What is Myofascial Release (MFR)?
Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. It is very gentle in nature, and can help people with many kinds of pain, from chronic pain syndromes to injury recovery.
What is Fascia?
Fascia is a three dimensional web in our body that supports and surrounds every other system. This acts as a shock absorber in our bodies. Healthy fascia is a fluid system, sliding and gliding as we move. But through life experiences, trauma, injuries, stress and repetitive motions, the fascia begins to bound down and solidify into what we call restrictions. This puts enormous pressure on our blood vessels, nerves, muscles and organs which can lead to muscle spasms, pain, tightness, fatigue, loss of movement and other bizarre symptoms.
How many sessions will I need?
Everybody responds differently to the John F. Barnes Myofascial Release technique. For some people relief is immediate and continues on. For others, relief is noticeable after a few hours or a couple of days. For some, they feel worse before they feel better which is also known as a “healing crisis.” It depends on the person, how long they have been in pain, their motivation to heal, how often they self-treat, and their belief systems about personal healing. Most often our pain didn’t happen overnight and neither will our treatment. We recommend 4-6 sessions to begin to open up your fascia. Healing is a journey and with JFB Myofascial Release the results are permanent.
