MFR - Myofascial Release

I completed my MYOFASCIAL RELEASE (MFR) training in October 2018 & Skills Enhancement Seminar on November 23, 2018 under the direction of John F. Barnes' Therapy on the Rocks in Sedona Arizona. John is an internationally recognized physical therapist, lecturer, author, and the leading authority on Myofascial Release. I completed the Cervical & Thoracic, Rebounding, and Fascial-Pelvis release sessions in 2019. I completed Unwinding and MFR2 in 2021.

What is MYOFASCIAL RELEASE (MFR)?

Myofascial RELEASE relieves soft tissue restrictions that cause pain, stress, tension.

It is a type of safe, low-load stretch that releases tightness and pain throughout the body caused by Myofascial pain syndrome, which describes chronic muscle pain that is worse in certain areas known as trigger points. Myofascial Release treats the entire Myofascial mind/body complex eliminating the pressure of the restricted Myofascial system that causes the symptoms.

Myofascial Release is a hands-on application meant to stretch, loosen & soften the fascia tissue. Each stroke applies gentle pressure for a minimum of 5 minutes. It assists in relieving skeletal muscle immobility and pain, improving blood & lymphatic circulation.
