James River MFR (myofascial release) exclusively practices authentic MFR, as taught by John F. Barnes, PT. This is very important to know for anyone seeking authentic Myofascial Release. Barnes Myofascial Release is safe, gentle and consistently effective at producing results that last.
I engage the barrier, without force, and wait there for 5 minutes or longer.
- This creates the environment for change to happen.
- For hard, pained tissue to melt and relief to finally settle in.
- For the body to soften on its own accord, as a partner in the healing process, and not by the will of any therapist.
I graduated from Institute of Massage Therapies in Richmond, VA in May 2012. I'm a state licensed massage therapist in Richmond, VA. I have been practicing John F. Barnes Myofascial Release since 2013 and have +5 years of extensive training in Barnes MFR. I stay on top of my MFR training, taking courses every year.
My business name pays homage to the James River. I have been a whitewater raft guide on it since 2001. The James has been both a very generous and humbling teacher I continue to learn from. I currently guide with Riverside Outfitters, an outstanding company that has a fun and safe time on the James!
At James River MFR, I aim to help you:
-Simple, Safe, and Peaceful-
