What is John F. Barnes Myofascial Release?

Myofascial Release (MFR) is a powerful tool utilized by a select number of skilled therapists with issues such as chronic pain, postural imbalance, back pain, neck pain, TMJ dysfunction, plantar fasciitis, fibromyalgia, and many more.

Myofascial Release is a hands-on technique that facilitates a stretch into soft tissue. The tissue will undergo histological length changes, allowing series of releases.

By elongating the fascial system the therapist may restore the efficiency of the neuromuscular elements of the tissue thereby restoring the natural abilities of coordination, strength, power and urestricted motion to our bodies.

What is Craniosacral Therapy?

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the function of the craniosacral system. It involves light pressure involving the cranial and sacral areas, the trunk, neck and extremities. The practitioner releases restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.  This therapy is very beneficial for people suffering from migraines, chronic neck and back pain, motor-coordination impairments, colic, autism, scoliosis, chronic fatigue issues and fibromyalgia. There are considerable benefits to practitioners and clients who combine John F. Barnes’s Myofascial Release (MFR) approach with Craniosacral Therapy. CST combined with MFR therapy can enhance the body’s natural healing process.
