  Sarah is an Intermediate Level JFB-MFR Therapist, with 14 years of experience as a Licensed Massage Therapist.  She initially decided to pursue massage training to learn better ways to manage her own chronic pain.  After years of working long hours at her desk job at the State House, a karate injury, and a bad fall on her tailbone, Sarah was in quite a bit of discomfort.

  It was already quite a few years into her massage career when Sarah first experienced JFB-MFR for herself. Based on the relief she got from just a few sessions, it was clear to her that MFR was how she would help herself and her clients, not only to manage their symptoms, but to actually heal. She began taking seminars and has now completed hundreds of hours of MFR training, almost all of it directly with John F. Barnes, PT.

  For nearly a decade, Sarah also worked in a primary care practice as a Medical Assistant, where she met countless individuals seeking help with pain. Despite going through invasive testing, aggressive physical therapy, and various medications, often they only got temporary or partial relief. She saw patients’ frustration grow when their pain lingered, but knew from her training and experience why these methods fall short.

  Sarah believes that the client’s participation — both during treatment and at home — is the key to unlocking their own healing. She emphasizes the importance of making  MFR self-treatment  part of a daily routine, encouraging it as a life-long practice to support, maintain, and enhance physical and mental well being.

  Sarah has an eight-year-old son, Ethan, who was diagnosed with autism five years ago.  Sarah regularly uses MFR with him (which he calls “squishes”) and considers it an essential component of his care and incredibly supportive of his development.

  Marya is an Expert Level JFB-MFR Therapist, with over 13 years of experience as a Licensed Massage Therapist. She came to this work because of her own pain, having lived with fibromyalgia since early childhood. Western Medicine’s methods for treating pain and depression could barely even mask her symptoms, let alone resolve them. After many years of struggling, she began to learn alternative approaches to help herself instead. This sparked her desire to help others.

  Rather than trying to simply relieve the pain for herself and her clients, Marya looked for ways to support the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Exploring this concept led her, first as a client, to John Barnes’ MFR. With regular MFR treatment and self-treatment at home, Marya began to see an improvement in her health and a profound shift in her thinking. Upon completing just one seminar, JFB-MFR became the only method of bodywork she’d practice.

  Marya now lives without the life-limiting pain, hypersensitivity, and depression associated with fibromyalgia — she uses MFR on everything. Having completed all of John’s courses, she repeats them regularly in order to deepen both her work with clients, as well as her own healing. To further her training, Marya is also taking MFR seminars through Z-Way Trainings with Lori Zeltwanger, PT.

  In addition to MFR, Marya offers Sound Therapy sessions with gongs and singing bowls. She’s studied extensively under Mitch Nur, Ph.D., of 9 Ways Academia, and has found her work with sound and frequency to be a powerful complement to Myofascial Release.

  Marya is also deepening her work with energy and healing as a student of the HeartMind Healer School, under the mentorship and guidance of Annie B. Bond.
