Myofascial Release Therapy

Because You Are More Than Your Pain

What is MFR? What Can It Help?

Myofascial Release (MFR), as developed, refined and taught by John F. Barnes, is an integrative and highly effective, “whole person”, hands-on approach to healing.

MFR uses gentle sustained pressure, stretching and/or compression to releases restrictions within the fascial system- a three-dimensional web of tough connective tissue that connects and surrounds every muscle, organ, cell and system in the body.

Releasing fascial restrictions throughout the body decreases the excessive pressure that acts as a “straight jacket” in our body, allowing our bodies to let go of tensions and re-balance, so as to decrease pain and increase function; improve blood flow, nutrition and overall health down to the cellular level.  Although MFR addresses the symptoms at hand, it is designed to discover and rectify the restrictions that are often the root of the problem!
