considerations + contraindications

The Myofascial Release approach is an extremely gentle form of therapy that recognizes the unique state of each individual. It is meant to be practiced without the use of force and within the individual’s own resistance barriers.

Contraindications for myofascial release, such as malignancy, aneurysm, and acute rheumatoid arthrtis may be considered absolute, while others may be regional:

– cellulitis
– febrile state
– systemic or localized infection
– acute circulatory condition
– osteomyelitis
– obstructive edema
– open wounds
– sutures
– hematoma
– healing fracture
– osteoporosis or advanced degenerative changes
– anticoagulant therapy
– advanced diabetes
– hypersensitivity of skin
