Can anyone give me some background on the various MFR instructors and your experiences with them? I have heard mixed reviews from other sources, and would like to get more feedback here.

Internet forums are like going to the zoo; if you get enough monkeys together, sooner or later someone will start throwing their poo.
Here are a couple of links:
www.anatomytrains.net for Tom Myers
www.hellerwork.com for Hellerwork
www.myofascialrelease.com for John Barnes
Of course, the best bet would be to see if you can get a session from someone trained in a style of work to see how it fits your preferences.
I have found that Barnes' method often gets a bum rap in many forums, as being too intuition based, having emotional releases, etc. Other methods of MFR seem to attract those who are uncomfortable with these issues. But, its the only method I've ever studied and it is very powerful. There is a great deal of room for a therapist to develop their own style within the framework of Barnes' teachings. Give it a try.
