About Scott

Scott van NierkerkScott grew up in Zimbabwe, Africa. He graduated from the Medical School at the University of Cape Town, South Africa in 1995 with a degree in Physical Therapy. At the time, UCT was acclaimed as one of the world's strongest manual therapy training programs.

Since coming to the U.S. in 1996, he has studied extensively with John F. Barnes, P.T., founder of the Myofascial Release approach, and since 1999 has instructed alongside Barnes at the Myofascial Release seminars nationwide. He now teaches these seminars around the US, all the while balancing this with his marriage and family life that includes a happy little growing son and a newborn! His personal interests include martial arts, meditation, yoga and love of the outdoors.

A message from Scott:

I love what I do - MFR, and I love my practice. It is profitable, thriving, continually growing and blossoming. I am able to spend time away whilst the patients continue to be treated. Patients love their experiences. I have 12 employees whom feel they are part of a family. There is a balance of spirit, joy, reward, structure, discipline, communication, fulfillment in abundance, amongst other things. I have been blessed with a natural healing touch that makes me an effective right brained therapist, but, more importantly to MFR Success this is balanced by a solid “Business Hat”. My left brained Business Mind has a lot to share with those who want to learn how to become better at running their practice.
