MyoFascial Release (MFR) in Water

MyoFascial Release (MFR) in Water is a gentle, safe, highly effective, whole-body approach to treating the fascial system. It uses skilled, manual techniques to apply gentle, sustained pressure into the fascia to reduce and eliminate fascial restrictions. It has been extremely successful in treating all levels of pain, restoring function and mobility, and improving overall cellular health.

The workshop consists of three modules of 25 hours each: Basic – Passive Techniques – Active Techniques.

MRW Basic

In this first module, you will learn correct support for the body in water in different positions as well as optimal therapist`s body mechanics for effective treatment. You will also learn postural assessment on land and in water as well as creating a treatment strategy, how to promote a relaxation response in order to see fascial patterns in the body, and several myofascial release techniques for most significant patterns.

MRW – Passive Techniques

This module aims at learning a number of myofascial release techniques without engagement or any active participation from the client. We use the relaxation response to assess the fascial patterns hidden by gravity and utilize the whole body picture to develop a treatment strategy.

MRW – Active Techniques

In this final module you will learn active myofascial release techniques with engagement or participation from the client, using water resistance and current as well as various tools. You will also learn practical tips for everyday work with clients, marketing tools, ethics code, and self development.
