Ruth was the only health care provider to be able to stop the excruciating pain in my arm, radiating from a frozen shoulder. A physiatrist, physical therapist, and a chiropractor all told me the same thing, " Motrin, ice, and rest. It will dissolve in 1-2 years". A licensed massage therapist couldn't help me either. I was still in excruciating pain. I decided to try Myofascial release after learning about it on the internet. Thank God I found Ruth. After 3-5 sessions my pain was 100% better and I now have full range of motion in my shoulder. It's so nice to be able to dress and undress independently and pain free. After that experience with Ruth, I now use her for any pain, muscle spasms, knots, and muscle tightness. She relieved my TMJ pain, as well as my lower back pain I get from exercising or overstrain. My husband used her for the edema in his knee after he had arthroscopic surgery. He was able to get full range of motion after that. I highly recommend this service, and of course Ruth, who is well educated, has amazing hands, and a pleasure to be treated by. If you don't give this modality a try, then you must

SHE UTILIZES A HOLISTIC APPROACH, ASSESSING PHYSICAL, COGNITIVE, EMOTIONAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS.

HER GOAL IS TO HELP YOU RETURN TO A PRODUCTIVE, ACTIVE, PAIN FREE LIFESTYLE.

My Philosophy of Care

I utilize the teachings of John Barnes using Myofascial Release therapy to provide long standing pain relief and healing. Healing is a journey with many ups and downs, but the first step is to come in for help.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

I will meet with you to discuss your medical history, complaints, pain and mobility issues. I will ask about your daily activities and your goals for treatment. A physical assessment will be performed followed by a 90 min hands on treatment. MFR consists of providing gentle pressure holds at points of pain and tightness. These holds are sustained for 3-5 minutes, allowing the tissues to release and rehydrate.

My Inspiration

I was always interested in the medical field, and I became an Occupational therapist many years ago. Once I was introduced to Myofascial Release, I just knew it was what I needed to do. This modality treats the whole body and provides true healing.
