Myofascial Release Therapy

Gentle | Healing | Slow

This is a specific form of massage that works with fascia, an uninterrupted network of connective tissue running throughout your whole body. Fascia surrounds, protects, binds and separates muscles, bones and organs.

As a result of postural habits, injury or emotional trauma, fascia can become restricted, meaning that muscles and bones can’t move freely and effectively. This can create dysfunction across the whole system.

This gentle treatment can release these restrictions and restore movement and ease in the body. Each session is tailored to your specific needs at that time.



Check your private health plan or insurance. You may be able to claim back some of the cost of your treatment.
