Hi, I'm Jackie Castro-Cooper, MPT and Professional Speaker. I hold a Masters in Physical Therapy and specialize in John F. Barnes' Myofascial Release. My passion is helping patients discover their own path to healing through integrative and holistic physical therapy.

Jackie Castro-Cooper, MPT

I specialize in the JFB approach of Myofascial Release but continue to use my traditional and complementary therapies to suit the needs of my patients. Multiple injuries from a professional career in dance, childbearing, and dealing with pain throughout my body, are what brought me to a multidimensional use of my studies:

  • Physical Therapy
  • JFBMFR
  • Intra-oral TMJ,
  • The gut and brain connection
  • Professional Yoga Therapy (PYT)
  • Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT tapping)
  • The creation of Myofascialyoga and ChakraMFR.

I am honored to be a women’s healthcare specialist (and men’s) which enables me to perform pelvic internal work and breast treatment. My goal is to provide a trusting, healing environment in order to inspire my patients to treat themselves and continue on their healing journey in a wellness atmosphere.

As a professional speaker, my mission is to bring awareness to alternative choices regarding your health care. 

I have created the Women’s Health Forum, a free resource to fill the needs of our community.

Born in Bogata, Colombia, I immigrated to New York City with my family when I was 5 months old. I was raised in New York, where I pursued a professional career in Dance.

I am blessed to be married 30 years to Scott Cooper, who has helped me raise 3 spirit filled children. Our family has lived on the beautiful Mississippi Gulf Coast for over twenty years.

My practice, Gulf Coast Myofascial Release, has been located in the quaint, seaside town of Ocean Springs, Mississippi for 15 years.

In 2006, I discovered the mind/body technique developed by John F. Barnes. This healing approach is known as Myofascial Release.

Through the JFB Myofascial Release therapy, I have helped many clients, of all ages, achieve pain relief and improved range of motion.

It is with great joy that I bring the rare technique, Myofascial Release, to the Mississippi Gulf Coast, and serve the community with holistic physical therapy.
