Myofascial Release is a technique that brings the body back to proper alignment. It is very effective for treating pain and restoring movement in areas of the body that are restricted due to injury, scar tissue from surgery, emotional stress or poor posture. “Fascia” is a network of dense connective tissue that covers every muscle, bone, nerve, blood vessel as well as our internal organs. It is one seamless web that intertwines the entire body. If you think of the fascia like the yarn of a sweater, you can see that a “pull” or tightness in one area can spread to other places in the body. These restrictions can put pressure on sensitive structures as the fascia starts to bind to underlying tissues, causing pain and limited movement. Through gentle and sustained stretching and massage the fascia is lengthened and the body is brought back to proper alignment.

What Clients Are Saying
I started seeing Carrie in August 2011 at the recommendation of my physical therapist due to a severe shoulder/neck sprain sustained earlier that summer. I subsequently developed tendonitis in one foot due to over-exertion on a hiking trip while on vacation. Working with Carrie has been vital to my recovery from both injuries. Carrie worked collaboratively with my physical therapist regarding my rehabilitation and treatment options. She specializes in medical massage so she had a keen understanding of my injuries as well as what techniques could be beneficial in facilitating my overall healing. Most importantly, as a social worker who values the importance of relationships, I value Carrie’s professionalism and ability to join with her clients. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a massage therapist to assist with injury rehabilitation or to overall self-care. I referred two colleagues to her practice for the above reasons and continue to see her regularly myself as part of a maintenance plan focusing on general well-being.- Sarah
