Jeff Tatlonghari, Licensed Occupational Therapist (TN and FL) & 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 John F. Barnes’ Myofascial Release courses: MFR I, MFR II, Unwinding, Fascial Pelvis (x2), Skill Enhancement Seminar, Cervical Thoracic, Rebounding, Fascial Cranium, Equine MFR I, Quantum Leap, and Advanced Unwinding.
To deepen his understanding and to enhance his ability to provide the support and to create the space which facilitates the opportunities to shift one’s state, he also attends study groups and receives Myofascial Release treatment himself (from other John F. Barnes trained practitioners and through self care).
Jeff is a loving husband, father of 2 young men, 1 dog, 1 bird, and a supportive son and brother. Each day, his connection with the flow he seeks during treatment is enjoyed with his personal practices, self care, and enjoyment of surfing and Aikido.
