About In Motion MFR

Everything we do at In Motion MFR is centered around you, the patient – because you hold the keys to so many aspects shaping your health. And without your active participation in your journey to health, none of our wisdom will create longterm health.

Core Values Of Care

An Integrative Approach

The practice focus is rooted in client care where the client participates. The main mission is to empower you with the knowledge and collective wisdom to create health for yourself utilizing   the highly specialized combination of treatment with myofascial release and neurokinetic therapy  methods, depending on the individual’s holistic need.

After treatment, you will learn about an integrative approach to your wellness, to keep chronic pain at bay.  You’ll learn smart lifestyle modifications, diet changes, and mindset tools that will significantly improve your health and symptoms.


Dedicated Attention

You’ll receive dedicated attention from Jonathan, who will draw from his expertise in a number of pain-relieving therapy modalities.

During your exploratory phone consultation, we’ll review your history, see if the therapy is a good fit, and if so, chart together the course for your care package, specifically tailored to your needs.

The subsequent treatment will be handled personally by Jonathan, who will collaborate with your current care team.

Personalized Care

No patient is exactly the same, and yet there are multiple factors that create acute or chronic pain. Guided by Jonathan, he will get to the root cause of pain – using therapies that standard Western medicine doesn’t employ.

You will also learn how to manage pain holistically, uncovering potential inflammatory factors from your diet, ergonomics in your home and at work, as well as how to upgrade your mindset to arrive at a “lifestyle prescription” that you can use for life.

Innovative Treatments

Did you know that the average patient lives with some form of chronic muscle or back pain their entire life? At In Motion MFR, I’m deeply committed to showing my patients that they can live pain-free and free of constant aches and pains that don’t have to be a regular part of their day.

If you are struggling with acute or chronic pain, restrictions, stress, scars, pelvic issues, or dysfunctional mobility, In Motion MFR can help. You can also receive treatment pre and post surgery to make your recovery process faster.


Root Cause Resolution

Unlike traditional therapies, Jonathan focuses  on isolating the key imbalance responsible for the symptoms you’re experiencing.

The goal is to give you solutions, naturally rebalance the body’s fascial system, thereby boosting your body’s innate ability to heal itself

Co-Creating Health

Let’s co-create a pain-free lifestyle together, first by giving you the appropriate treatment based on where you need it most. The special treatments that are part of your care package achieve several things; including rebalancing the connection between your brain and muscles, and releasing the fascial restriction. For example, we’ll determine which muscles have a good connection to your brain, vs muscles that are under working, causing strain. Think of your muscles like a computer, you’ll want to make sure all of them are on-line and communicating smoothly.

The Philosophy That Drives Us

The philosophy that motivates everyone on our care teams at In Motion MFR is pretty simple:

“Do whatever it takes to effectively, comfortably, and safely treat your patient. Whatever that ‘whatever’ is.”

Jonathan Berens founded In Motion MFR on the belief of participatory care where the patient is an instrumental partner in returning their body back to health (or keeping it healthy). And that it’s not about pre-determined ideas about a diagnosis without a full understanding of a patient’s situation.

That’s why the care team at In Motion MFR will leave no stone unturned when it comes to getting to the root cause of your problems. It is recognized many problems start with the fascia, and without taking this into account, problems can’t be addressed at the root cause.

We will integrate  recent research along with literally years of knowledge that our team has accumulated. As it is stated in our Core Values of Care, you will always be first in line for innovative, integrative treatment methods that combine the best in treatment.

He accomplishes this by attending to the spiritual, psychological, cognitive, physical, and emotional components that take place during the healing process.

Jonathan is a strong advocate for educating clients about their health and well-being. He believes this empowers, and encourages the client to be responsible for their treatment and healing. Jonathan specializes in Myofascial Release Therapy (MFR) including people, horses, and companion animals, and Neurokinetic Therapy (NKT). He works with individuals of all ages.

“Lasting Results…”

I would like to send a big shout out to Jonathan Berens for helping me with my physical pain last week! You are a lifesaver and truly have a gift for helping others! For any of my friends out there who are experiencing pain or discomfort, give myofascial release a try! Instead of some of the quick fixes that are available, MFR has lasting results! Thanks Jonathan!

-Marni Ferster

“In Motion MFR is Life-Changing…”

See Jonathan Berens and give MFR a chance to change your life. I endured chronic pain that prevented me from participating in sports. After one visit with Jonathan I had immediate relief and started training again at 60 yrs old. Subsequent visits for neck and right hand “carpal tunnel” were also successful. Jonathan is thorough, medically knowledgeable and intuitive. Physical therapy, massage therapy and medication did not get me active again, myofascial release in the hands of an exceptional practitioner did!

-Susan Vogel

I’ve worked with many practitioners, Jonathan is the best!

I was so excited to find a myofascial release practitioner in Billings. Jonathan Berens is very knowledgeable of the body and how it works. He is also very intuitive in helping the body release whatever may be stuck in the fascia, physically, emotionally and mentally. I have worked with many practitioners, including physical therapists, chiropractors, massage therapists and energy healers, none of which helped me as much as Jonathan. I am very grateful to have found such an exceptional facilitator that has helped me to heal body issues I have had for a very long time.
