Training & Certification

Shannon Whitall, owner and founder of San Diego Myofascial Release, is a Licensed Massage/ Expert MFR Therapist who practices in  La Mesa, CA.  She graduated in 1999 from the Academy of Health Professions and has also studied extensively and directly under John F. Barnes, founder of the John F. Barnes Myofascial Release Approach®.  She is licensed to practice bodywork by the California Massage Therapy Council.
Having practiced bodywork for 22 years now, she is highly experienced. However, she believes that one can never fully master something.  So, she continues to educate herself, always challenging herself to grow in knowledge, expertise and ever improving her therapy skills.

Finding the John F. Barnes' Myofascial Release Approach®  to be a superior therapy that consistently produces positive, long lasting results, she founded San Diego Myofascial Release as a specialized therapy center that exclusively provides this form of myofascial release, for the treatment of chronic pain, scar release and trauma release, to the city of San Diego.
