Welcome to our community of massage, bodywork and reflexology practitioners. Therapists, if it's been more than two weeks, it's time for your massage.

It's a great education tool to learn how the fascial and the body are intertwined, etc. He used to sell it to his clients because it really helped them understand how important the fascia work is and ultimately the dvd reinforced what he(rolfer) was saying all along. Other people always promote us better than we promote ourselves. So basically it's a marketing tool(or can be used that way.)
In other words from another reader,"I love having The Fireside Chat in my office. It is truly an important ‘tool’ for the MFR toolbox. I purchased a small DVD player that I run continuously in the lobby with either the Fireside Chat or “Strolling Under the Skin” playing so that patients can see & hear John in person and/or get an up close and personal view of live fascia! As humans, we have a multitude of senses. Some of us learn better by touch or experiencing touch, some by reading or hearing and some by seeing. "

OK, so I'll tell you my reason for not wanting to take the JB seminars up to this point.
This may sound stupid, but I don't like the smugness Mr. Barnes appears to exude on the covers of the phamplets that I receive. What can I say. The picture rubs me the wrong way.
While I by no means consider myself up on the latest science, I am honest with the therapists who take my trainings. The science boat has really yet to land when it comes to fascia proof. Much of what is being reported and written about from the folks at the Fascia Congress relates to the principles of Rolfing/SI, which while they seem quite similar, have some basic differences that should not allow a transfer of proof from Rolfing to MFR as I know it. As a result, I tell therapist that at this time there is no consensus on how this works, so why should I stand there and knowingly try to deceive them I do tell the the theory of mechanical change, as well as the newer theories of neurological change, but I treat it all as theory. To stand in front of smart people and attempt to lead them on with nonsense gibberish of quantum physics explanations is absurd. But some continue to do so.
