Myofascial Release (MFR)
Myofascial Release is a highly effective hands-on massage therapy technique that eliminates pain and restores motion by putting sustained pressure into myofascial connective tissue restrictions
The fascia is a specialized system of the body that has an appearance similar to a spider's web or a sweater that exists uninterrupted from head to toe.
It covers every muscle, bone, nerve, and organ down to the cellular level. In the normal healthy state, the fascia is relaxed and wavy in configuration and has the ability to stretch and move without restriction
When we experience physical trauma, scarring, or inflammation, the fascia loses its pliability becoming tight and restricted causing tension throughout the body.
Trauma (such as a fall, whiplash, surgery, repetitive stress injuries, or habitual poor posture) over time has cumulative effects which may cause fascial restrictions. These changes in the fascial system influence the overall comfort and function of the body. Restricted fascia can exert excessive pressure on the body producing pain and/or limited motion. MFR opens up these restrictions and provides long-term pain relief
The John F. Barnes Myofascial Release Approach
John F. Barnes Myofascial Release (MFR) involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the myofascial connective tissue restrictions to reduce pain and restore motion.
MFR addresses the muscle fascia, a complex, continuous three-dimensional net in and around the muscle which holds the shape of every part in the body, including the organs. Fascia contains fluid, liquid crystal – it conducts current. Fascial restrictions often occur from previous or acute physical injuries as well as psychological and emotional trauma, resulting in chronic pain, decreased range of motion, and other seemingly unrelated physical and emotional imbalances. These restrictions can affect the movement patterns in the body, which can cause a chain reaction of compensations, resulting in pain that presents itself in a different area of the body!
John Barnes' Myofascial Release Approach is a gentle yet penetrating technique that reaches deep inside the body to facilitate release, increasing fluidity of the tissue and encouraging energy flow.
All systems of the body respond to this approach, bringing positive change to all aspects of our being and allowing us the highest quality of life. John Barnes' Myofascial Release Approach addresses the source of the pain, for a natural, whole body approach to authentic healing
Benefits of John F. Barnes MyoFascial Release
To understand why myofascial release helps so many conditions, consider what happens to nerves, blood vessels, joints, organs, and cells themselves when their fascial web of support is distorted. Critical, life sustaining functions are interrupted in a variety of ways and your body compensates by displaying symptoms. By correcting the distortions, myofascial release relieves the symptoms! MFR is a safe, gentle and effective therapy that produces results that last. It can be beneficial for many conditions such as:
Headaches or migraines
Scar tissue, adhesions
Women's health issues
Chronic pain & disfunction
Post surgical dysfunction
