Course Outline 


What is Myofascial Release?

 Myofascial release is a soft tissue therapy for the treatment of skeletal muscle immobility and pain. This technique aims to restore the natural suppleness and elasticity of the fascia and muscles, allowing the body to be restored to its natural state. By releasing the tension and knots in these bio-tissues, pain caused by misalignment of the body can be reduced. More and more physiotherapists are recognising and accepting myofascial release as a solution to correct bodily dysfunction. However, many of the equipment designed for this purpose are unsafe to use without the supervision of a professional.



Why Dual Zone Myofascial Release?

Here at Functional Training Institute where safety and efficiency are prioritized, Dual Zone Myofascial Release and DZMR Therapy balls are created. With the combination of methodologies and DZMR Therapy Balls invented by Nelson Chong, founder of Functional Training Institute, participants can now do self-releasing and activation of muscles in the comforts of their own homes safely.


Dual Zone Myofascial Release allow participants to experience a comfortable and non - stressful release in 2 different parts of the body simultaneously. Through the use of a pair of uniquely designed Therapy Balls, this method of releasing myofascia is suitable for people with injuries, limited mobility and all ages. Dual Zone Myofascial Release Workshop teaches the importance of precision trigger point release to achieve maximum results in minimal time, restoring body functions.  It is a safer, quicker and efficient way of correcting body movement dysfunction as well as reducing bodily pain. From the neck to the base of the feet, participants will gain valuable practical knowledge in relieving pain effectively for the entire body.


Many have learned and experience the positive changes in their bodies continue to apply DZMR into their lifestyle. A good number of doctors who have come to experience the effectiveness these methodologies are currently loyal advocators of DZMR.
