SSPT Welcomes Kimberly Bosen!!!


Kimberly (Kimee) Bosen is the middle of identical triplets and was born up in the beautiful white mountains of Eagar, Arizona. Kimee was raised by wonderful parents who taught her virtuous principles, morals, integrity, and how to work hard from a very young age. These attributes have helped Kimee throughout her life. She worked hard in school, in all her activities, and sports. These efforts paid off and helped her receive academic and athletic scholarships to pay her way through a degree in Exercise Physiology and Leisure Science at Adams State University in Alamosa, Colorado. She was 12 x All-American and 3 x National Champion collegiately in Track and Cross-Country.

Kimee loves to learn, especially in the pursuit of knowledge to help her to help others. From a very young age, she has had a love and interest in using her hands to bless the lives of others. She graduated from The Sedona School of Massage and has been a Licensed Massage Therapist for over nine years as well as an Infant Massage Instructor. She has been able to take many courses with John F. Barnes to learn myofascial release (MFR) and was hooked from the first class she took. She knew this would be a part of her journey to help others. She has seen miracles in her own life as well as others using John’s approach to MFR.  She has always had a love for areas of women’s health, particularly perinatal, prenatal, and postpartum periods. She is a Certified Midwifery Assistant, has trained as a doula, and has taken and is taking courses to continue to learn and grow in this area.

It was upon learning about John’s women’s health approach that Kimee pursued an education in physical therapy, so she could treat and help women. Kimee has just completed her Physical Therapy Assistant Program at Pima Medical Institute. She has been blessed to know Mya for several years and is grateful to begin a journey of MFR with such an amazing and talented therapist. She will practice MFR under her massage license until she is licensed upon passing the National Boards Exam (NPTAE) in July.

Did you hear? We’ve moved!

To the…..

Right down the street at:

7560 Willow Drive

Tempe, Arizona 85283


There are times in life when you think you have had enough transition to last you a good while, and then you feel laughter from above and more transition in the air.  I am very grateful for the space that I created and worked from at 51 W. Elliot road for many, many years, but when multiple signs continued to show me the way, I knew that it was time to move my place of business to new healing grounds.  Which turned out to be just down the road.

Our new blank slate was ready to be filled….

In true Annette fashion the move turned into a family affair.  Her amazing husband Matt saved the day and her son Zach arrived just in time to lend a hand.  We made sure to bubble wrap him with care so that he could return to his football career unscathed.

The Rueda children made sure all measurement tools were used one last time before moving to their new home.  Which was especially important since Diego and I were going head to head in a who is taller family competition.

I suspect the measurement official was bribed.  My first born cannot be taller than me.  My demands for a re-measure did not change the official results.

So we went to work testing our strength, and the capacity of our current ride.

Luckily I have some very strong helpers.

And because moving all of my business possessions wasn’t fun enough, Annette’s sweet husband Matt also saved the day by assembling furniture!  With his little helpers, of course.

We called out for help to fill the walls that surround our sacred healing space with goals and intentions.  And the words flooded in.  These special seeds were planted with care before the wall was completed.

So without further adieu we present…

Room 1….

and Room 2…

We are ready for YOU. 

Spotlighting YOUR MFR Success

I believe when we focus on the good it allows the good to get bigger in ourselves and in others.  John Barnes often encourages his patients to kick the pebble that starts the avalanche.  It may be my Alaska roots but I visualize it like a tiny snowflake joining with others, becoming a snowball, picking up size and speed, rolling down a hill and creating an avalanche.  A big huge avalanche of good.  Of healing.  I believe that in sharing your personal successes, you can allow that good to grow within your body and you can inspire success in others.

I am creating this space for you.  And for all that you are willing to inspire by sharing your success.

You may view your success as too small of a snowflake to mention.  Or too big of an avalanche to be believed.  But I encourage you to be brave and share those successes.  You simply don’t know what you will inspire in others or in yourself.

So whether your success is being able to bend over and tie your shoes for the first time in months.  Or being able to go on that European trip you’ve been planning your whole life for, pain free.  We want to hear from you!!

Please send us an email of your successes so we can shine a spotlight on you!

November Classes

November classes are just around the corner.  They will be held on Monday evenings at 6pm starting on November 7th.  This is a great opportunity for you to learn how to care for your body during these hectic holiday times and throughout the whole year.

For those of you unable to attend, let this post serve as a reminder to set aside some time for self treatment.

If you have already participated in one of my classes, or John’s Myofascial Healing Seminar, or if you are a therapist and have taken John’s professional seminars I hope that you will take some time tomorrow to use what you know about JFB Myofascial Release and treat yourself.

You are invited to connect in with us tomorrow where ever you are on this earth or in your healing journey! Give yourself some MFR TLC. Self treat….stretch, unwind, rebound…… Let’s do this!mfrclassseries7222016-16

Standing Tall 

Did you know that patients who receive JFB Myofascial Release often leave feeling taller because they actually are taller?  When the crushing tensile pressures of myofascial restrictions are removed, when posture is normalized, when pain or tightness is no longer weighing you down, in addition to many other great benefits, you may find yourself standing taller!   I do realize that I should not be the spokeswoman on tallness, but I’m telling you it is true.  

Did you also know that most JFB Myofascial Release Therapists support each other?  We are a community of therapists that recognize that what we offer is greatly needed.  We typically are not competitive like most other businesses are.  My dear friends Peter and Ania Podbielski, owners of Complete Physical Therapy, gifted me this awesome measurement tool.   Thank you Peter and Ania! 🙂

Wherever you live, whomever you are, I hope that you will consider going to a JFB trained therapist, and allow your body to let go of whatever is holding you down, so that you too can stand tall at your full height! 

We are bouncing for joy…..

It is the little things in life that make such a big impact.  We are super excited that our shipment of little, but powerful, balls have arrived!!
