The John F. Barnes’ Myofascial Release Approach® is the only form of myofascial release that is a gentle, yet very powerful and effective, hands-on treatment that engages the entire three-dimensional fascial web. The fascial system is the largest system in the body, touching everything in our bodies from our skin, muscles, ligaments/tendons, bones, nerves, blood and lymph vessels and every individual cell in our bodies. As an advanced-level John Barnes therapist, I am trained to find restrictions in the body, which are causing pain and/or restricting movement, and hold these restrictions for at least 5 minutes or longer; holding the release for 5 minutes allows enough time for the fascial tubules to release and more importantly, allows enough time for the collagenous ground substance component of the fascia to rehydrate, allowing surrounding tissue, structures and cells to return to a more healthy state. It is this 5 minute hold of the tissue after the fascia releases that sets JFB MFR apart from other forms of body work, including other forms of "myofascial release."

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on treatment used to affect and improve the functioning of the craniosacral system, which is made up of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surrounds and protects the brain and spinal cord; it is implemented along with Myofascial Release.
This is a very gentle hands-on technique in which restrictions in the craniosacral system are released using very gentle pressure, which improves the functioning of the central nervous system. CST is used frequently as a preventative treatment, as it has been shown to assist the body in bolstering its resistance to disease. CST is also a very effective treatment for a wide range of symptoms and medical problems, associated with pain and dysfunction, including:
* Migraine headaches
*Chronic neck and back pain
*Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
*Fibromyalgia and other connective tissue disorders
*Stress and tension related problems
*Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
A method of healing that involves balancing and restoring the body's natural energies for the purpose of increasing vitality, balancing emotions and improving overall health and well being.
Stretching the fascial system in order to release restrictions within the interconnected fascial web, is completely different than the way we are usually taught to stretch, which is why we usually feel tight again a few hours after stretching. During our Myofascial Release Stretching Session, I will educate you on the largest system in the body, the fascial system, and how to correctly release restrictions within your fascial web...so that your body will feel more flexible, youthful, light and less prone to injury.
