steel with bevelLed edges and contours that can conform to different body anatomical locations and allows for deeper penetration.

What does a myofascial release feel like?
The first sensation you'll get is a springing give that feels like a release. This is the tissue's elastic component giving way, which means you stop there, you won't see a long-term difference right away because it takes time to get deeper into the more plastic part of the tissue.
What Are the Risks of Myofascial Release?
Myofascial release by massage therapy has very few risks. Whether you’re trying to relax or aiming to ease back pain, massage therapy may be beneficial for pain reduction.
However, massage isn’t ideal for people:
with burns, injuries, or painful wounds
with fractures or broken bones
with fragile or weak bones
with deep vein thrombosis or deep vein issues
taking blood-thinning medications
