Welcome to Energy Works Myofascial Release!

Energy Works Myofascial Release is conveniently located in downtown Duluth with on-street parking and parking ramp accessibility. We offer a quiet and comfortable treatment room to enhance your healing experience.

Energy Works Myofascial Release utilizes the John F. Barnes approach to treating pain and dysfunction. Myofascial release (MFR) is a gentle and effective hands-on therapy that applies myofascial stretching to eliminate pain, restore range of motion, and function when other treatments modalities have been temporary or ineffective. Our goal is to help you regain function and mobility so you can get back to the activities you enjoy.

 

Are You Tired of Any of the Following?

 

Relax, Refresh, Renew

* Having chronic pain and being told you need to live with it?

* Not being able to enjoy the activities you used to enjoy?

* Seeking medical attention that does not relieve your symptoms?

* Being told there is nothing wrong with you or your loved one yet you continue to suffer?

* Taking pain pills just to make it through the day?

 

 

 

“Feel the Pain, Look Elsewhere for the Cause”

Discover how treating the whole body is more effective than treating localized areas of the body where symptoms are present or masking symptoms with pain medication.

MFR is successful in helping relieve or eliminate symptoms from a variety of problems.  More often then not, the cause of pain or dysfunction comes from one or more areas of the body, not just the area where the symptoms are present.  The “symptom” is the culmination of past trauma, repetitive use and abuse, emotional, and structural changes where the body can no longer compensate effectively.
