Frequently Asked Questions

Who Would Benefit From Myofascial Release?
Everyone! Every body is composed of fascia. It is a web that is from head to toe and is interwoven throughout your muscles, nerves, organs, etc.
How we use our bodies day in and day out over the years, coupled with any type of trauma, physical or emotional, plays a role into how the fascia becomes tight or hardened. If you experience chronic to debilitating pain where your quality of life is affected, Myofascial Release (MFR) can help.
Because fascia does not show up on standard medical tests, western medicine does not comprehend how the fascial system becomes the culprit in creating pain patterns.  John Barnes’ MFR is one of the most effective methods for relieving pain, restoring mobility, improving posture and returning the body to a state of balance, health, and well-being. Myofascial Release is a modality that reaches deeper than other modalities and creates lasting change.


What Do I Wear To Treatment?

MFR is performed on bare skin, but being fully undressed is not necessary. Unlike the undressed-and-covered-up approach of most bodywork, our aim is to facilitate movement and freedom. The best attire is a two-piece bathing suit or shorts and tank top or sports bra for women, and loose gym shorts for men. And because MFR is performed on the skin, please refrain from using any lotions or creams on the day of your visit, as this will make treatment difficult.

How Will I Feel When I’m Done With An MFR Session?

Following your session, you will typically feel very relaxed. Some people have increased energy, heightened awareness, and greater productivity, lasting for days. And others feel the need to rest. Listen to your body!  On occasion, you may feel a bit worse before feeling better.  While it may be uncomfortable, don't be alarmed! This is part of the healing process. 
We recommend drinking plenty of water for 24-48 hours post treatment

Are Gratuities Expected or Accepted?

No, but positive reviews on Google, Yelp, social media, and/or referring your friends and family is much appreciated!
