Getting older is no fun at all. Having had a pain in my shoulder and upper back for a few days that made my entire body hurt, I went to Mind, Body Breath, Massage Therapy in Amityville to get it taken care of. Vanessa explained the benefits of Myofascial Release Therapy and how it would treat the “cause” of the pain and not just the pain itself. She quickly got to work, encouraging me to focus on my breathing while she continued her treatment. I left the office feeling better, with a great deal more flexibility than I had just an hour before. She instructed me in several exercises to do at home (even gave me some props to help with them), and within 2 days I didn’t even remember the extreme pain I was in prior to my MFR treatment. Professional, personal and effective treatment catered exactly to my specific needs. I highly recommend Vanessa and Mind, Body Breath Massage Therapy of Amityville to anyone seeking to relieve pain or stiffness throughout their body
Myofascial Release was new to me, but after my first treatment I was hooked. I have been helped in many areas: leg, back and shoulder. The massages help me keep limber and pain free. The exercises and stretches I can do on my own keep the effects of the massage in force until my next massage. My posture is better, and I feel more stable as I go about my daily activities
My name is Dan Hayes and I have been a client of Mind Body Breath for the last 6 years. I am a music educator/pianist and came for treatment due to chronic tendonitis caused by years of incorrect posture and overplaying. Prior to visiting Vanessa and her practice I went through the typically rounds of treatment: Orthopedist, physical therapy, cortisone shot, orthopedist, physical therapy, cortisone shot. No matter what I did I could not break the cycle of pain, both emotionally and physically. My career that I had worked for my entire life was falling apart and doctors began to insinuate that I was imagining my condition. I knew I needed a change and came to Mind, Body, Breath and Myofascial release. After the first visit I was immediately put at ease. Vanessa’s professionalism and genuine desire to see improvement was refreshing after months of rushed and patronizing treatment. Her belief in treating the whole self, through Myofasical Release resonated with me and I knew I was on the correct path. The road to recovery was not easy, but I was finally able to break the cycle and I can say that I have been essentially pain free for the last three years. I was able to gain an understanding of not only the underlying reasons for the pain, but also how to self-treat when the pain reemerged. Dealing with chronic pain is a lifelong challenge but with the help and continuing support of Vanessa I was able to get my life back. Words cannot express the gratitude that I have for what she has done and my hope is that others who are frustrated with traditional methods will try myofascial release and finally break free of the cycle

As a Licensed Massage Therapist, before taking my first John Barnes’ Myofascial Release seminar, I began treatment with Vanessa Uybarreta with the hopes of gaining a greater understanding of the technique, this time from a client’s perspective. At the time, I had no idea what I was in for. But Vanessa’s gentle, loving and supportive approach immediately allayed any apprehensions I had…and then subsequently catapulted me into the most profound and exciting healing journey I could ever have envisioned. Three years and many MFR sessions later, Vanessa has patiently helped me work through my chronic pain issues with unparalleled hands-on treatments and invaluable self-care instruction. She has an uncanny ability to anticipate where my body needs to go before I am aware of it, placing her hands ever-so-gently on exactly the “right spot” to achieve the deepest release. More than just relief from pain and dysfunction, which alone is a miraculous feat for which I am humbly grateful, she has empowered me to take control of my own wellness. She has given me an invaluable gift: the awareness of my body’s own healing wisdom, and the tools to connect to that source to achieve optimum health.
When I first came to see Vanessa I was tight and achy in many parts of my body especially my hip and back. I would regularly strain my left hip and low back from normal everyday activities. Vanessa always worked me through any strains, and through her work helped me understand how my muscle, tissue and alignment imbalances were causing the strains. Vanessa (and the results from her work on me) encouraged and inspired me to “do my homework” by working the massage balls at home to facilitate the unwinding and releasing process – no matter how “uncomfortable” (which I consider a relative term for a temporary feeling considering the long-term positive feeling of having a pain-free body).I can now bend, move and do everyday activities much easier and freer without resulting strains. I’m actually getting stronger (maybe because my body is not spending the energy on compensations for the imbalances). And being pain-free….has also stimulated my creativity! And I’m actually able to swing a golf club with much more freedom & ease! Thanks Vanessa. If I were asked to describe how Vanessa works, I’d say she is firmly gentle and gently firm, is not afraid to go deeper into tissue if needed, has an instinct and sense of “where to go” in the body, is very caring and dedicated in her work….and most importantly, she generates a personal trust so one feels free to “let go” into the Myofascial Release process. When asked about Vanessa’s work, I like to make the understatement, “Vanessa’s good
I’ve been coming to see Vanessa for Myofascial Release for over a year now. Originally I started coming for shoulder pain which is now well improved. My range of motion has increased and I’m able to work long periods of time without being in pain. Vanessa has the ability to connect deeply with her patients on many levels. I found after incorporating MFR into my wellness program that my stress and anxiety levels were way down and I felt more emotionally balanced. Also the self treatment she teaches helped me to pay attention to how my body feels on a daily basis. Vanessa is an excellent MFR therapist and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for healing.
