Fascia is a 3 dimensional web that surrounds every bone, muscle, nerve, organ and vessel down to the cellular level. Restrictions in the fascia leads to pain, swelling, decreased range of motion and decreased strength. Restrictions also cause misalignment, lameness and poor muscular biomechanics. Standard tests will not show a fascial restriction. Restrictions are caused by repetitive movement and training, poor posture and trauma.MFR differs from massage and chiropractic manipulation by releasing through the soft tissue restrictions that alter bony alignment and osseous releases are performed slowly without manipulation.

Myofascial release is a form of soft tissue therapy intended to eliminate pain, increase range of motion, and rebalance the entire body. It does this by using massage techniques to stretch the fascia and release the bonds that exist between the fascia, muscles and bones. Fascia is the connective tissue that connects and covers all muscles, organs, and skeletal structures of the body. Direct myofascial release is sometimes known as deep tissue work. Indirect release applies light pressure and gently stretches the fascia; this allows for increased blood circulation and relief from pain.
