Could I have fascial restrictions?
When looking in the mirror, is your posture crooked?
Do you have pain?
Is it hard to stand or sit up straight for extended periods of time?
Do your muscles feel tight?
Do you feel overly tired?
If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, you likely have fascial restrictions. A skilled MFR practitioner can verify the presence of fascial restrictions through touch and observation of your body.
Could myofascial release work for me?
Do you have a desire to be well?
Are you willing to take an active role in your healing journey?
Are you open to another approach?
If you answered “yes” to the above, myofascial release may work for you!
Everyone responds uniquely to MFR and within their own time-frame. Most feel differences in symptoms right away while others require a number of sessions to achieve their goals of well-being. If your fascial system is restricted and you are open to the process of releasing it and desire wellness for yourself, you can join the thousands who have eliminated symptoms and have been profoundly helped by MFR.
What should I wear for my treatment?
Myofascial Release is done directly on the skin.
Loose fitting clothing such as gym shorts or bathing suit bottoms (men and women), and swimsuit top or sports bra for women or regular undergarments are acceptable; as long as we can gain access to the skin.
Please do NOT apply lotion or oil of any kind as this will interfere with gaining the necessary traction used for effective myofascial release.
What does MFR feel like?
The John F. Barnes Approach® of MFR is gentle and never forceful.
Therefore, the pressure applied is always in tune with what your body needs and within your tolerance.
As pressure is applied into areas of tightness, sometimes a warmth or sense of stretch or tension is felt. As the tissue releases, tightness softens, pain eases, and body alignment changes.
After a treatment session, some people experience short-term soreness as the body accommodates this real change. Likely you will experience a reduction in symptoms, increased energy levels, and improved sleep patterns following a treatment session.
