WHAT IS MYOFASCIAL RELEASE TREATMENT?
John F Barnes (JFB) Myofascial Release (MFR) is a gentle hands-on, whole body treatment which addresses the cause of your problem, not just your symptoms. This leads to faster and more permanent changes.
The fascia is a tough connective tissue with a fluid ‘ground substance’. It spreads throughout the body in a 3-dimensional web, much like a knitted bodysuit. The fascia surrounds every structure and system in the body, as well as being part of every cell and fibre.
When the fascia becomes restricted from injury, trauma, surgery or stress, it solidifies and tightens, creating a crushing pressure on muscles, nerves and the circulatory system causing pain and dysfunction.
