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.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING TREATMENT?
  • We will talk to you about your symptoms and your clinical history.
  • We will look at your posture and how you move to determine where your fascial system is tight or restricted.
  • We will confirm this by palpating areas of tightness.
  • We will use gentle hands-on techniques to release and ‘unwind’ your restrictions (your body will often move and ‘unwind’ itself under our hands).
  • We will teach you how to correct your posture and movement patterns where necessary.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER TREATMENT?
  • You are extremely likely to feel immediate relief from your symptoms and an improvement in your function.
  • You are likely to feel very relaxed. People often describe a feeling of ‘lightness’.
  • Very occasionally, a treatment can set off a ‘healing response’ where symptoms may increase for a day or 2 (this is normal but please let us know).
  • It’s important to drink plenty of water after your treatment as the fascia needs rehydrating (remember part of the fascia is fluid).
  • Keep a note of how you feel physically and emotionally as this will help us at the next session.
