(John F Barnes’ Method, https://www.myofascialrelease.com/about/)
MFR is a 2 hands on technique. The therapist uses her hands to sink deeply into the body, feel for tension or restriction and using therapeutic pressure or pulling, to wait for the release to occur in the affected soft tissue. Soft tissue refers to any living tissue in the body, except bone. Fascia is known as connective tissue. It integrates, separates, protects and provides structure for our blood vessels, nervous system, organs, muscles and bones. Unless disrupted by surgery or significant trauma, it is continuous.
When applied, MFR is generally slow, steady and relaxing, but sometimes is more stimulating; and is always individualized. The patient is asked to quiet down and feel into his or her body for maximum therapeutic effect. No oil or cream is used. It is best skin on skin.
MFR tends to provide more lasting and meaningful results than traditional massage or stretching. This is because pressure is sustained, and the therapist waits for the physical response of the body. The therapist never forces anything to happen in the body. Stretches (hamstring stretches, i.e.) are held for at least 2 minutes in MFR.
