Eliminate Pain and Start Living!
Sam spent 15 years working in the NHS as a mental health nurse having qualified in 2001. A local, she enjoyed caring for and supporting her patients, but over time became disillusioned with how compartmentalised the NHS was when treating individual ailments – rather than treating the person as a whole. An holistic approach to correct and improve many health problems, especially when there is no conventional treatment available led Sam to leave nursing and re-train in Massage & Myofascial release.
What is Myofascial Release?
Myofascial Release (MFR) techniques are mostly soft, gentle and consistently effective in producing positive and lasting results. To aim to bring pain relief and increase mobility by freeing up myofascial restrictions. The aim of treatment is to restore the fascia by reducing the restrictions. By freeing up the fascia we can help to reduce pain and restore function, as well as improving blood and lymphatic circulation. As the layers of the injury or restriction are peeled back, the body begins its self-healing process. Myofascial Release corrects muscle imbalances, improves joint range, relieves muscle soreness, reducing joint stress, Improves neuromuscular efficiency and relaxes muscles.
What is Fascia?
Fascia is a strong 3D web of connective tissue. It is a continuous structure that runs from head to toe. The fascia is a framework that helps to support and protect all structures in the body.
A Myofascial restriction can be held in the system through postural anomalies, surgery, impact – through sport, falls, accidents. These can cause the fascia to harden and bind down. These restrictions may cause an imbalance within the body’s system and manifest as pain, decreased mobility and flexibility throughout the body. Myofascial holding patterns may have a physical and emotional component, which can be released within regular treatments.
The positive effects of bodywork are widely known and have been used to improve and enhance well being. Swedish Massage improves the circulation, soothes your muscles and relaxes the body.
With the busy lives we lead our nervous system is often in fight or flight mode. This is due to the autonomic (unconscious) nervous system being out of balance as it responds to the potential threat of stress. Massage helps us to relax, allowing the nervous system to return to a point of balance. This also affects our adrenaline and cortisol levels which also rise in response to stress – they too will return to normal.

Words fail me, I am a totally different person, I have energy, I can do things for myself again and, most importantly no pain!”
