Myofascial Release

The John F. Barnes' Myofascial Release Approach® is considered to be the ultimate therapy that is safe, gentle and consistently effective in producing results that last. Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and to restore motion. This essential "time element" has to do with the viscous flow and the piezolectric phenomenon: a low load (gentle pressure) applied slowly will allow a viscoelastic medium like fascia to elongate. Each treatment session is performed directly on skin without oils, creams or machinery. This enables accurate detection of fascial restrictions and application of the appropriate amount of sustained pressure to facilitate release of the fascia. Dana has taken Myofascial Release I, Myofascial Release II, Unwinding, Advanced Unwinding, Fascial-Pelvis, Cervical-Thoracic, Pediatric, and Equine I.  She is also scheduled to take Women's Health, Rebounding, and Mobilization in 2018.  (60 and 90 minute sessions) 

Manual Lymphatic Drainage

This therapeutic form of soft-tissue mobilization dramatically enhances lymph formation and promotes drainage within the superficial and deep systems of the lymph vascular network.  This is a great technique for those with lymphoedema or those that are at risk of getting lymphoedema, pre and post surgery, seasonal changes, cold and flu season, and relaxation. Dana is a Certified Manual Lymph Drainage Therapist from the Klose Institute utilizing the Vodder Technique.  (60 and 90 minute sessions)

Focuses on areas of tight muscle fibers that can form in your muscles after injuries or overuse. Also knows as Deep Tissue and Trigger Point Therapy.   (30, 60, 90, 120 minute sessions)
