EP. 126 Mark Barnes and the NEW MFR Directory
THE MFR COACH'S PODCAST
EP. 126 Mark Barnes and the NEW MFR Directory
7/24/2023

One of the first things I encourage my coaching clients is to get listed in the MFR Directory.

The John F. Barnes MFR Directory is a public, searchable database for highly skilled MFR therapists who have studied under John F. Barnes. The Directory makes it easy for potential clients to find a therapist who can address specific concerns, has a particular specialty, and/or practices close by.

The MFR Directory (now MFR Health), lists over 1,000 John F. Barnes-trained providers, has had over 1 million unique visitors seeking myofascial release treatment, and has facilitated over 200,000 leads to its listed providers.

In this episode, I have the amazing opportunity to speak with the founder and developer of the MFR Directory, Dr. Mark Barnes.

Dr. Barnes is an Exercise Physiologist and Doctor of Physical Therapy with over 30 years of clinical experience. He has successfully owned and operated various businesses in the fields of physical and occupational therapy.

In 1997, Mark published a groundbreaking paper titled "The Basic Science of Myofascial Release" in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies. This influential work explored the cybernetic systems science nature of fascia and presented the scientific rationale behind myofascial release as an effective approach for improving structural, physiological, and metabolic health in patients experiencing pain.

With inspiration and insight from his father, Mark developed the Equine MFR approach and has trained therapists in this approach over the last 15 years. He also taught his protocols at CSU Equine Science Program and treated horses at the CSU Large Animal Clinic.

Mark's dedication to patient care continues through his hybrid digital health clinic, BackLab, where he combines traditional outpatient services with an innovative digital health approach. Additionally, he leads his telehealth company, Orbit Telehealth, while actively publishing his clinical protocols. Beyond his professional achievements, Mark enjoys pursuing his passion for surfing in the beautiful waves of Mexico.

If you are a John Barnes-trained MFR therapist who wants to feel better in your practice, group coaching can help you regardless of the current stage of your journey.

“I wanted to celebrate with you that I made over 11K for the month of November! Cheers! Let’s do a happy dance!

I’m also celebrating not letting myself worry about money over the holidays! Splurging a bit more for presents to put under the tree. The last couple of years around this time have been pretty negative because of money issues.

Thank you for helping me get out of that mindset! You Rock and are helping so many people!”

"Before joining Group Coaching nothing was wrong necessarily, I was just floating along. I figured success will come at some point. I opened my doors, started getting my hands on people, and thought the rest would speak for itself - yay! But unfortunately, it wasn’t a Cinderella story.

When I signed up for coaching in 2021, I just wanted to feel a little better. I wanted to see what was possible for my business.

Since then, I’ve doubled my income.

2019 - $47,0060
2020 - $50,363
2021(started coaching) - $95,795

I cleared $100k by September 2022, even with 6 weeks of time off.”
