Whole Body Healing
Therapeutic Massage & John F. Barnes' Myofascial Release Approach

Services and Rates

Investing in massage and bodywork is an investment in your health.  


MYOFASCIAL RELEASE therapy can be relaxing and can feel very intense.  This is a gentle form of bodywork developed by John F. Barnes, a physical therapist who has been teaching this therapy for almost 50 years, and is done without any lotion or oil.  It addresses the connective tissue, or fascia of the entire body.  Connective tissue runs throughout your entire body like a three dimensional web, surrounds nerves and blood vessels and holds organs in place.  When there are restrictions due to inflammation, trauma, poor posture or overuse, a 'binding down' is created that can cause pain or pull the body out of alignment.  When the tissues have been restricted for a long time, they become stuck and dehydrated and can actually begin to solidify.  A gentle pressure is applied by the therapist into the area of restriction and after 90-120 seconds the collagen part of the connective tissue will begin releasing.  Sustaining this pressure for 5 minutes or more for each restriction allows the solidified tissues to soften and rehydrate.  Waiting for this change to occur is key to producing a longer lasting result.  Because of the long holds, there won't always be time in one session to address each area of concern.  But, because everything is connected, addressing one area can affect another seemingly unrelated area.  Please read more about it at Myofascialrelease.com

THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE A therapeutic massage is a blend of different restorative techniques based on client limitations and issues.  This may include Swedish and Deep tissue techniques, as well as stretching, rocking, Reiki, lymphatic drainage, or cranial sacral therapy techniques.  Each session is customized to address the needs of the client that day.   If you have any questions about these services, please do not hesitate to ask.
