Myofascial Release (John F. Barnes Approach)

Steve practices the John F. Barnes’ Myofascial Release Approach® which is considered to be the ultimate therapy that is safe, gentle and consistently effective in producing results that last. John Barnes, has trained over 100,000 therapists and physicians, is an international lecturer,  physical therapist and is considered to be a visionary and bodywork teacher of the highest caliber.

Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create Myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures that do not show up in many of the standard tests (x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.)

The medical approach is to drug patients so they temporarily are free from pain, but does nothing about the “straitjacket” of pressure that is causing the pain. Traditional therapies treat the symptoms caused by this pressure that is exerted upon the Myofascial system, but does not truly address the causes that are perpetuating the symptoms. This is why so many patients only have temporary results never seeming to get fully better with traditional therapy.  Myofascial Release treats the entire mind/body complex eliminating the pressure of the restricted Myofascial system (the straitjacket) that causes the symptoms.

Patients get relief from this version of Myofascial Release when medicine, surgery or traditional therapy did not produce the desired results. Myofascial Release will safely and gently release the entire Myofascial complex for lasting and comprehensive results and authentic healing.
