Myofascial Release

Congratulations to Carol Davis!

May 22, 2015 by John Barnes · No Comments

Carol has been asked to speak at the United Nations on a panel with two physicians. She will be talking about the fascia and the extracellular matrix as a facilitator of the flow of peaceful vibrations for health and wellness of the mind/body.

Carol has been teaching a series of retreats for health care professionals in the Spring and the Fall in the Catskill Mountains at Peace Village since the Fall of 2001….just after 9/11, actually.
http://www.peacevillageretreat.org/index.html

This series runs under the name of Hope in Healthcare, and each weekend retreat is designed to help healthcare professionals learn how to manage the stress and chaos that we deal with every day by learning basic coping skills, particularly meditation.

Carol, you’re awesome! I love you.

Letter of Appreciation

May 20, 2015 by John Barnes · No Comments

We received this letter of appreciation and thought we would share it with you:

 

Dear John,

 

I recently learned about Myofascial Release in a course that Dr. Christian Northrup offered on line. As soon as I heard her say that it is the ‘most important work that a person can do for their body,’ I stopped the video and immediately Googled MFR and found info about you. Then, I watched a YouTube video, or two, that you had posted. Wow, I thought. After I digested all the info, I decided that I had to find a therapist who trained under you. Again, I Googled my inquiry and found ‘Etty!’ and Amanda in Pittsburgh.

 

I have had 7 sessions – my physical body, as well as my emotional body, are benefiting tremendously. I am blessed enough to have the work done.

All I can say is – thank you GOD, and John Barnes. I hope that your life has been a richly rewarding life journey for all that you have contributed to everyone – Warmest regards,

 

All that we give in life, comes back somewhere, at some time, by someone.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sincerely,

 

John F. Barnes, PT

Over half a million miles per hour!

April 21, 2015 by John Barnes · 1 Comment

Did you know that you are moving over 514,000 miles per hour? It turns out that science has messed up the information on the solar system. It turns out that the sun is moving at 514,000 miles per hour like an incredible vortex with the planets spiraling around it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jHsq36_NTU

Look at this incredible depiction of how the solar system actually is. It’ll have an amazing impact upon you.

 

For years, people were saying that if what I was saying is true about Myofascial Release then science had to be wrong. Well, it turns out that science is now verifying everything I’ve taught for over 40 years. Science has been wrong in many areas. I greatly respect the scientists who study and develop bridges and computers, but unfortunately, because they ignored consciousness in the human being; they made some serious mistakes.

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 · 2 Comments

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.
