Myofascial Release

John F. Barnes Myofascial Release is a very effective hands-on technique that provides sustained pressure into myofascial restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. The theory of Myofascial Release requires an understanding of the fascial system (or connective tissue). The fascia is a specialized system of the body that has an appearance similar to a spider's web or a sweater.

MFR is a manual therapy technique which is extremely effective in eliminating pain and restoring postural alignment and function. It is highly sought after due to its reputation for producing outstanding and lasting results, even when other therapy methods haven’t worked. To learn more about how MFR is different, click here
