Myofascial Release Therapy

Myofascial release therapy allows us to look at each patient as unique individual with unique treatment needs. One -on-one therapy sessions provide hands on treatment unique to each client using a myriad of myofascial release technics and movement therapies.

John F. Barne’s Myofascial Release Therapy© (MFR) is a safe, very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the myofascial connective tissue (is a type of thin, strong, fibrous connective tissue that supports muscles and extends throughout your body) restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion and function.

This sustained pressure is an essential time element that has to do with the viscous flow of fluid and piezoelectric effect when pressure is applied to the fascial tissue. Gently applied pressure over a period of time, at least 5 minutes or longer, allows the viscoelastic medium (fascia or the connective tissue of the body) to re-hydrate itself, release and elongate. 

Trauma, inflammatory responses, and surgical procedures create restrictions in the fascia, WHICH MEAN This can produce intense pressure of up to almost 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive muscle groups. These restrictions do not show up in lab tests, MRIs or CAT scans, x-rays, and other forms of diagnostic procedures employed by standard Western medicine.
