Nyle MacFarlane received her Masters in Occupational Therapy and Occupational Science from Towson University in 2008 and is an Expert John F. Barnes Myofascial Release (JFB MFR) Practitioner. She founded Blue Nyle Therapy Services in 2008 and took her first John F. Barnes Myofascial Release course in 2008. She has worked in a variety of adult rehab and pediatric settings and, in 2010, she partnered with a fitness facility in Bethesda, MD to establish a pediatric Occupational Therapy clinic.
Nyle is uniquely trained as one of very few manual pediatric occupational therapists in the DC metro area. Her integrative approach combines several methods of fascial therapies, positional release and muscle energy techniques, therapeutic taping, neuromuscular rehab, and sensory integration therapies. Her work with newborns and infants is designed to address the fascial restrictions in a baby’s craniosacral fascial system that are often the result of pelvic fascial pressure in utero, birthing difficulties, or midline birth issues such as tongue-tie.
In addition to her work as an occupational therapist, she is the mother of three remarkable girls; MacKenna, Siobhan, and Ainsleigh. As a single mother of three young ones, she strongly advocates for self-care and life balance. Outside of her work and home life, she spends time developing her meditation, yoga, and spiritual practice. Nyle lives in daily gratitude for the opportunity to practice at Tavo Total Health alongside such incredibly skilled therapists and in service to such grateful clients.
Nyle has been practicing the John F. Barnes’ Myofascial Release Approach since 2008. She sees clients at TAVO Total Health Monday through Thursday.
