About Body and Soul Wellness Center
Live A Pain Free Active Lifestyle
Our Center’s purpose is to assist and facilitate individuals in their desire to live a pain-free, active lifestyle. We are a unique wellness center specializing in “THE JOHN F. BARNES” MYOFASCIAL RELEASE APPROACH. Combining our experience and knowledge of manual therapy, therapeutic and postural alignment exercise with MFR, we have profound results in treating chronic pain and sports injuries with people who have tried traditional therapy with limited results. If you have tried other therapies, medicine or surgery and are still in pain, or would like to have more flexibility and energy, look no further.
Myofascial Release (MFR) is the ultimate hands-on whole body therapy that is safe, gentle and profoundly effective. MFR is performed directly on the skin without oils, creams, or machinery. The therapist locates restricted areas in the body then applies a precise amount pressure that is held (5 minutes or longer) until the connective tissue (fascia) organically releases.
Fascia is a three dimensional, continuous web of connective tissue that surrounds and embeds every organ, muscle, and bone from head to foot. Healthy fascia allows us to move, bend, and flex effortlessly and easily. Because of its vast connection down to the cellular level, it profoundly influences all structures and systems of the body. Even though fascia has a complete and total effect on our health and well-being, it is not detected in standard tests such as x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc. Fascia is often the culprit in “undiagnosed pain of unknown origin”. In fact, malfunction of the fascial system due to trauma, surgery, or inflammation can create a binding down effect resulting in abnormal pressure (as much as 2,000 lbs. per square inch) on nerves, muscles, bones and organs. Acting like a straight jacket and restricting our movement and causing pain.
Dysfunction and disease are caused by prolonged inflammatory response. MFR allows chronic inflammation response to resolve by removing the enormous pressure of myofascial restrictions on pain sensitive structures in the body. Thus, alleviating symptoms and allowing the body’s natural healing capacity to function properly.
For over 30 years, we have been using advanced manual therapy techniques. We have successfully treated thousands of people that suffer from chronic pain and sports injuries. Our approach is an integration of MYOFASCIAL RELEASE, advanced manual therapy, ASSISTED STRETCHING and POSTURE CORRECTIVE EXERCISE cultivated over the years. Utilizing this integration, we are able to facilitate the healing process of the body in order to live pain free.
We invite you to experience how myofascial release and posture alignment exercise can change your life!
It is our mission to provide you with the best health and wellness services in a safe, compassionate environment.
