Myofascial Release Offered at No Worries Natural Medicine




Nathan Thorpe, Licensed Massage Therapist, is now offering The John Barnes method of Myofascial Release. Branes describes fascia as a “specialized system of the body that has an appearance similar to a spider's web or a sweater. Fascia is very densely woven, covering and interpenetrating every muscle, bone, nerve, artery and vein, as well as, all of our internal organs including the heart, lungs, brain and spinal cord. The fascial system is one continuous structure that exists from head to toe without interruption. Each part of the entire body is connected to every other part by the fascia, like the yarn in a sweater.”

“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 resulting in pain and dysfunction,” says Thorpe. “Back pain, for example, may be caused by a tilted pelvis that in turn causes the vertebra to become compacted due to fascial restrictions and the shortening of muscles in the legs from extend periods of sitting. This “low back pain” is just a symptom of a deeper issue. Myofasical Release looks at the body as a whole and addresses the root cause of the symptom.”

Nathan Thorpe works at No Worries Natural Medicine located at 325 5th Ave, Ste 205, Indialantic. For more information, call 321-961-8243 or visit NoWorriesNaturalMedicine.com.
