Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Always fabulous

    I contacted Kathryn needing MFR (Myofascial Release) for sciatic issues. I had a discectomy about 7 yrs ago and my Dr. told me I should be good for years. Needless to say the problem is back. I have seen Kathryn twice now and what a relief. Kathryn has amazing knowledge about the body and how to work magic using MFR. If you are having any issues and the Dr. is telling you surgery you really need see what Kathryn can do for you first before any surgery. Healing with MFR can bring life back to your body.

  • Great job!!

    Great job!!

  • my neck feels great!

    Kathryn is really making a difference in getting at my stiffness, soreness, and mobility. I see improvement after every time I’m on her table.

  • Kathryn Barker is a top professional skilled in traditional Myofascial Release!

    Kathryn is one of only two people who have been able to reduce my TMJ pain. The only other person who has helped me is my specialized TMJ doctor who is very expensive, but I'd say Kathryn's work is actually more valuable to me, because I see immediate results. I always feel like a new person afterwards.

  • She is amazing.

    Kathryn did an amazing job! My body was out of alignment and she spent extra time on the problem area. (my hip joint) I absolutely recommend her for Myofacial Release!

My wife's office is a less than ideal location, but that's on us. Love the fact that you came to us. I think we'll try the living room next time.

Kathryn was awesome to work with. She worked with me to make my appointment fit into my schedule and be as convenient as possible. She did an excellent job in explaining to me what she was doing and what may be causing some of my underlying issues. She also let me with exercises and stretches I can do on my own, to further improve the work she was doing. I plan on getting on a routine with Kathryn so she can really help me fix the issues causing me pain.

Kathryn does very special work. For example last Sunday she released tension that I have been feeling in my neck every morning for the past 6 months. Highly recommend.

Kathryn is an amazing massage therapist! I herniated a disk in my lower back and had surgery, and whenever it rains my pain level increases to the point where I don't want to get out of bed. After one session with Kathryn, I left feeling pain free, and woke up the next morning feeling even better! I have had other massages before and have always left feeling like they hurt me, this massage experience was the complete opposite! I would highly recommend booking a session! I'll be back!
