What is Myofascial Release?
The John F. Barnes' Myofascial Release Approach is a therapeutic treatment that uses gentle stretching to facilitate the release of fascial restrictions caused by accidents, injury and traumatic or surgical scarring. This hands-on therapy is a powerful healing technique that effectively and cost efficiently allows patients to realize their full potential.
What is fascia?
Fascia is a tough, connective tissue, three-dimensional in nature that surrounds all organs, nerves, blood vessels, every muscle and muscle fiber down to the cellular level. When the body experiences a trauma, the fascia binds and exerts additional pressure on those organs, nerves, blood vessels and muscles.
What are the benefits of Myofascial Release?
Through Myofascial Release Therapy, clients have found relief from acute and chronic pain, chronic fatigue syndrome, movement restrictions, fibromyalgia, TMJ, plantar fasciitis, and a host of other conditions.
Does Myofascial Release treat the whole body?
Myofascial release is based on belief in the mind/body connection. The body remembers what the mind has chosen to forget. By creating a safe environment, patients are able to unwind the past traumas and release the pain. The client is fully in charge of the process and thereby an active participant in recovery. The mind-body-spirit connection is most important for successful healing.
