Fascia is the three dimensional web of connective tissue that extends throughout our bodies, surrounding organs and muscle fibres. Physical or emotional trauma can make us tense up and cause our fascia to constrict, creating pain which may be longstanding and difficult to treat. Tests such as MRI or CAT scans, X-rays etc., don’t show fascial restrictions which are often the cause of chronic undiagnosed pain and the result of trauma.

Myofascial Release (MFR) is an exciting and remarkable way of working that can relieve chronic and acute pain and deep seated tension.   Done properly it is a very effective way of working with complex pain and can also be used on people with whom ordinary massage may be unhelpful or too painful.

Your teacher, Simonetta Logan, has years of experience working with pain and the effects of trauma. You will learn how to recognise and facilitate somatic release so that your clients' experiences are productive and beneficial.

The course is taught in three separate two-day master-classes in such a way that you can incorporate it immediately and effectively into your massage practice.

The course will cover:

An understanding of the fascial web and how it behaves;

An understanding of how shock or chronic tension effects the fascia;

Effective techniques that you will be able to use immediately on all your clients;

How to work on specific areas of pain;

Simple, effective ways to work with trauma and how to recognise it when it surfaces;

Evidence based techniques from other sources that will greatly enhance the effects of your treatments;

“I have found the MFR course invaluable.  Many of my clients seemed to need something more than I was able to give, their issues were complex and I felt they needed attention to something other than just their muscles.  When I found the MFR course I knew it was what I could use.  I now incorporate the techniques into my regular practice and my clients are definitely finding it helps.”

Mairi Wallace – Massage Therapist, Dundee

“MFR is not only the technique I use most in my practice - it's also the one clients recommend to their friends and family.  Many people have been referred to me for myofascial release because other treatments they've tried simply haven't been effective - especially in the long term.  I pretty much incorporate MFR into all of my treatments now."

Alison – Massage & Trauma Therapist, Edinburgh
