Myofascial Release is a gentle, sustained pressure on areas of the body that are tight, hard or tender. Called restrictions, they are often symptoms of a particular condition you may have been treated for. MFR treats not merely the symptom but a release often begins a chain reaction to an unfelt source. By listening to and treating the entire body, long-held pain and tension is relieved and mobility restored.
MFR helps to relieve:
GREG GITS, LMT, JFB Myofascial Release Therapist, Expert
As an MFR client for 12 years I was inspired by the profound relief of life-long health challenges to study with John Barnes and become an MFR therapist myself. The gift of being empowered to affect my own health has inspired me to do the same for others.
Past physical trauma and buried emotional pain caused great discomfort in my body. Through working with Greg I’ve experienced relief in both areas. His holistic approach has brought relief and healing. Greg’s innate ability along with his intense training makes him an effective MFR Therapist.
I can't speak highly enough of Greg as a human being and an MFR therapist. I've been through a series of health set backs, including cancer, in the past year. Working with Greg I now have the ability to feel my body and help in my own healing.
Fascia is another name for the three dimensional connective tissue that extends throughout the body, supporting, protecting and infusing all bodily systems down to the cellular level. The fascial system affects all bodily functions: muscular, metabolic, neurological cellular etc. Through physical or emotional trauma, inflammation, repetitive behavior or poor posture, fascia tends to tighten down protectively (as much as 2000 lbs per square inch), interrupting the body's normal functioning, causing pain, loss of function and can lead to more serious conditions. As an unbroken network running head to toe, when tension or a restriction occur somewhere in the body, like a sweater being pulled, other areas feel the tightening and may also experience pain and begin to lose mobility.
