"When I get off Liana’s table I not only feel better but my attitude about my health and life have changed. She reminds me that I am in control of my health. Through the simple self-treatment techniques she taught me I can significantly lower my blood pressure in a short time. I'm now on half the medication I was taking a year ago as a result of my mfr treatments with her."

Myofascial release (MFR) is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.

Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures that do not show up in many of the standard tests (x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.

Bodyfirst Myofascial Release specializes in the John F. Barnes’ Myofascial Release Approach® which is considered to be the ultimate therapy that is safe, gentle and consistently effective in producing results that last.

Video of Living Fascia: Fascia is a dense connective tissue that covers the human body from head to toe. There are many layers of fascia within us which lend internal strength and support to our bodies. With a tensile strength of up to 2,000 pounds of pressure per square inch, fascia is a powerful force within you.  It is your shock absorption system.

Fascia surrounds every muscle, bone and organ within the body and even surrounds and penetrates every cell. So healthy fascia is very important for everything from proper mobility, strength & flexibility to healthy bones, organs & glands.

Fascia has the the power to exert enormous unseen pressure on pain sensitive structures in your body.  Unseen even in X-rays, CAT scans and MRIs, fascial restrictions are completely invisible and yet they are responsible for the pains and problems in your body.  Releasing the fascia can bring incredible relief and help you regain or maintain good health.
