Unlike other traditional therapies or conventional medicine, Myofascial Release does not just focus on the symptoms. It certainly addresses the symptoms at hand but also identifies and rectifies the root cause of the problem. This is the reason behind profound and lasting results.
What is Myofascial Release?
Myofascial Release (MFR), as taught by John F. Barnes, is a highly effective, full body, hands-on approach. This manual therapy can provide amazing results for decreasing pain and increasing range of motion. It has the potential to reach in to the Whole Body… physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. It views each individual as a whole person and creates an environment to allow one’s self to inherently heal.
To simply describe a complex system, fascia is a web-like system in our body that runs head to toe without interruption. It is a tough connective tissue that supports our entire being from the largest structures in our body down to the cellular level. Until recently, the fascial system has been largely ignored by most professionals in the health care industry.
Physical or emotional trauma, inflammation or postural misalignment can cause fascial restrictions leading to pressure on pain sensitive structures. This excessive pressure acts as a “straight jacket” in our body, producing symptoms such as pain, headaches, limited range of motion or even a general stuck-ness as it relates to Life, inhibiting movement. The modality of MFR uses sustained pressure and gentle stretching or compression into the fascial system allowing it to regain fluidity and relieve the tension of this tough connective tissue.
Although MFR addresses the symptoms at hand, it is designed to discover and rectify the restrictions that are often the root of the problem!
