What is FASCIA?
Fascia is a three-dimensional web of connective tissue that surrounds the entire body. The fascia surrounds our muscles, organs, in fact, fascia connects every cell in the human body. Fascial restrictions, through trauma, injuries, surgery, or any physical or emotional stress becomes solidified and shortens, putting up to 2000 pounds of pressure per square inch on your system, causing pain and dysfunction, decrease in energy, and limited range of motion.

How does John F. Barnes Myofascial Release Therapy differ from other forms of body work and therapy?
Other forms of body work and therapies generally follow a specific protocol only treating the symptoms. This "myopic" form of treatment only addresses a specific body part and ignores the power of consciousness. JFB-MFR is a WHOLE BODY technique, that engages the entire system in the process of healing... the mind, body and spirit.
