FAQs

About MFR & Massage

Could I have fascial restrictions?


When looking in the mirror, is your posture crooked?
Do you have pain?
Is it hard to stand or sit up straight for extended periods of time?
Do your muscles feel tight?
Do you feel overly tired?

If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, you likely have fascial restrictions. A skilled MFR practitioner can verify the presence of fascial restrictions through touch and observation of your body.




Could myofascial release work for me?


Do you have a desire to be well?
Are you willing to take an active role in your healing journey?
Are you open to another approach?
If you answered “yes” to the above, myofascial release may work for you! Everyone responds uniquely to MFR and within their own time-frame. Most feel differences in symptoms right away while others require a number of sessions to achieve their goals of well-being. If your fascial system is restricted and you are open to the process of releasing it and desire wellness for yourself, you can join the thousands who have eliminated symptoms and have been profoundly helped by MFR.




What should I wear for my treatment?


Myofascial Release is done directley on the skin. ​Loose fitting clothing such as gym shorts or bathing suit bottoms (men and women), and swimsuit top or sports bra for women or regular undergarments are acceptable; as long as we can gain access to the skin.

Please do NOT apply lotion or oil of any kind as this will interfere with gaining the necessary traction used for effective myofascial release.




What does MFR feel like?


The John F. Barnes Approach® of MFR is gentle and never forceful. Therefore, the pressure applied is always in tune with what your body needs and within your tolerance. As pressure is applied into areas of tightness, sometimes a warmth or sense of stretch or tension is felt. As the tissue releases, tightness softens, pain eases, and body alignment changes.
After a treatment session, some people may experience short-term soreness or therapeutic pain as the body accommodates this real change as well as emotional tenderness. Likely you will experience a reduction in symptoms, increased energy levels, and improved sleep patterns following a treatment session.




What are fascial restrictions?


Let's start with a look at the universe...seriously. Within a blackness of space and infinite possibility, there exist stars, moons, planets, comets, nebulae, galaxies, and all other matter-- everything supported, suspended, and generated by the invisible energy mesh within and around it all.

This mesh and its contents, are exactly like that of our fascial network, although very visible.
When there are restrictions in fascia, it acts much like a tangled web, pulling on the entire system. Trauma, inflammatory response, surgery and repetitive tasks can create fascial restrictions carrying up to 2,000 lbs of tensile strength. By releasing tension and pressure, Myofascial Release may increase blood flow and nutrients to the cells, restoring you to a pain-free, active lifestyle. Using the Myofascial Release technique, you will often be able to release restrictions completely.





About Herbalism

What type of Yoga do you teach?


I have been trained in Hatha Yoga of the slow tradition. This flow incorporates pranayama (mindful breathing) to practice presence as we flow slowly and intentionally through different asanas (postures) to open the body into greater strength and flexibility.




Where do you teach?


I offer private instruction: 1-on-1, at my studio in Grants Pass, OR as well as via Skype or Facetime for clients in other parts of the world. *Instruction offered in English and Spanish. I also teach in the town of Grants Pass, bi-weekly at Sundance Yoga Studio.

Group instruction is available privately at the studio or your desired gathering place.




How do you teach Meditation?


Meditation is part of my Hatha Yoga instruction AND can be taught separately if desired. For many of us, it can be challenging to quiet the active mind and settle into a peaceful space within ourselves. It takes practice, every time. I have found that with the help of a flame (live or battery-powered), we can have a point of focus that captivates our attention and allows us to calm. I also have guided clients through powerful visualizations through scenes and through the body. Another meditation practice I teach is called Yoga Nidra, offered monthly at Sundance.
Find out when the next scheduled Yoga Nidra Meditation is.




I have a group who wants to do yoga together, can you teach us?


It would be an honor, yes! I am available for groups of all levels, ages, and experience. I have taught in nursing homes, places or worship, parks, studios, and private homes for over 7 years. Let's connect and create a time and class that suits you and your friends!
