Proof!

February 20, 2015 by John Barnes · 1 Comment

Rob Crampton, a Myofascial Release therapist, had just mentioned this new research that was published in Scientific American recently. It verifies what John has been teaching for so long now. You can read about it here: http://www.tokseminars.org/Science_News_of_the_Day/Entries/2014/10/8_Twists_of_Fate_-_Genes_change_by_pushes_and_pulls,_not_mutation.html

 

John has recently written an article on this as well. Here is a link to view his article: http://www.massagemag.com/therapeutic-insight-the-john-f-barnes-myofascial-release-perspective-how-mechanotransduction-may-affect-cells-27154/

 

Your comments are always welcome.

Biotensegrity

February 5, 2015 by John Barnes · 1 Comment

Dr. Stephen Levin is an orthopedic surgeon and considered to be one of the world’s leading experts in biotensegrity. He is a friend of John Barnes and is the author of Chapter 4 (The Myofascial-Skeletal Truss: A Systems Science Analysis) in John’s book Myofascial Release; The Search for Excellence.  Talk about being ahead of the times: John’s book was written over 25 years ago and published in 1990!

 

We wanted to let you know that he is going to be the keynote speaker at a special meeting on biotensegrity with some of the world’s leading experts in Washington, DC the day before the Fascia Research Congress. The Biotensegrity open meeting will be at the Hyatt on September 17th, 2015 where the International Fascia Research Congress is being held. (http://www.biotensegrity.com/(http://www.dcbig.org/styled-4/index.html)

 

It’s nice that the world’s leading experts now are discovering what we have all known and practiced for so long.

Exciting news!

January 7, 2015 by John Barnes · 2 Comments

Exciting news! Dr. Guimberteau has just finalized his new book  The Architecture of Living Fascia: The Extracellular Matrix and Cells Revealed Through Endoscopy and is scheduled to be published in late summer, 2015.

Dr. Guimberteau asked John to share his perspective of Myofascial Release in his new book. We were just informed that John’s contribution was approved. John had the opportunity to read the first several chapters and was extremely impressed. He believes it will be an important contribution for all of us as therapists and physicians and will be a valuable resource for referring physicians to show the important new findings on fascia.

Below is a thank you note from Dr. Guimberteau and his publisher, Andrew Stevenson. This is one of the many high definition digital video images that will be throughout his amazing book. We will keep you all informed when the book becomes available for purchase.

We are totally connected

December 30, 2014 by John Barnes · 3 Comments

The universe as perceived by Newton and Descartes is a giant machine that functions precisely, logically, sequentially, and correctly. This characterized by arrogance because it allows for only one correct solution. In the field of medical science, this paradigm has reduced human illness to the “biochemistry of disease,” completely losing sight of the fact that disease or dysfunction is part of a whole person.

Since the Cartesian era, Western traditional medicine has been dominated by reductionist methodology, which tries to explain life by examining the tiniest pieces for it. In other works, the reductionist argues that if you understand everything about the ingredients, you understand everything about the whole. The debatable reasoning of the staunch reductionist is chilling and impersonal: He has eliminated from his model of reality the effect of the mind, emotions, and meaning in life. Essentially, the reductionists are saying that brain function, and feelings of fear, sorrow and joy, etc., are nothing more than chemical reactions. That this model had reached its limits and has crossed into absurdity is obvious. The attempt to fragment humans and their health has been disastrous.

In life, we are totally connected via the fascia system; every system is connected, every cell is connected. This helps us treat the totality of the human being.

Move into Stillness

December 22, 2014 by John Barnes · No Comments

“Dear fellow MFR therapists and friends it is with deep sadness that I inform you of the passing today of my friend and our colleague Michael Boals. May he rest in peace.”

- Michael J. Aronoff

 

I was wondering if we could all get together tonight at 8:15 ET and move into stillness, picturing Michael and sending him as much love as we can. Say whatever you want to say to him or we maybe could all sing or say 3 times as we hold our hearts: “All I ask of you is to remember me loving you!”

JFB and MBoals

 

 

Love,

John
