Authentic Healing through Myofascial Release

We offer myofascial release, relief of pain from headaches, back pain, and surgery for the ultimate in comprehensive care. What distinguishes us from other therapy centers? At the “Sanctuary” and “Therapy on the Rocks” we focus on physical therapy and myofascial release which are considered to be one of the most effective treatments for pain relief in healthcare.

Our Intensive Myofascial Release Treatment Program

These two exceptional facilities assist patients on their journey to optimum health. Our Centers are distinct in that we treat patients one-on-one in private treatment rooms. Every patient is unique; thus our staff strives to understand each patient’s complexities and individuality taking into account health history and personal background. Hands-on Myofascial Release Treatment is customized to each patient’s needs. Patients will feel pampered and well cared for as our staff gently applies sustained Myofascial Release pressure to areas of tightness while searching for and responding to individual body responses. Our therapists treat the body as a whole and encourage patients to tune into the signals of their body to facilitate healing on the deepest level possible.

INTENSIVES Myofascial Release Treatment for Patients

We provide unique and highly effective Intensive Treatment Programs for patients who are referred from all over the world when traditional therapy, medication, or surgery have failed to produce the desired results. The Intensive treatment programs are 15 hours per week, for 2-3 weeks, to allow for lasting change and to help patients to return to a pain-free, active lifestyle again! Local patients are seen a couple times per week.

Comprehensive Evaluation

Evaluation Includes

  • Whole body evaluation

  • Range of motion testing

  • Hands-on body assessment of Myofascial connective tissue restriction

Intensive Myofascial Release Therapy

Therapy Includes

  • A team of diverse and multi-talented therapists will discuss and review daily- patient’s history, condition and progress. All therapists on staff have been personally trained by John F. Barnes, PT. Each therapist possesses their own distinctive healing gifts and our team approach combines talents and skills to meet patient’s exclusive needs.

  • One-on-one, personalized sessions receiving hands-on Myofascial Release techniques.

  • Multiple sessions per day.

  • Heat and/or ice may be recommended after a session.

  • Inner Journey Workshop – a small personal group setting designed to enhance your healing potential via discussion and guided imagery.

  • Myofascial Unwinding Workshop – a chance to experience and take part in the movement component (unwinding) of Myofascial Release in a small intimate session with multiple therapists. The unwinding process alters habitual muscular responses, accelerating the body’s inherent self-correcting mechanism.

  • Therapeutic Touch – a one hour session using an energetic approach to expand awareness through exploring levels of stillness, listening, focus, energetic perception and intuitive knowing all designed to deepen the healing experience. The practice is based on the assumptions that human beings are complex fields of energy and that the ability to enhance healing in another is a natural process. Therapeutic Touch is useful in reducing pain and aiding relaxation.

Self-Treatment Instruction Includes
  • A personalized Myofascial self treatment plan will be taught and demonstrated so that patients can continue on with their treatment success when returning home. Simple tools such as a small ball, foam roller/cylinder and wooden roller can give the patient the ability to reproduce the techniques that were helpful to healing and gives the patient a sense of empowerment over discomfort.

  • Re-evaluation at the conclusion of the Comprehensive Intensive Treatment Program.
