Time to Relax

Trust experienced hands to help your whole body heal with JF Barnes Myofascial Release 612-638-7981


    IMPORTANT NOTICE:  changes due to  COVID-19:  Now Open for In Person Appointments.  Mask or Face Covering Required.  Extended time between sessions to allow for cleaning means fewer appointments available each day.   The health and safety of my clients and myself is very important. For this reason, walk-in/same day appointments will not be accepted and clients who are not currently receiving a service will be asked to step out in order to control the number of people within the studio.  All appointments now require a credit card to hold your spot.  The card will NOT be charged until the time of the appointment.

If you are experiencing a fever, cough, sore throat,  or difficulty breathing please reschedule your appointment for when you are no longer symptomatic. If you have been to a COVID-19-impacted area or have been in close contact with a person infected with COVID-19, I ask that you please reschedule your appointment for 14 days past the date of contact.

Please note, per  guidelines by CDC, ABMP and FSMTB I am requiring that clients wear face coverings/masks when they arrive for their appointments.  I do have some available if needed.  I am wearing a mask for sessions and will wear gloves if desired.

Amid the ongoing uncertainty of COVID-19, I have modified the cancellation policy to offer greater flexibility to all clients. I hope this will alleviate any stress and hesitation you have about an upcoming appointment. If you need to reschedule for whatever reason, and especially if you are not feeling well, I understand and request for you to please contact us as soon as possible to reschedule. To further support you, there will be no penalties for cancellations of in-person appointments unless there is no communication from you at all.

High Risk Clients  are encouraged to schedule the additional virtual sessions  available found under the "classes" tab when booking online.  They are approximately half hour long and $30.   I add classes frequently.  Class payment is non-refundable if you do not show up and do not contact me to reschedule. Credit card required to hold your registration, but card will not be charged until session is completed.

Thank you for helping me help keep everyone healthy!

What to expect:

  1. Initial sessions include reviewing your health intake form 
  2. we will discuss your goals and needs 
  3. a structural/posture analysis to determine issues. 
  4. The John F. Barnes method of myofascial release is used  to release restricted or stuck areas in your fascia/connective tissue with gentle compression and/or traction applied over several minutes. Follow the link for more information on what "myofascial release" is.
  5. Sessions are designed to facilitate your healing without injury.
  6. A note about "Deep Tissue":  although MFR is a very gentle bodywork method, it is considered a deep tissue technique because it works with the many layers of the body.

"Chris has been my therapist for many years.  I am grateful for all of the sessions that have relieved many pains.  I have had a knee replaced.  When she could again do therapy she could help the spots relax and heal.  She can erase the knots in my back and neck. Thank you Chris."   Harriet E.
