As a therapist for 20+ years my mission has been to deliver personalized, effective, compassionate hands-on care with lasting results. I bring you hands-on authentic healing through the “HEART”-isrty of Myofascial Release also known as MFR. MFR Heals Energizes Aligns Restores Transforms to relieve your pain and restrictions and give you back your life. I come to you as a therapist who began the journey as a patient myself and thus brings the compassion and a very deep level  of personal experience to my role now as the therapist. As your therapist, you and I truly become partners in the role of getting you healed into wholeness. Healing through Myofascial Release is truly an art form, its “HEART”istry at its finest.

Myofascial Release (MFR) is a gentle, safe, and highly effective hands-on technique used for treating connective tissue restrictions that cause pain both acute and chronic, the loss of mobility and function in your body.  Myofascial Release (MFR), the Barnes method, is a whole-body approach which uses the application of gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to release the pressure of these tight tissues to eliminate pain and restore motion. MFR restores the body’s soft tissues to a healthy fluid state. The “myofascial” or “fascial” system is a 3-D web of connective tissue that surrounds, infiltrates, and connects every tissue, organ, and cell of your body from head to toe and skin to spine. It’s function is to provide support and structure to the body as well as work as a bracing mechanism and shock absorber to protect the body from injuries. Everyone’s fascial system is as unique and individual as your finger prints and no two injuries or strain patterns are this same.  This allows me to treat you as the unique individual that you are and not according to a protocol or systematic approach. YOU are more than symptoms or a label.

Are you suffering from pain, immobility or loss of function? Are you stressed or experiencing any unexplained type of symptoms?  Have you tried other forms of therapy and either have short term results or none at all? Have all other forms actually seen a worsening in your symptoms? The Myofascial Release Technique is a broad umbrella term, meaning it covers a lot of different approaches for fascial tissue treatment under one named discipline. Myofascial Release (MFR) as taught by John F. Barnes P.T., is in a unique class of its own. It is a hands-on soft tissue technique that facilities the movement and healing of the fascial system, It provides “WHOLE HEALING, HEALING INTO ONENESS, HEALING INTO WHOLENESS”. The Barnes approach of Myofascial Release (JFB MFR) is the missing link in the health care system today and is the link you and your body mind and spirit need to achieve your highest level of healing. This form of Myofascial Release helps provide not only lasting results but it restores your ability to live life to its fullest and as joyfully as possible. You truly can feel like a kid again.  Below is just a sample list of various conditions, and symptoms that Myofascial Release can help with.
