July 24, 2015 by John Barnes · No Comments

Phew!!

Good news! We had an enormous outpouring of requests for us to try to find additional space because so many people were looking forward to the Quantum Leap seminar. We had searched the entire Key West area and at the last minute space became available at the hotel so we secured it.

If you want to attend the Quantum Leap seminar, register as soon as possible since it will probably fill up quickly again. Also, make your hotel reservations as soon as possible so you’re not disappointed.

We encourage students to make reservations at the Doubletree Hilton Grand Key West. The phone number is 305-293-1818 and the group code for the discounted rate is MYO. http://doubletree3.hilton.com/…/doubletree-resor…/index.html

We look forward to you joining us for this exciting adventure!

To register, call our seminar department at 800-327-2425 ext. 4.

Sold Out!

July 16, 2015 by John Barnes · No Comments

Those of you who missed out on registering for Quantum Leap can be put on a waiting list, although it’s not often people cancel out of this seminar. You should consider taking Rebounding or Cervical-Thoracic in Key West or if you’re ready, MFR III, which also sells out very quickly. Our courses are exploding so try not to wait until the last minute to register so you can avoid disappointment and missing these incredible seminars.

 

To register for Rebounding or Cervical-Thoracic, contact our seminar department at 800-327-2425 ext. 4.

My Debilitating Pain

June 12, 2015 by John Barnes · 1 Comment

Let me take you back in time to the day of my injury—the day my life changed. I was a very good athlete when I was younger. I played football, ran track, went skiing, rode motorcycles and was involved in competitive karate and power lifting. In a blinding flash, at the age of 19, all of those things I loved were taken from me.

I had gone to the gym to work out with weights, because I was getting ready for an upcoming power lifting competition. There was no one else in the gym. I proceeded to do bench presses and shoulder work, then went on to squats. No one was there to spot me.

I was doing high-repetition squats, holding more than 300 pounds, when I exhausted my muscles to the point where I couldn’t get up. I needed help.

I had been a gymnast when I was younger, so I thought I could do a back roll to get myself out of my dilemma—but when you have a 300-pound bar in your hands, your hands won’t let go, so I crashed into the ground with enormous force into my sacrum and lumbar area.

I lay there stunned; I couldn’t move my legs. My body was numb from the waist down.

Then, slowly, the numbness wore off—and horrible pain began. Eventually, I managed to move my legs, but I knew, in that instant, everything I loved, motion and competition, was taken from me. In an instant, my life changed.

Congratulations, Aaron!

June 9, 2015 by John Barnes · No Comments

Congratulations, Aaron!

I want to congratulate Aaron LeBauer for the honor he received for being one of the best therapists in North Carolina.  Aaron and I have known each other for quite a while. I first met Aaron in California where he was a therapist and a very high level cyclist.  He was and remains to be an incredible athlete.  Aaron had created a program to help therapists develop a cash based Myofascial Release practice. (http://lebauerconsulting.com/the-anatomy-of-a-physical-therapy-cash-practice/) (http://www.lebauerpt.com/) I would highly recommend that those of you who are interested look into it. I look forward to seeing you again, Aaron. I am proud of you. Love, John

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.

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 · 2 Comments

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.
