Myofascial Release

A Myofascial Release wellness treatment session using The John F. Barnes’ Myofascial Release Approach® starts with a posture screening to determine where fascial restrictions are located. Treatment consists of a variety of direct and indirect hands-on techniques, performed directly on the skin without lotions or oils, utilizing sustained pressure or traction to address restrictions found throughout the body. 


Myofascial  Unwinding, a gentle technique which involves the therapist guiding your body into positions which allow the release of restrictions and promotes  self-healing, may also be used.


Myofascial Release is a wonderful preventative tool used to address restrictions before symptoms occur. Restrictions in fascia can lead to small or large range of motion losses. Over time, even small losses that may go unnoticed result in your body's development of compensatory postures and movement patterns. These unnatural forces can add stress to muscles, tendons, and joints and eventually lead to injury. Pressure from fascial restrictions on blood vessels and nerves may also lead to circulatory or neurological symptoms. 

Visceral Manipulation

Visceral Manipulation is a gentle form of manual therapy (also called organ specific fascial mobilization) which assists the body in correcting itself. Viscera refers to the internal organs such as the liver, stomach, gall bladder, kidneys, and intestines. Your organs are connected to each other and other structures of the body by fascia. Restrictions in the fascia caused by inflammation, scar tissue from previous surgeries, trauma and/or poor posture can cause dysfunction in the organ and pain and dysfunction in other parts of your body. 


During a Visceral Manipulation assessment, the whole body is scanned to find the site of dysfunction which may be causing symptoms elsewhere. 


Visceral Manipulation is a great option for anyone who has had surgery (recent or long ago) or inflammation in the abdominal area.. 

CranioSacral Therapy

CranioSacral Therapy enhances the functioning of the CranioSacral system. This system is made up of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid which surround the brain and spinal cord. Treatment complements the body's own natural ability to heal itself by releasing restrictions in the fascia and improving the circulation of cerebrospinal fluid.  


 A CranioSacral Therapy session is very gentle and relaxing and is performed with the patient lying on his/her back while fully clothed. 

Golf Swing Mobility Program

This program combines the benefits of physical therapy techniques with Susan O'Carroll PT and massage therapy techniques with Rachel Mann, LMBT at the Wellness Group to improve your golf swing and help prevent injury by focusing on increasing hip and trunk flexibility,  strengthening targeted hip and core muscles to increase your power, and improving your balance.
