Self Treatment Classes

Class 2 was a success this Wednesday morning and now we are getting ready for our series of all four MFR classes tomorrow. (Here is a sneak peak at the last go round.)

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!!

Group Treatment Sessions

Self Solace Physical Therapy, Inc. is proud to present….


Group Treatment Sessions

This treatment session allows for yourself and 3 other participants to experience John Barnes Myofascial Release in a most unique way.  You will be both receiving and giving treatment during this one hour session.  You will be supported and guided by 8 additional hands (the other 3 participants and the therapist) when it is your turn to receive.  You will learn how to hold space for another as you support them in their healing journey.

Each group treatment session will have a different focus: unwinding, rebounding, and structural Myofascial Release.  These are three very distinct and highly effective ways to address the fascial system.

Prerequisite: Mya’s Myofascial Release Self Treatment Classes or JFB Myofascial Healing Seminar or MFR1

Price: $60 per person

Space is limited…call (480)345-7778 or email to reserve your place today!

The Essence of Becoming—A Journey

I would like to share with you some very beautiful and powerful words gifted to me by Kimberly Bosen…..


The Essence of Becoming—A Journey

The Essence of Becoming is solely that—A Journey!
This journey may be likened to the growth of a tree.
Seeds of divinity are sown by the great Gardner and He knows precisely the kind of tree each seed is to become.
He provides the soil, sun, water, as well as the pruning and all the nourishment needed.
A seed soon begins to sprout and grasp the earth beneath and stretch towards the blue sky above.
As the tree grows stronger, its roots thrust under the earth.
Soon branches begin to spring up and stretch ever upward:

Branches of love Branches of anger
Branches of faith Branches of fear, doubt, worry
Branches of calmness Branches of anxiety
Branches of hope Branches of distrust
Branches of strength Branches of weakness
Branches of goodness Branches of sin
Branches of joy, happiness, cheer Branches of grief
Branches of kindness Branches of hurt
Branches of determination and perseverance Branches of pain
Branches of gifts and talents Branches of perfectionism
Branches of giving and service Branches of reaction

As seen in this journey of becoming, there are many kinds of branches blooming and bringing forth fruits in their seasons.
At times it seems overwhelming and the bad branches are overtaking the good.
The tree just wants the Gardner to cut off ALL the bad and burn them, so only the good remain.
Ahh! Yes….perfectionism!
The wise Gardner in His omniscience knows perfectionism = destructionism.
He knows if He were to pluck out ALL the bad ALL AT ONCE, the roots would not be strong enough, and the tree would perish.
He has a better plan:
Through faith and love He grafts in new branches:

Branches of awareness Branches of empowerment with choice
Branches of acceptance Branches of trust
Branches of courage Branches of creation
Branches of letting go Branches of self-love
Branches of listening Branches of memories
Branches of more guidance Branches of responding
Branches of more knowledge Branches of understanding
Branches of gratitude Branches of peace

As the tree grows stronger the grafts take hold and slowly the bad branches are plucked, one at a time; in His time.

The struggles are what give the roots and tree strength.
The opposition in the branches is needed to grow, learn, and give opportunity for the new branches to be grafted in to become the beautiful tree.
Branching out in gratitude for the Essence of Becoming—A Journey!

New Year

We ended 2015 with tearing down walls and creating new space.

We began 2016 by filling that space with light, love, well intentioned and powerful healing energy.

In fact, our very first patient for this year was a very special newborn.

We have big dreams and endless possibilities for this year.

We hope that this blog proves to be a good way to connect with each of you, outside of the treatment room.  We will use this medium to update you on changes, inform you of upcoming events, share information, and inspire.

2016 is going to be fabulous.  Join us…..
