Invest in yourself. You are worth it!
Myofascial Release is a gentle, yet powerful form of massage therapy. This technique speaks to the mind-body connection to promote deep healing- physically, mentally, emotionally & spiritually. MFR works directly with your fascial web. This web supports and surrounds everything in the body. When your fascia is restricted due to physical or emotional trauma or stress- it acts as if there is 2,000lb of pressure per square in pressing on pain sensitive areas in your body. When your fascia is healthy- there is flow, a feeling of lightness and space within your body.
Myofascial Release Technique never forces your body to release tension. MFR works with the body to release deep rooted tension or knots (both of the physical and mental kinds) to allow for true authentic healing of your mind, body & soul. MFR therapy sessions open up space in your body for tightness and pain to melt away. It can increase your range of motion and flexibility. Release your hold of cycles or patterns in your life that no longer serve you. And if you are willing, it can open you up to a whole deeper level of healing your body, mind & spirit.
I believe authentic, genuine kindness has the power to shift negativity. I also believe, when you are not kind to yourself first, the authenticity, or the love, behind your act of kindness is significantly watered down. I see it. I feel it all around. I would love to see a true #kindnessmovement! That movement must begin with loving yourself. All of yourself...

This customized hands-on session, focuses on softening areas of tightness or discomfort in the body. Together we establish where you are at in your healing journey, and what your goals are for the session. Using Myofascial Release Techniques (MFR), the John F. Barnes approach, and other massage modalities, the therapist works with you to soften areas of restricted movement and/or pain. MFR helps to release restricted fascia, creating space in the tissue, activating the ground substance- the fluid part of the fascial system; so, that, the body can realign on a cellular level, hydrate the starving cells and tissue and relieve the crushing tensile pressure. (Fascia- serves as a protective, binding layer that individually wraps organs, muscles, blood vessels, arteries and nerves, holding everything in place. Fascia exists as one continuous interconnected tissue from the top of our head to the bottom of our feet 1. "The primary communication system in the body is fascia. It's like fiber optics." -John F. Barnes. As with any communication system, how well the transmission lines work is a key component to the system's health 2.)
Please note* Results are unique to each person. The therapist will not "fix you". You are not broken. She will support you, listen to you, assist you within her scope of practice as a massage therapist through therapeutic touch techniques and resources, and walk with you through your personal healing process. Authentic healing comes from within.
