Blue Nyle Therapy Services Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is Fascia?

Fascia is a densely woven connective tissue that surrounds and interconnects every muscle, bone, organ, nerve, artery and cell of our body. It is the fascial system that connects us from head-to-toe and when it is restricted or damaged in one are of the body (e.g., head), it can often cause symptoms to manifest in another part of the body (e.g., digestive system).

How many sessions will I need before I start to feel better?

Every body is unique and our response to healing will vary depending on environmental, genetic, age-related, and nutritional factors. Most people start to notice a physical shift after the first session and a more significant difference after five–six sessions in adults and two–3 sessions in children.

What should I wear during my Myofascial Release (MFR) session?

This hands-on treatment is the most effective when conducted directly on skin. A pair of shorts for men and a sports bra/tanktop and loose shorts for women would be appropriate. Please do not apply lotion to the skin prior to your treatment.

Why does my baby/ toddler cry during the session?

Children under four are more likely to cry during therapy. We assume that this is due to frustration or confusion, as the techniques are far too mild and gentle to cause pain.

How many sessions will my child need?

Every child’s strain level is unique, as is every treatment plan. Usually treatment begins with several weekly sessions, and periodic maintenance visits should continue at varying frequency.

How can I best prepare my child for the session?

Plan meals and snacks (other than breastfeeding) before or after the session time, as eating solid foods during therapy presents a choking hazard. Bring all children in comfortable, modest non restrictive clothing. Babies and smaller children benefit from the company of a favorite toy or item from home to help make new surroundings more comfortable.

What should I do during my child’s session?

A parent or guardian must be present in person for the entire session. Hands on parental involvement is encouraged in the form of nursing, holding, singing, playing, etc.
