Welcome to Sarasota
A Gateway to Health
A licensed massage therapist, certified in John F. Barnes approach to myofascial release therapy, I believe we need to incorporate many different modalities into our prescribed health care and proactive self care.
In our daily lives at work or play we can adopt physical dysfunction that manifests as fascial restrictions on sensitive structures within our bodies. These restrictions cause pain, dysfunction, compensation and ultimately can cause 'dis-ease'.
Who can benefit?
A highly specialized approach to therapeutic Myofascial Release. Each session consists of evaluation followed by applied techniques and treatment according to fascial restrictions.

Fascia is all connective tissue. It connects every cell of your body to all the surrounding cells. A layer of fascia wraps around every structure in your body (every bone, every muscle, every organ, every blood vessel and nerve.) Fascia is what anchors itself to the neighboring structures Fascia forms a continuous three-dimensional web throughout the entire body, that gives the body its structural integrity, allows for movement and in a healthy state, is fluid.
In healthy tissue, the fascia is constantly in motion, rearranging itself as needed to allow body structures to slip and slide against each other. When fascial restrictions form, that motion gets arrested, and those structures that should slide against each other freely instead get stuck together. If you’ve ever felt a tight muscle or limited motion, that’s a a fascial restriction, an adhesion between separate layers of fascia that have temporarily become fused. This is unhealthy and causes further
dis-ease and restrictions within the fascial web that surrounds all your physical matter.
Our goal is to help you return to a pain free, active lifestyle!
