Jeff Tatlonghari, Licensed Occupational Therapist & Myofascial Release practitioner

Jeff was raised in Central Florida, and in 1995 he graduated from the University of Central Florida with his degree in Cardiopulmonary Sciences. His first job in healthcare was at Arnold Palmer Hospital as a Respiratory Therapist in the neonatal and pediatric acute, intensive, step-down and general care settings.

After two years in this role, he was hungry for an opportunity to use his creativity in healthcare, deepen his connection with his patients,  and expand his horizons into other areas. In 2001, he graduated from Florida International University in Occupational Therapy, and has been practicing since then in acute care, inpatient, outpatient, home care and skilled nursing/long term care settings as a licensed occupational therapist.

Of the hundreds of hours of continued education required, Jeff has realized the contributions of two approaches that were not only life changing, but perspective enhancing for himself and those to whom he has provided care.  Jeff has achieved certification and advanced training in Neuro IFRAH(R) through Waleed Al-Oboudi, where he specialized in the assessment, treatment and management of individuals affected by stroke or brain injury. In 2018, Jeff took his first course in John F. Barnes’ Myofascial Release Approach. To date, he has taken the following MFR courses: MFR 1, MFR 2 and Unwinding.

As a native Floridian, Jeff is an avid surfer. Nearly every day, he spends time at the Cocoa Beach Pier and is a familiar face in the area. He is a loving husband, father to two young men and two dogs, and a supportive son and brother.
