Healing Hands offers different types of massages including Swedish, deep tissue, prenatal. I specialize in Myofascial Release John Barnes, PT technique. I use this technique during my massages to give the client an optimal treatment and allow for their healing process to truly begin. I believe that we do not have to live with pain and that we all have options to truly feel good, all the time. “A commitment to wellness is not when we are sick but to maintain our wellbeing”.
The doctor of the future will give no medicines, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the causes and prevention of disease. ~Thomas Edison
Myofascial Release: MFR is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. Fascia is a specialized system of the body that has an appearance similar to a spider’s web. It is a dense woven covering of every muscle, bone, nerve, artery, vein as well as organ. It is believed trauma, inflammatory response, surgical procedures all create restrictions. These restrictions can exert excessive pressure causing all kinds of symptoms producing pain, headaches or restriction of motion. Fascial restrictions affect our flexibility and stability and are determining factors in our ability to withstand stress and perform daily activities.
This massage will open the door for a new way of healing. As a client you should understand the theory behind MFR and understand that one treatment, although effective, will not completely change what years of tightness has accomplished. I have studied under the John Barnes technique of MFR who is considered to be a pioneer and the father of MFR.
