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.
The short list of conditions treated:
Pelvic Floor Dysfunction
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Jaw Pain (TMJ)

Women’s Health Issues
And many more to maintain superhealth!
The therapist will perform a postural analysis to assess the connective tissue and palpate the body by pressing and stretching gently. This identifies areas of restriction. Therapist will apply gentle targeted pressure to release restrictions.
