I have been a physical therapist over 30 years. I have worked mostly in orthopedic outpatient clinics, but also in a hospital. My favorite way to treat has always been manual therapy: soft tissue mobilization of various types (including the "old" myofascial release), joint mobilization, trigger point treatment , etc. In early 2008 I started specializing in Women's Health and particularly pelvic physical therapy, working mostly with women. I took the APTA courses and exams , wrote the case study article and earned the CAPP (Certificate of Achievement in Pelvic Physical therapy). When I took a visceral mobilization course, my eyes were opened to the importance of fascia. I noticed there was a Barnes "Fascia Pelvis" course coming in Orlando and signed up. My life has never been the same since that course with Joan Miller, PT! I felt a deep connection to John Barnes' work. I realized my own body could be better than I thought. As I benefitted from the work myself and saw my patients get better more than any work I had done before, I became passionate about JFB MFR. I had a very successful practice dedicated to JFB MFR and pelvic PT (using JFB MFR) in Orlando Florida for 6 years. This included helping people with bladder problems such as incontinence. Then I moved to Portland, Oregon and started all over again... I love Oregon and I love this work!
