Upon being introduced to the John Barnes Approach to Myofascial
Release, David immediately recognized that the therapeutic techniques of
“MFR” went far beyond massage and traditional physical therapies to promote recovery from
injuries, scar tissue and chronic holding patterns. With the realization that “MFR” Therapy
produces sustainable pain relief, David began intensive study and training with John Barnes
PT. David has completed over 500 hours of massage and MFR training. He has helped
countless individuals move out of chronic pain to recovery.
