Enjoy your life by eliminating pain at its source.  Like stretching taffy it takes time for the fascia to melt and stretch returning to it's natural healthy alignment.  Fascia is a three-dimensional web that protects our tissue and organs by maintaining the space and hydration necessary for the systems of the body to work coherently.  When injury occurs the fascia goes into a protective mode that puts pressure in the web thereby causing symptoms in pain sensitive tissue that are hard to diagnose.  When traditional therapy, pain medication and surgery do not produce the desired results Myofascial Release may be the missing link and help you return to a pain free active lifestyle.

Every time we feel pain physical or emotional it is stored in our fascia.  Layer upon layer it builds up and begins to twist our bodies into an unrecognizable shape.  We begin to feel lethargic and dehydrated.  This "straight jacket" of tight fascia can only be released by a trained John F. Barnes myofascial therapist.  Fascial restrictions do no show up in standard testing.  Yet any injury, scar or strain in the fascia can produce symptoms years later.  Releasing this tension will alleviate pain and produce more energy so the body naturally returns to a healthier place thereby reducing stress and feeling well enough to return to an active lifestyle.

Carolyn graduated from the NY School of Health Professions in 2009 with an A.S. degree in Massage Therapy.  In February of 2012, she began her Myofascial Release journey with her first Myofascial seminar series with John F. Barnes, PT and founder of Myofascial Release therapy. 

Her decision to become an exclusive Myofascial therapist evolved from her own efforts to heal past injuries.  Myofascial Release was better than any medical massage or any other therapy she had experienced when trying to resolve her own pain from a car accident.  She realized that for the first time her clients were seeing real results unlike traditional massage that only produced temporary results.  Carolyn is an Expert Level JFB therapist thereby completing the following courses with John Barnes:  MFR I & MFR II, Rebounding, Unwinding, Advanced Unwinding, Cervical Thoracic, Fascial Pelvis, Women's Health, Myofascial Mobilization and MFR III.  In addition, she spent a week in the Malverne, PA Clinic working with John Barnes and his talented staff as well as a week at Therapy on the Rocks in Sedon, AZ as a client so she can further relate to her client's healing journey.

Awareness is the key to reducing stress and tension.  Myofascial Release is the most effective way to teach our body how to let go of the tension that we are not even aware of.  We push ourselves to exhaustion most days and yet we never allow ourselves the most important recovery tool of deep relaxation.  During your session we follow the "Fascial Voice" releasing the lines of tension that lead us to your deepest restrictions.  Without harming or further injuring your tissue you are able to release stored tension that you have been carrying around for years. Learning how to breath and relax is vital in reducing stress and tension, but we were never taught how.  Myofascial Release is the "missing link" in healthcare and the only way to properly heal without causing further injury. 

Functional Movement

Functional Movement provides the blueprint for returning back to healthy activity.  Carolyn recently became certified in Applied Functional Science.  She has completed many certifications over the years but has narrowed it down to a system that supports her myofascial release.  After 25 years of searching for the bodies natural ability to heal she realized we must first let go of stress and tension.  The culprit is we don't even know the stress and tension exist.  We have great coping mechanisms but they run to a fault.  With a variety of everyday movements and self treatment you bring awareness to your own prescription for health.  I don't fix you, you fix you.  Take your life back and become you own advocate.  Classes are small so you are encouraged to do your own work.  It's the only way.


Self Treatment

Self treating your fascia everyday for thirty minutes will help relieve pain and stress.  Everyday we stand up in gravity and the denseness of the ground underneath us creates tension on our fascial system.  Our fascial system protects us from those forces.  This is why symptoms are produced years later as our fascia adapts over time.  The symptoms may not even be related to the cause.  A recent injury may have been related to an old one.  The old injury can be related to the new job you have or the new exercise plan.  Self-treatment will help with every situation not only giving your fascia the release it needs but at the same time you are developing awareness of all the tension in your body.  The single most beneficial thing you an do for yourself is self-treatment.  Stop the excuses and create a space you can commit to, for yourself and your loved ones.
