Bodywork through


A hands-on technique used to find and relieve physical, emotional, and mental pain.




Why Bodywork?

The human body is a wonderful self-regulating and efficient mechanism. It simply requires proper maintenance and fuel to stay healthy, strong, and fully functional. When a body is aligned it moves with greater ease. It requires less energy to function. Good posture is effortless and breathing is easier. The body becomes more flexible, more coordinated.


What is the Fascial system?

The Fascial system is the biological fabric that holds us together. It is our connective tissue network and, as the largest system in our body, it goes through and around every cell including nerves, blood vessels, muscles, bones, and organs. Because the fascial system is one fabric that holds us together, restriction in one area of our body can affect movement and create symptoms elsewhere. Additionally, stress and trauma inhibit the fascia’s resilience resulting in physical, mental, and emotional pain.

If you have a restriction or pain in one area of your body, your body will adapt and compensate for it by using muscles and fascia. Fascia will shorten or tighten to help the muscles because muscles cannot hold the extra tension alone. As a result, your posture can change to accommodate this and thus begins a process of negative cascading events. Fascia is a major player in every movement you make and every injury you’ve ever had.


What is MFR?

MFR is a holistic, gentle, hands-on technique used to find and relieve physical, emotional, and mental pain (past and present) in the fascia. Through assessment and a series of movements encouraged by you, you’re able to release restrictions in the fascia. These instinctual movements reprogram the nervous system and are successful in breaking your pain and chronic cycles.

The John F. Barnes Myofascial Release Approach™ can be applied anywhere on the body to address tightness, tension, pain, and other symptoms. MFR is the only form of therapy that addresses all elements of the connective tissue. Myofascial Release Articles by John F. Barnes can be found at


Before seeing Melinda, I had just experienced a bad crash on my dirt bike and was diagnosed with a concussion. I saw Melinda for two sessions of MFR. Before our first session, I was in terrible pain and had a tough time walking. As soon as the first session started I began to feel relief, my pain was drastically reduced and my mobility was back. After the second session, I was feeling brand new and was back on my dirt bike just two weeks after my crash! Melinda’s strong healing energy along with her MFR expertise is definitely worth it.
