Studying with John F. Barnes, PT

My name is Lindsay Arbuckle Courcelle and I am a Certified Massage Therapist specializing in Myofascial Release.

For my adult life, I’ve been committed to helping people to feel empowered in their own health and wellness. My work with our farm business, Alchemy Gardens, has allowed me to do this by growing fresh produce, sharing recipes, and teaching people of all ages how to grow their own food. But I still suffered from my own chronic pain, which no amount of vegetables could heal.

I went to massage therapy school at the Green Mountain Institute for Integrative Therapy, studying Swedish massage techniques, acupressure, polarity therapy, sports massage, and pregnancy massage. It wasn’t until I experienced my first Myofascial Release (MFR) treatment, however, that I felt my own chronic pain decreasing. As soon as I attended my first MFR seminar taught by John F. Barnes, I knew I had found my calling and special way to help people heal themselves. Since 2014, I've trained extensively in the John F. Barnes MFR Approach, including working side by side with John in his Malvern, PA clinic, The Sanctuary and receiving my own intensive treatment as a patient at Therapy on the Rocks in Sedona, AZ.

Now I’ve decided to offer strictly MFR rather than massage therapy because I believe it is truly the best approach for helping people to find long-lasting pain relief, wellness, and vitality. MFR treatments are relaxing and address the underlying causes of dysfunction. It has changed my life, and the lives of my clients.

JFB MFR Courses include: MFR I, MFR II, Unwinding, Rebounding, Myofascial Mobilization, Fascial Pelvis, Cervical Thoracic, Women's Health Seminar, Pediatrics, Skill Enhancement Seminar
