What is the Fascial System?
The Fascial system the largest, most continuous system in our body. This 3-dimentional spider web-like system is comprised of gel like fluid. This surrounds every cell in our body, including every muscle, nerve, blood vessel, organ and bone. It permeates our entire body and our systems entirely. We are FASCIA!
When we experience trauma, our fascial system becomes dehydrated, it compresses the cells in our body with an estimated force of 2000lbs per square inch. This pressure or restrictions in one area of our body can create “symptoms” in a completely different area.
More recently, some of the world’s leading researchers, physiologists and biochemists have focused their attention on what has been forgotten or ignored, FASCIA! This video from Dr. Guimberteau shows living fascia in high detail.
What is Myofascial Release (MFR)?
The John F. Barnes Myofascial Release Approach™ is different from other traditional forms of Physiotherapy and Massage Therapy treatments.
Traditional therapy addresses the muscle and bones of our body. Most often it is too quick and involves the practitioner forcing your body in an attempt to release or create change. The results usually only lasting a few hours to a few days until the tissue returns to its original state.
John F. Barnes Myofascial Release is held with gentle sustained pressure for 5 minutes or longer at the connective tissue barrier until release occurs. Working WITH your body, it is free to discover its natural self-corrective mechanism and unlocks it’s natural healing potential.
Why should you get treatment?
- You feel like you have tried everything and exhausted all your options.
- No one has been able to help.
- No one understands what you are experiencing.
- No diagnostic test validates your pain.
- You have been told, it’s all in your head.
What if there was a gentle, easy, and effective way of treating the body?
The John F. Barnes Myofascial Release Approach™ is a hands-on treatment that can be applied anywhere on the body to address tightness, tension, pain and other symptoms. It is safe, and does not involve machines, oils/creams or drugs. It is the only form of therapy that addresses all elements of the connective tissue.
