WHAT WE DO

 

Myofascial release is a form of manual therapy that uses gentle pressure over time to release restrictions in the connective tissue that may have arisen because of trauma, surgery, accidents, repetitive motion, etc. It was originated by osteopath Andrew Still and further developed by scientist Ida Roth, osteopath Robert Ward and taught extensively by John Barnes, physical therapist.  All of our therapists have been trained by John Barnes.

 

The therapist assesses the body through postural analysis and palpation of the connective tissue to identify areas of restriction, and the true cause of pain and dysfunction.  Releasing these areas with gentle pressure results in a permanent change in the body as we are changing the actual cause, three dimensionally through the body and not just addressing the symptoms.
