Myofascial Release

What is Myofascial Release Therapy the John Barnes PT LMT method?
No lotions are used during the session.  It is a safe and effective technique that applies gentle sustained pressure into connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.  Repetitive behavior, trauma both physical and emotional, inflammatory responses and surgical procedures create myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures.  These restrictions do NOT show up in many of the standard tests (x-rays, MRI or CAT scans, etc.).  Myofascial Release allows us to look at each client as a unique individual and addresses the entire myofascial mind/body complex eliminating the pressure of the restricted fascial system that causes the symptoms.  This is a clothed session with women wearing sports bra/tank top and shorts and men wearing t-shirt and shorts.
*1st initial session $125 and follow up sessions: 60 min. $105 / 45 min. $85 / 30 min. $65

Myofascial Release Scar Tissue Therapy

Myofascial Release Scar Tissue Therapy is very effective at releasing scar tissue and restoring flexibility and mobility to the affected area.

The release of scar tissue is a specialty and effective whether formed post-surgically or from injury. When we have a surgical procedure, the fascia is cut or torn and scar tissue is formed throughout the healing process. Scar tissue is a very dense and hard substance that is designed to hold our body together at the site of the surgery or injury. It serves us in this manner, however scar tissues draws up and pulls on other areas of the body, compresses the nerves, blood vessels, and underlying organs which affects physiological function and restricts physical movement. Over time this creates pain and dysfunction due to the amount of tension or pressure exerted on the underlying pain sensitive structures, When fascial restriction is present, pain and symptoms can appear to be unrelated and experienced in distal areas of the body far from the affected area.
