What is MyoFascial Release?
Myofascial Release (MFR) is a set of techniques, and a
philosophy of body dynamics as taught by John F. Barnes, PT. It
primarily focuses on the fascia - the fibrous covering of muscles,
organs, tendons, veins, arteries, etc. The techniques restore the
fascial tissue to it's preferred liquid state instead of the semi-solid
gel state it gets into when injury occurs. When in a gel state, fascia
binds the underlying tissue. Myofascial Release aids in converting
the gel state of fascia back into the normal liquid state through
sustained and progressive pressure on the restricted structures.
Releasing these restrictions can relieve even long standing pain
