I have been doing some research on different MFR instructors, venues to learn and MFR techniques lately.
I ran across this particular technique (my client and his child, both athletes, have had excellent results from this technique - obviously from a practitioner other than myself) which mentions it is similar to "myofascial".
I found this lengthy thread on another forum (I am currently working my way through the thread - and will delete this parenthesis when I've finished all the reading ). The snippit below describes the technique in this way.
The Airrosti assessment, diagnosis, and treatment model specifically addresses the connective tissue systems in the body and provides the appropriate directed manual strokes, pressures, and movements along with neuromuscular re-education and therapeutic activity in order to treat what we find.
Everyone looks for something to compare it to, so I would tell you 'myofascial release,' except it is so much more than anything else out there and the therapy is performed in a completely different manner. As far as theory goes behind the Airrosti treatment, there is plenty of evidence in peer reviewed journals out there that support the idea that fascial tissue is the limiting factor in musculoskeletal injuries.
I have read their website, and I have to agree with one or more of the posters in the above mentioned thread, that their actual website doesn't sound much more than an advertisement. It also seems the technique is currently only being taught to DC's, and that the technique is somewhat secretive.
Any experiences with it, thoughts, opinions or comparisons of this to other techniques? It could make for interesting discussion.
