The John F. Barnes’ Myofascial Release Approach (JFBMFR) is a holistic, hands-on technique that uses gentle, sustained pressure to release fascial adhesions and restrictions. This helps restore function and eliminate pain.
Myo refers to muscle and fascia refers to the continuous web of connective tissue surrounding every cell, nerve, blood vessel, organ, bone, and muscle of the human body.
Restrictions and adhesions in this system can be caused by:
- stress – physical, mental, emotional
- repetitive motion
- birth trauma
- poor posture
Symptoms of these restrictions can include:
- muscle or joint pain
- decreased range of motion
- diminished organ function
- body distortions (scoliosis, foward head posture)
Myofascial Release can help relieve these symptoms and return you to life with less pain!
