About the Author

Not only is Cathy a physical therapist, but she is also someone who suffered from debilitating chronic pain for years. This is what led her to trying myofasical release as a treatment option.

Once she realized that myofascial release was the missing piece that was able to help with her overall healing, she began taking the classes offered by John F. Barnes, PT. She quickly realized that this technique was extremely effective. And that by learning this technique she would not only be able to help herself, but also help her clients.

Cathy had the opportunity to work at one of John’s treatment centers for over two years which has helped her become an expert in the field of myofascial release.

This book is a compilation of simple answers to the questions that are most frequently asked by patients and therapists. It is a very valuable tool in the healing process.
