Because You Are More Than Your Pain
Treatment is individual to each person as we each come with our own unique physical, emotional history and belief systems. JFB-MFR therapists treat the body as a whole (not just the area of pain) and are trained to look for fascial restrictions thus treating the cause and not merely the symptoms.
Each person will heal and progress as individuals. Some patients have relief after their first treatment and others do not. This is highly individual as diagnosis, chronicity of symptoms, motivation to heal, personal belief system of health and healing, and cultural beliefs can all effect outcomes. Rome was not built in one day and it was not destroyed overnight. Similarly chronic health problems will not turn around overnight. That said, chronic fascial restrictions are more responsive when treatments are spaced closer together- typically, one to three visits per week.one to three visits per week to three visits per week. By keeping the treatments closely spaced together the therapist is able to get into the restricted areas deeper with each successive treatment.
You will also be taught various self treatment techniques that will help empower you to be an integral part of your recovery. Learning how to safely and effectively treat yourself is a powerful way to enhance your progress, particularly if treatments need to be scheduled further apart. Done regularly, self treatment will also help you to create and maintain lasting changes in your body and avoid injury.
Generally, gentle and relaxing, but from time to time a session may be therapeutically challenging. Additionally, Unwinding may be accompanied by emotion- we are FEELING, PHYSICAL beings. Myofascial Release encourages one to feel ALL sensations that may arise. This is what our bodies need to do to heal. I will help you with these therapeutically uncomfortable moments. It is most important to know that although MFR may bring up physical or emotional pain, it does not force and will not injure you.
After a session it is important to listen to your body, to drink plenty of water and give yourself permission to be easy with yourself.
