Cancer Cells

John F. Barnes, PT spoke frequently about both Interleukin 6 and Interleukin 8, and the role they play in cancer, during the last few classes I’ve taken of his. I found this TED talk interesting because the speaker, Hasini Jayatilaka talks about how cancer cells communicate and coordinate their movement depending on how close they are in proximity to each other. I don’t personally understand all the scientific details to this (nor do I want to, to be honest) but I do understand that one of the many, and major benefits of Johns’ Myofascial Release techniques is “taking the straight jacket off the system”. Clients frequently report feeling “more space” in their bodies. This, it turns out, is extremely important for cellular health. I encourage you to keep this very important fact in mind as you listen to this scientist.
