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!
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. For more information about the John Barnes technique click here.
