Lisa Ganfield, Founder, OTR/L, CHT, NBCOT, Senior Instructor for John F. Barnes Treatment Centers and Seminars
Lisa has been a licensed Occupational Therapist since 1982 and a Certified Hand Therapist since 1991. She has completed all of the John F. Barnes MFR courses, beginning in 1989. Lisa has repeated the courses multiple times and has been a Senior Instructor for the MFR Seminars and Treatment Centers since 2004. She also leads the Chicago Area MFR Study Group.
In addition to her specialty in Myofascial Release and Hand and Upper Extremity injuries, Lisa has taken and treats using John Upledger, D.O. Cranial Sacral I and II, and all four levels of Visceral Manipulation, as well as Neuromanipulation. She has taken Lymphatic Drainage I, Zero Balancing I, and has advanced dialoging skills with Upledger's HCT I and II, and is a certified Kinesio Taping Practitioner.
The staff at Ganfield Therapeutics is highly knowledgable in the Barnes MFR method, Upledger Craniosacral, Visceral Manipulation, Lymphatic Drainage, Trager, and Zero Balancing techniques. In conjunction with traditional PT/OT treatment, she feels, MFR is the missing link to successful outcomes.
