The John F. Barnes method of Myofascial Release is a type of holistic bodywork that reduces pain and inflammation in the body. It improves movement in the joints by helping to reduce restrictions in the soft tissue of the body.


Fascia is a fibrous connective tissue that permeates our bodies from head to toe. It binds and connects our muscles, nerves, blood vessels, and organs together. It is similar to electrical wiring in which our life force energy runs through. It can become blocked or restricted by trauma. Trauma can be physical, emotional, or spiritual. Myofascial Release is a technique to unwind this tension by sustaining direct pressure in the areas of restricted fascia to soften the body, so our life force energy can run more freely through it.





At Green Heart Myofascial Release we customize a treatment plan by conducting a comprehensive evaluation and postural analysis. We instruct our clients in self treatment techniques and a home program that continues the process of healing even after the session. We look at the whole body. Everything is connected and each system of the body is interdependent on each other. For example, a misaligned pelvis from soft tissue restrictions can result in headaches or neck pain. The misalignment and soft tissue restrictions can create an imbalance in the body that can have direct effects on other parts of the body that don’t appear connected.
