Karen Burg, Myofascial Release Massage Therapist, Massage Therapist and Physical Therapist

CAMTC #49491

As a Massage Therapist and Physical Therapist Assistant,
I have helped people get better for over 30 years!  I'm a specialized therapist who is dedicated to the
John Barnes approach to Myofascial Release. 

Why I Use The John Barnes Myofascial Release Approach

While working as a Physical Therapist Assistant in the San Diego area, I realized early on how important the mind/body connection affected healing, and the importance of treating the whole person. I was first introduced to the John Barnes Myofascial Release approach in 1994 after a back injury. I had tried all the typical therapies where I would get a bit better, but the results didn't last. I found a Physical Therapy clinic just by chance that only practiced John Barnes MFR.  It was THE game changer!  I was able to return to all the sports I loved including swimming, kayaking, river rafting and sailing, pain free!!  I knew then I had to learn these techniques so I could help others. I attended my first John Barnes courses in 1995 and have continued my studies with him as well as participate in study groups, and being a John Barnes Myofascial Release Seminar occasional Assistant Instructor.


My Myofascial Release Therapy Experience

I have utilized his principles and techniques since day 1 of my first class. This is authentic healing and a true picture of what healthcare should look like, treating the whole body and mind. Frequently I would hear, “How come no one else has done this with me?" "This is the first time I feel like we’re on to something." "Can you come back tomorrow”?! That has always been music to my ears!
My experiences have been wide and varied throughout my Physical Therapy career.  I've worked in a multitude of clinical settings with diverse patient populations from pediatrics to seniors with varying medical diagnoses.

In 2014 I became a massage therapist so I could treat the whole body in a more holistic way while continuing to work as a Physical Therapist Assistant.  I started a part-time mobile MFR business working with friends and family which then propelled me to open Dynamic Myofascial Release in Clairemont to exclusively provide John Barnes Myofascial Release.  
My approach is gentle and intuitive, assessing the whole body, being mindful of your symptoms, but also look elsewhere for the cause.
