Myofascial Release Therapy in Tampa

Myofascial Release Therapy (MRT) at Tampa Bay Sports & Medical Massage in South Tampa, FL is a safe and effective form of bodywork that uses a type of soft tissue massage, which incorporates stretching and massage of the connective tissues, or fascia.  

MRT involves releasing and unwinding the fascia (connective tissue). This tissue layer, which connects every muscle, tendon, ligament, bone, and organ in our bodies, can hold onto memories from stress or physical trauma. MRT with our licensed massage therapists seeks to rebalance the body by releasing tension in the fascia.


Why MRT?

Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create Myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures that do not show up in many of the standard tests (x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.)

The use of Myofascial Release allows us to look at each client as a unique individual. Our one-on-one therapy sessions at Tampa Sports & Medical Massage are hands-on treatments during which our licensed massage therapists use a multitude of Myofascial Release techniques and movement therapy.

Myofascial Release Therapy helps relieve pain and tension that may be caused from injury or stress. Releasing these restrictions, frees up the muscle and allows it to move more easily and effectively. Sessions can include craniosacral work, stretching techniques, and deep tissue work.
