The Mayr concept was created by the Austrian, Doctor Mayr when he discovered through his research that many diseases originate in the digestive system.

Therefore, he went on to develop a cleansing method that would give the intestines a rest, flush out the toxins and rejuvenate the body.

Myofascial release therapy

Myofascial Release Therapy focuses on releasing muscular shortness and tightness by using therapeutic massage and pressure point techniques on the thin layer of connective tissue or ‘fascia’ located beneath the skin. The role of fascia within the body is to attach, stabilize, cover and separate our muscles and other internal organs. Inflammation, trauma, surgical procedures and structural imbalances can create restrictions in this connective tissue leading to pain and reduced motion. Myofascial Release Therapy is an effective treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome and can also be used to address ongoing back, shoulder and hip pain as well as other affected areas that contain soft tissue.
