About Us

Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. This essential “time element” has to do with the viscous flow and the piezoelectric phenomenon: a low load (gentle pressure) applied slowly will allow the fascia to release and go back to its natural state of balance. Accidents, trauma, inflammatory responses, surgical procedures and the like create myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of 2,000 pounds per square inch.

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • How I feel after:)

    The session was amazing! After the session I felt straighter. Before the session I had a slouched forward posture and was not able to correct with stretching and strengthening. Christopher explained everything as to what to expect.

  • RESULTS!!! I HAD TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENT 9 MONTHS AGO. I HAVE BEEN IN PT AND TRIED OTHER THERAPIES FOR MONTHS. I CAN ALREADY SEE IMPROVEMENT FROM YESTERDAY'S TREATMENT AND LOOK FORWARD TO MY NEXY SESSION

    Christopher is phenomenal. We worked on some very sensitive areas of my body with the utmost professionalism. I will continue my sessions with him and I am already feeling better after one session. He explained everything he was doing and why to both me and my husband. He put us both at ease with the treatments. After six years of trying everything we now have hope! Highly recommend.

  • Low back pain can be crippling. Even though I try to prevent it by keeping my core muscles strong..., it does happen once in while. Myofacial Release has helped my healing process in the past and it is helping me now, after a session with Christopher Arnold. His office is conveniently located. He was able to get me an appointment with a couple of days as he had a cancellation.

    Good session. Christopher is professional and knows his stuff.

  • Christophers skill, knowledge and professionalism were wonderful!

    Christopher is so knowledgeable and also intuitive. The way he explained what my fascia is doing and how to release it is super helpful. I continue to find improved mobility and reduced pain.

  • Christopher is not only extermely well trained and knowledgeable when it comes to Myofascial Release but it seems to me he’s tapped in intuitively which takes his talent next level.

    Christopher has a calm, informed touch and works in an unexpectedly serene treatment space????????. He understands, respects, and gracefully applies all the principles of John F Barnes myofascial release. He is truly an expert practitioner! JFB MFR marries the science of changing restricted tissue with the individual therapist's intuitive, artistic skills to create amazing healing results... my session with Christopher was everything I had hoped for and more... he held beautiful space for my mind and body to heal and offered me ideas for self treatment to keep me moving forward after my session. I'm Grateful...????????????

Myofascial release is not like massage. I have been having massage since the early '80's. "MFR" has changed my life. I now feel as though I will be able to work in comfort for many more years. Before MFR I would be in a lot of pain by mid day. If you want to heal MFR is the way. Self care and drinking lots of water make the healing last between sessions. I feel fantastic!

This practitioner is particularly effective.....I've tried many other modalities before, but nothing has compared to this.....I plan to continue with Christopher, not only for his effective treatment technique, but for the interesting learning experience also. Looking forward to the next treatment!

Christopher makes you feel at home from the start. He is very knowledgeable in his field. I find relief from symptoms whenever I go to him. He also gives “homework” to do to improve your condition if you so choose. Overall, Christopher is exceptional and I highly recommend him!
