A Map of the Body

If there were one map of the body for all to follow, a map that showed all areas of injury, trauma, and pain, along with the necessary route to take to eliminate those issues, life would be simple.

I received a new GPS this past Christmas. My old GPS had become unreliable due to a few quirks and I did not have full trust in my iPhone’s GPS, given a few wrong turns along the way. While my new GPS offers me nearly a nearly foolproof ability to find my way around while traveling, it…

"Because It Works" is Not Enough.

“I don’t see how knowing the science behind my work will improve what I do…”

“I don’t care about the science behind it, as long as it works…”

“The evidence does not matter, it is results that matter…”

“Stop talking about things I don’t care about…”

“Shut up…”


Do any of these statements sound familiar? Have you said any of them yourself? It may be the places I frequent on the internet,…

Cross Pollination

I was recently listening to a radio show from a local NPR affiliate. The interview was with the director of a dance company that pioneer an innovative form of dance done while dangling from ropes on the sides of buildings. She described their work as a “cross pollination of various dance forms”. That term resonated with me and where I am attempting to evolve my Foundations in Myofascial Release Seminars.

These of you who have been following my posts for the past few months may see a…

Thank you for the invitation, Just to let you know, My specialty is equine massage therapy, gaining a better understanding of myofaxcial release is a major part of becoming fully educated in this particular area.

Yes, Walt.
Barnes trained, but I haven't taken his whole course - too much repetition. I incorporate some MFR into every session. Unwinding is too intriguing to not have "stuck" with me. I find it all fascinating!

Osteopathy in Australia is similar to PT here. I also checked your website and was interested in some of your links.
