Myofascial Release Therapy

Untitled-6What is it?

  • Holistic non-invasive approach to restoration and maintenance of your pet’s good health.
  • Drug-free treatment.
  • Provides pain relief for your pet from muscular skeletal problems.
  • Practitioners use their hands to gently stretch the muscles and fascia to release restrictions, allowing the body to function optimally and heal itself naturally.
  • Alternative, integrative, complementary, natural & holistic medicine.
  • Potent modality therapy used to reduce dysfunctions.

How does it Work?

  • For your pet’s body to function optimally, muscles and fascia should be relaxed and able to stretch and respond to the body’s needs.
  • If muscles and fascia are too tense and tight, movement and range of motion will be restricted.
  • Therapists will apply pressure and work on small specific areas of muscle & fascia at a time.
  • Start stretching at the thigh area and move on when it relaxes, gradually equalising myofascial tension throughout your pet.
  • Treatment is gentle and done by hand, and guided by pets’ responses.
  • Facilitates the body’s natural ability to heal by releasing restrictions in the muscles & connective tissues, allowing the body to become rebalanced and realigned.
