I have been a physical therapist over 30 years. I have worked mostly in orthopedic outpatient clinics, but also in a hospital.

How my clients describe their first visit?
The first visit starts with about half an hour of reviewing past history, an examination of posture and movements, and education about how the Barnes trained therapist sees the body and how we will work on rebalancing, opening, healing, and restoring function.

What I say to someone who has never tried myofascial release and/or pelvic physical therapy?
There is therapy for that! Meaning pelvic issues such as incontinence, pelvic pain of all types, scar restrictions, constipation, inability to have intercourse. And besides instruction of exercises and use of tools, Barnes MFR works the best for all these. About Barnes MFR, I would say this: after having been an employee for 25 years, I was able to very successfully leave employment and start a solo practice doing Barnes MFR. This work is that good.
