Amanda Oswald Advanced Myofascial Release Accreditation

by | Jul 8, 2011 | Practice News | 0 comments

Amanda Oswald of the Pain Care Clinic has achieved elite Advanced Myofascial Release Practitioner status through the John F Barnes Myofascial Release Therapy Centre in the USA.

John F Barnes is a physiotherapist with 50 years experience and is internationally recognised as a leading trainer and authority on myofascial release (MFR). His approach to MFR teaches structural techniques but goes beyond the purely physical to recognise the unconscious mind-body connection and emphasise the effectiveness of myofascial release in treating traumatic injuries and easing the emotional issues connected with physical pain.

John Barnes explains his myofascial release training system saying: ‘Therapists have been trained to treat a wide variety of clients with myofascial problems in a comprehensive, effective and caring manner. Each therapist is rated as novice, intermediate or advanced. The level of proficiency is based on completed training.’

In achieving the status of Advanced Myofascial Release Practitioner Amanda Oswald joins just a handful of elite therapists whose training includes 180+ hours of myofascial release instruction, including a one week internship at Therapy on the Rocks in Arizona working alongside John Barnes and his team of highly skilled myofascial release therapists.

Speaking about her experience Amanda Oswald said ‘the depth of knowledge and experience I have gained over my 18 months of training with John Barnes has taken my hands-on practice to new levels and given me the skills to deal confidently with trauma, complex injuries and chronic pain conditions.’
