Fascia is gaining recognition as an incredibly important connective tissue for your preventative health as well as the source of constrictions that result from injury or over use that cause chronic pain.

This unique workshop allows for plenty of hands on myofascial release from Tara in the restorative positions.  If you have attended Tara’s weekly class and wanted “more” or if you are curious about the modality of myofascial release as bodywork, this workshop is for you!

The psoas muscle is not only an important core and structural muscle, it holds deep meaning for our psyche being a location where “emotional debris” can be held.  The John Barnes technique of myofascial release with it’s gentle holds is an ideal modality for releasing this muscle to experience greater freedom in your physical and emotional lives.
Tara Scarborough, RN, LMBT #20125 will guide you through several restorative poses designed to soften this muscle.  Hands on MFR will include a deep psoas release and we’ll finish up with some occipital and cranial work to integrate the experience

Class size is limited to only 4 participants so sign up early!

What is Myofascial Release (John Barnes technique)? 
The John Barnes technique of myofascial release is a gentle hands on modality.  The therapist uses gentle sustained pressure held a minimum of 3 minutes to affect the fascia allowing it to elongate and rehydrate the ground matrix of the tissues.  This is highly effective in treating chronic pain at its source.  The pressure is held without lubricants on the skin so that the fascia is able to be gently stretched without the therapist’s hands sliding.  Myofascial release has been found to be highly effective in treating a myriad of conditions from TMJ dysfunction to urinary issues to fibromyalgia and much more.  It is also a recommended adjunct to PT after surgery.
