Each therapist expresses their art differently, however all are trained on the scientific research and practice of John F. Barnes, founder of the Myofascial Release practice. All MFR trained therapists are dedicated to the comprehensive delivery of the highest quality care utilizing a multifaceted, multidisciplinary approach for lasting results. Our therapists evaluate and treat each patient as a unique individual. They will treat the cause of the problem to eliminate the symptoms, in order to make permanent structural changes to help you return to a pain, free, active lifestyle.
Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create Myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures that do not show up in many of the standard tests (x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.)
The medical approach is to drug patients so they temporarily are free from pain, but does nothing about the “straight-jacket” of pressure that is causing the pain. Traditional physical, occupational and massage therapy treats the symptoms caused by the pressure of the “straightjacket” of the Myofascial system, but does nothing about the “straightjacket” of pressure that causes and perpetuates the symptoms. This is why so many patients only have temporary results never seeming to get better with traditional therapy. Only Myofascial Release treats the entire Myofascial mind/body complex eliminating the pressure of the restricted Myofascial system (the straightjacket) that causes the symptoms. Myofascial Release will safely and gently release the entire Myofascial complex for lasting and comprehensive results and authentic healing.
