About MFR & Massage
Could I have fascial restrictions?
When looking in the mirror, is your posture crooked?
Do you have pain?
Is it hard to stand or sit up straight for extended periods of time?
Do your muscles feel tight?
Do you feel overly tired?
If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, you likely have fascial restrictions. A skilled MFR practitioner can verify the presence of fascial restrictions through touch and observation of your body.
Could myofascial release work for me?
Are you willing to take an active role in your healing journey?
Are you open to another approach?
What should I wear for my treatment?
Please do NOT apply lotion or oil of any kind as this will interfere with gaining the necessary traction used for effective myofascial release.
What does MFR feel like?
After a treatment session, some people may experience short-term soreness or therapeutic pain as the body accommodates this real change as well as emotional tenderness. Likely you will experience a reduction in symptoms, increased energy levels, and improved sleep patterns following a treatment session.
What are fascial restrictions?
Let's start with a look at the universe...seriously. Within a blackness of space and infinite possibility, there exist stars, moons, planets, comets, nebulae, galaxies, and all other matter-- everything supported, suspended, and generated by the invisible energy mesh within and around it all.
This mesh and its contents, are exactly like that of our fascial network, although very visible.
What is herbalism and who is it for?
Herbalism is for everybody! It is the study, science, and practice of learning from and about plants as medicinal allies and healthful support throughout life. Many allopathic medicines are derived from medicinal constituents of plants, therefore, the plants themselves contain the medicine. We are surrounded by these amazing creatures all over the planet, and they have the ability to help us in both chronic and acute need, for daily fortification and wellness support as well as first aid and relief from illness and pain. Book a consultation to learn more!
What happens in an herbal consultation?
A consultation with me begins with setting a time aside for us to connect, a time that is just for you! Once an appointment is made, I will send you an intake form which you will complete ahead of time. This will allow for you to feel into where support is needed as well as goals you wish to achieve with treatment. You will also be encouraged to observe and record daily habits and routines that may be discussed during our time together.
What kinds of herbal products do you make?
I make a variety of products for both internal consumption and external application.
Herbal Oil: An oil infused with herbs over low heat (or fire)
Sitz bath: A blend of herbs used for external application by steam, steeping, or washing affected areas
