Myofascial Release Therapy or MRT relaxes contracted muscles as it improves blood circulation. It is often part of a comprehensive recovery plan.
MRT massages the fascia or connective tissue as it brings hydration back through blood flow. The result is a decrease in compression around the injured area.
