At Relief Therapy Solutions, I am dedicated at providing you the best Myofascial release, craniosacral therapy, and other helpful services to aid in pain relief, stress release, and over all to feel good.  I listen to your needs at each session, because I believe you are not the same person you were yesterday, today and going into tomorrow.  Treating and believing the pain you are in and looking else where for the cause, is what my goal for you.  Not only relaxing from stress with massage therapy, but getting deeper into what is causing what is happening and starting to correct issues with myofascial release, craniosacral therapy and kinesio taping.  


My Myofascial Release (MFR) utilizes the John F. Barnes approach to treating pain and dysfunction.   Myofascial release (MFR) is a gentle and effective hands-on therapy that applies myofascial stretching to eliminate pain, restore range of motion, and function when other treatments modalities have been temporary or ineffective.

Craniosacral therapy (CST) utilizes the Upledger approach with the combination of MFR to help facilitate underlining restrictions.  This is a gentle, hands-on approach primarily using the head (cranium/cranio) and tailbone (sacrum/sacral) as areas of focus through the spinal cord.

As you allow yourself to feel the pain and soften into it, your authentic healing happens as you unwind and release into which binds you.  Releasing that straight jacket feeling.  Myofascial Release allows authentic healing, for a lasting change, in a gentle, non-invasive manner.  

I look forward to helping and aiding in what causes lack of health.

IASTM is from the founders of rock tape. IASTM ( instrument - assisted soft tissue mobilization) focuses on mechanical model of adhesion reduction and tissue proliferation. But it's more than that also the brain and connective tissue or fascia. It's the neurosensory system which plays part in tissue integrity and movement.

James is very knowledgeable, listens to what is going on with me and addresses them well. I’ve been going over a year and feel the massages are more helpful than many other options I’ve tried!
