Women's Health

While myofascial release treats the whole body and the whole person, it is important to acknowledge the role of the pelvic floor in overall health. There is also importance in treating newborns immediately following delivery and through childhood to help resolve birthing traumas and prevent future issues. So many issues and symptoms that people experience can be helped through this specialized treatment. 


Being a woman is an amazing experience. But it also comes with challenges. These challenges are not always immediately apparent, but eventually can become evident in our bodies, our minds and our health. John F. Barnes Myofascial Release can address the fascial restrictions creating the following:
