BREVARD COUNTY • INDIALANTIC, FLORIDA – Licensed massage therapist Kerri Geach has opened Kerri Geach East Coast Myofascial Release (MFR) in Indialantic.
The new office is located at 920 N. Highway A1A in Indialantic.
Geach has more than 17 years of experience in the medical field and brings a unique body work treatment and technique to the Space Coast.
This is the only office of its kind in the Brevard County area.
Geach is an expert level John Barnes trained MFR therapist, as well as an assistant instructor for Barnes MFR classes.
“Having worked in orthopedics as an occupational therapist for 15 years and a licensed massage therapist for eight years, the John Barnes Myofascial Release technique has completely changed my life personally and professionally,” said Geach. “I no longer feel restricted by my body and since I started solely performing this technique, my clients note a marked improvement in function and decrease in pain. I am excited and proud to be offering this body work therapy to our area.”
What is Myofascial Release (also known as MFR)?
Fascia is the thin tissue that covers every organ, muscle and its fibers (including each individual cell of the body). When the fascial system is disrupted by trauma, inflammation and surgical procedures, restrictions on structures happen within the body and this creates a “straightjacket effect.”
Fascial restrictions go unnoticed in many standard tests (x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.). MFR is a gentle stretching of the fascial system. Stretches are held for at least five minutes and can include compression.
The MFR technique is cutting-edge and invaluable when addressing any type of orthopedic injury, post surgical symptoms, scar tissue, vertigo, and much more.
