The John Barnes Myofascial Release Approach
The restrictions that contribute to physical pain are within the fascial system or recently “discovered new organ” Interstitium (pictured to the right) which is a “web” of elastin and collagen that floats in a gelatinous ground substance that creates the connective tissue that lies under your skin; surrounding, protecting and interpenetrating every muscle, bone, nerve, blood vessel and organ; down to the very cells themselves. Fascia is an uninterrupted, moveable tissue that is involved in every movement, action and process within the body . It is extremely important to our body and vastly ignored by the medical community, causing every type of pain label that exists. Please understand that there are medical conditions that are what they are, but the fascial system surrounding it becomes so restricted the body cannot heal itself.
In laymen's terms: Think of an orange... When you pull back the skin you see white stuff, which is the same as the fascia under our skin. Then you see the white stuff separating the slices, which is the same as fascia between and around all of organs, cells, muscles, etc. Then when you bight into a slice you see the white stuff through out, which is the same as fascia woven into all our body, throughout everything.
Fascia is everywhere and everything, from our head to our toes. The image below of the white heart is called the ghost heart, it is the fascia around our heart without any other body material. It still looks like a heart. Now image that had surgery, trauma or tightness from sadness. How would that affect the operation of the heart?
It is no wonder we all have disfunction and pain, starting from birth.
Myofascial Release Rebounding works with the restrictions within the body by shaking it up! Sounds strange and it usually feels strange the first time you do it. The therapist will rock your body at various and random speeds to shake up your system. This technique tends to distract you from your holding patterns, stress patterns, and get you out of your head. When you are out of your head you are feeling your body and being a part of the here and now.
Most people feel various physical symptoms during a treatment while they process a physical, mental and/or emotional injury. These injuries created fascia restrictions and hold patterns.
