Fascial tissue is a connective tissue beneath the skin that stabilizes your muscles and internal organs by wrapping around and holding them in place. In addition to your major organs, fascial tissue supports blood vessels, bone, and nerve fibers. Made up primarily of collagen, fascial tissue contains nerves that make it sensitive, just like your skin.
Because fascial tissue is a network of interconnected tissue (imagine a fishing net), when it is tight in one area of the body, it can cause discomfort, pain, and/or symptoms in any other part of the body, even if they are not close together. By gently stretching this tissue, the MFR technique allows all of your major systems to operate more efficiently. This includes, but is not limited to the nervous, cardiovascular, muscular and skeletal systems making it an effective treatment for a wide range of issues you may be experiencing.
