HOW CAN WE HELP YOU?

Cindy Bowman, owner and Physical Therapist, customizes treatment to target your individual pain, discomfort,and mobility issues. She specializes in and is an expert practitioner of MYOFASCIAL RELEASE THERAPY (MFR).

WHAT IS MYOFACIAL RELEASE (MFR)?

MYOFASCIAL RELEASE THERAPY (MFR) is a non-invasive, whole body, hands-on method for evaluating and treating conditions. MFR’s basic principle is to eliminate restrictions within the body’s fascial system. Fascia is a tough connective tissue that spreads throughout the body in a three-dimensional web from head to foot. The fascial system surrounds and interconnects with every muscle, bone, blood vessel and organ – all the way to the cellular level. Trauma, poor posture or inflammation can create a binding down of fascia - causing excess pressure on nerves, muscles, blood vessels, bones and organs. Because fascial restrictions do not show up on standard medical tests like X-ray, MRI or CAT scans, it is likely that many people suffering from pain and lack of motion might have underlying, undiagnosed fascial problems.

With MFR, Cindy applies gentle, sustained pressure into fascial restrictions to elongate the tissue and improve the natural healing responses within your body. The results? Less pain and more flexibility. MFR is safe and known for producing positive and lasting results.

Stop suffering! Call or Email Us today to learn how Myofascial Release can make a positive difference in your level of wellness.

Important Tip! Accept no imitations. Some pain management and physical therapy practices will confuse MFR with deep tissue massage or rolfing – two techniques that are in stark contrast with the mild and non-invasive MFR approach that renowned Physical Therapist John F. Barnes developed and perfected through years of treating patients.

TESTIMONIALS

Hands on HealthCare delivers POSITIVE RESULTS! Read what our patients are saying about us…

"In my quest to educate myself about this syndrome (fibromyalgia) and any possible treatments I have tried many things. What I have found that benefits me most is Myofascial Release." ̶ Sherry K.

"Seven years ago I had my right knee replaced. Nothing we did got me past 75 degrees and they finally gave up. Then I met Cindy and she said she could help. I went to her 3 times a week for 2 months and she took me from 75 degrees to 95 degrees. Now I can do steps one after the other and many things are easier.

Isn’t that great?!" - Ruth H.

"Treating for left heel pain since Oct. 1997. I tried new shoes, shoe inserts, cortisone injections twice and had ESWT. They helped some, but I still had pain. Then Cindy treated me and now I no longer have pain." ̶ Sue W.

"I would wake up at night with terrible tingling and numbness in both hands. My doctor told me I needed to have carpal tunnel surgery on both hands. I went to Cindy first and she was able to get rid of all the numbness and tingling. I never had surgery and I have been symptom free for 10 years now." ̶ Robert B.
