The John F Barnes Myofascial Release is a technique which releases fascial restrictions throughout the entirety of the body. The fascia is the connective tissue that surrounds and supports the muscles and other organs in the body. The technique uses gentle sustained pressure to change in the ground substance of the fascial system, which eliminates chronic holding patterns and reduces pain in the body/mind complex. Magdalena’s services are rooted with John F Barnes principles, which allow one’s body to innately self-correct and heal.

Magdalena carries the utmost respect for all forms of health care and medicine in which the health and wellbeing of the patient are of highest priority.
