Myofascial Release Treatment Centers

Patients are referred to the John F. Barnes Centers in Malvern, Pennsylvania and Sedona, Arizona from around the world for the resolution of complex problems that have failed to respond to conventional medications, surgery, and therapeutic treatments.

Our Treatment Centers

We offer a multifaceted treatment approach for the ultimate in comprehensive care. What distinguishes us from other therapy centers? Our Objective at the “Sanctuary” and “Therapy on the Rocks” is to treat the CAUSE of the problem in order to eliminate the SYMPTOMS on a long term basis.

These two exceptional facilities assist patients on their journey to optimum health. Our Centers are distinct in that we treat patients one-on-one in private treatment rooms. Every patient is unique; thus our staff strives to understand each patient’s complexities and individuality taking into account health history and personal background. Hands-on Myofascial Release Treatment is customized to each patient’s needs. Patients will feel pampered and well cared for as our staff gently applies sustained Myofascial Release pressure to areas of tightness while searching for and responding to individual body responses. Our therapists treat the body as a whole and encourage patients to tune into the signals of their body to facilitate healing on the deepest level possible.
