LIVE CHAT WITH John Barnes PT March 11, 2017

What is MFR? How safe and effective is this type of therapy?



Showing these videos will help our patients/clients, you the therapists and Myofascial Release in general.  Please watch the video above and ENJOY!


With the snow slowly melting away, I am directing my attention to the next season.  New activities can mean new areas of repetitive strain, and new needs to bring about balance in the body and mind.  This week’s focus is GOLF.

The difference between a professional PGA golfer and a social golfer is that a PGA golfer knows the importance of being in top shape. A social golfer has a lesser tendency to properly train golf specific muscles or stretch to warm-up muscles, all of which are very important in order to prevent golf injuries. And regular corrective massage sessions can help you find, your perfect golf swing.

Here are some of the most common areas of injuries for golf players:

  • low back
  • wrist
  • elbow
  • shoulder

BOOK YOUR Myofascial Release session today, and we can help you eliminate….

  • Golf related low back pain, golfer’s elbow, or shoulder pain. (breaking up muscle adhesions)
  • Increase your distance and consistency. (full range of motion means more available power and control)
  • Reduce the likelihood of a golf injury. (correct muscle imbalances and asymmetries)
  • Identify potential areas of concern. (looking for muscle tightness or weakness)
