About Us

My name is Janet Richards, ever since I was a kid I couldn't stop moving. I was a clumsy kid growing up so my mother enrolled me in ballet classes 4 days a week which eventually taught me excellent body alignment, body awareness and grace. in my late teens I had several injuries to the ankle which ended up in surgery. I learned how to rehab myself thinking back on my dance skills that included stretching and core work. The benefits of Fascial Stretch Therapy are numerous and natural. Easy to do, painless and the results are life changing. I provide services to people who want to improve the way they feel, not just physically but also mentally.

Janet is EXCELLENT. One of the best massages, pt session and full body stretches I have ever had! I have tried them all on the Seacoast too. And she really knows her stuff, the body, and athletic injuries/treatments. I went in to pre-stretch and pre-hab for a 10miler. I highly recommend Janet, if you are looking for good, skilled, hands-on sports massage, stretch & pt all in one and a great/fun person who exceeds your expectations for a treatment. Extra treats of Coco water and KT tape too! Loved it. Can't wait to go back for my next appt.

This was my first time trying the fascial massage so I'm not sure quite what to expect. I enjoyed the deep tissue massage and the stretching of the joints. I did have pain around my knee afterwards and I now have some swelling of the knee. I'm not sure if this was caused by the fascial massage. I will book another appointment to discuss and to work on feet, ankles and lower legs.

Janet is amazing! I would recommend her to anyone and everyone. She is highly skilled and puts all her energy into working on the issues you confront her with. I have had an ongoing nagging running injury and I have seen numerous medical "professionals" all of whom have come up grossly short and left me frustrated--Janet has been the only person that gives me any relief and I feel I am making progress since I have been seeking her assistance. She listens to what you have to say and what you are feeling and then works her magic:) Thank you very much Janet!! You definitely want to see her if you want to heal and feel better!!

I had a hip replacement 3 weeks ago. I had received in home Physical Therapy during that time and had been discharged being ready for outpatient PT. I was satisfied with my progress, but felt like Janet could provide me with additional exercises/movements to continue my recovery which she did. She also massaged the surrounding incision area to help relieve soreness which I did realize. Her knowledge of how this surgery can affect other muscles was so very helpful in speeding up my recovery. The morning after, I felt more flexible and much less sore prior to my visit with her. Paying special attention to my lower back and neck and shoulder area was so very welcome during my session and I still feel much relief today. I highly recommend Janet and look forward to my next visit with her. Not only do you feel in very competent hands, her personality and most sincere interest in your issues is remarkable.

Such a personalized, seasoned, experienced approach to my body and all the ways it sticks, hobbles, catches, hurts, and misaligns. The fascial stretching was new to me and seriously helped get parts of me "open and unlocked" that had long been hard to touch, even with yoga. I struggle with arthritis, a "bad" knee that had major surgery, an old ankle injury, and the hunched posture of a writer -- and Janet helped me right out of the gate the way no chiropractor, massage therapist, personal trainer, or PT has been able to. And even more hopeful to me -- she's helping me with a plan to keep getting stronger, taking into consideration my limitations, attitude, budget and schedule. I highly recommend Janet if you want to unstick your body and its habits and move forward with greater energy and less pain!
