Self Myofascial Release Therapy (SMRT) - is an interactive soft-tissue-release technique performed on oneself using a foam roller. The aim of it is to firstly inhibit localised tender regions of the body by applying deep yet tolerable prolonged pressure on the muscles. It’s just like receiving a deep massage. This aids in the breakdown of superficial myofascial adhesions, which are a build up of unwanted muscle tissue which can cause pain if they are left to build up for too long. It also increases the fluidity of movement within the soft tissue.

 

By performing Self-Myofascial Release Therapy techniques on a simple piece of foam, you can improve flexibility, function, performance, and reduce injuries. You can use your own body weight to roll on the round foam roll, massaging away restrictions to normal soft-tissue extensibility.  And best of all you can perform this program anywhere once the techniques are learnt, maximizing your recovery time from training. It removes muscle tension and allows for a correction of muscle in-balance prior to starting an exercise program.

 

Poor posture, injuries and repetitive movements through work or sport can cause the body to favour one side over the other which causes an in balance of tension and strength. SMRT works to create a better balance within the body which helps to iron out these in-balances.

 

If one segment of the body is not functioning efficiently, then the other components must compensate, leading to tissue overload, fatigue, faulty movement patterns, and finally initiates the Cumulative Injury Cycle.  For example, muscle tightness restricts the range of motion that a joint may be moved.  Because of muscle restriction (tightness, soft tissue adhesions, and neural-hyperactivity), joint motion is altered, thus changing normal neural feedback to the CNS (central nervous system).  Ultimately, neuromuscular efficiency is compromised, which leads to poor movement patterns, inducing premature fatigue and causing injury.  The SMFR (Self-Myofascial Release) Program helps you improve muscular balance and performance.

Reduction in soft-tissue tension decreases pain, restores normal muscle length-tension relationships, and improves function.

 

The SMFR Program can help you reach your health and fitness goals simply by using your own body weight on the rolls, it will be reducing pain and tension, and restoring normal muscle length and balance.  Optimum muscle balance helps to provide optimum joint motion leading to optimum performance and exercise. Make the most out of your precious time and do things right!

 

An added benefit to SMRT is the full body strength workout obtained whilst holding up your body during SMRT, therefore burning lots of calories during, as well as after!

It allows you to be in better control of your body’s tension by releasing it soon after it builds up, rather than allowing the tension reaching its peak and manifesting itself through pain.
