FAQ

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM A SESSION


Your initial appointment will be 90 minutes. It will consist of a pertinent medical history, visual assessment of posture, and tactile (touch) assessment of your tissue (Fascia, connective tissue) ,and treatment.  It will also include myofascial release stretching exercises and self care.

Subsequent sessions are one hour.


WHAT DO I WEAR?


Evaluation and treatment will work better if you bring with you a pair of loose fitting shorts. For women, a sports bra, bathing suit top, tank top, or a comfortable bra are best.

PLEASE NOTE:    Do not use lotions on your body on your appointment day. Skin needs to be clean and dry for this technique.


WHAT ARE THE RATES?


The initial session is $185.00 and subsequent sessions are $125.00 per hour.

Gift Certificates are available.


HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED?


A minimum of 3 sessions is recommended to begin to get a sense of the entire body complex. Because you are all unique in your healing process your results will be different from someone else. As you learn to adapt to your changing body you will learn when and how often you need treatment. You will be given home stretching exercises and this will also assist in your recovery.


HOW CAN MFR HELP ME?


Malfunction of the fascial system is due to: accidents and falls, surgeries and scars, anxiety and emotional issues, tension and stress plus years of poor posture or micro-trauma.  This causes crushing pressure on our body; its systems, organs, blood vessels, lymph vessels, nerves and muscles.  (2000lbs per square inch!)   

This in turn leads to tightness, pain and lack of motion as it pulls and twists and torques our body into DYSFUNCTION and leading ultimately to Disease Processes.  (DISEASE)


Myofascial Release Therapy TM, as taught by John F. Barnes P.T., unwinds this tension and tightness, layer by layer, allowing the body to “let go” and soften, and along with it any “holding or bracing” patterns by making space, by stretching and elongating, and re-balancing to a place of EASE.  Because our body has “tissue memory”, when restrictions are released, any memories and/or emotions connected with that particular restriction are also “released”, for total physical, emotional and energetic healing.
