Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create Myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures that do not show up in many of the standard tests (x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.) 


"The medical approach is to drug patients so they temporarily are free from pain, but does nothing about the “straight-jacket” of pressure that is causing the pain. Traditional physical, occupational and massage therapy treats the symptoms caused by the pressure of the "straightjacket” of the Myofascial system, but does nothing about the “straightjacket” of pressure that causes and perpetuates the symptoms. This is why so many patients only have temporary results never seeming to get better with traditional therapy. Only Myofascial Release treats the entire Myofascial mind/body complex eliminating the pressure of the restricted Myofascial system (the straightjacket) that causes the symptoms.” ~ John F. Barnes


Prenatal Massage


Prenatal massage is safe throughout any point of the pregnancy.  The pressure of the massage is altered and certain pressure points are avoided to provide safety to the fetus and mother.  The position for prenatal massage is side-lying with the use of pillows for support.


Studies have indicated that massage therapy during pregnancy can relieve muscle and joint pain, reduce edema, improve overall circulation, reduce stress and anxiety, improve outcome of labor and ease labor pain.  Sciatic nerve pain is one of the most common issues that women have late in their pregnancies.  Massage releases the tension of muscles, which then reduces pressure on the nerves.
