I get a lot of questions about sleeping positions, mattresses and pillows from my myofascial clients.
I can't tell you how many times I've heard someone say, "yea I'm not sure what happened to my neck, I think I slept wrong".
One of my best friends recently was having severe back spasms during the night and when she told her doctor about it one of the recommendations was a new mattress. So she got a new one. And you know what? It helped.

“I cannot say enough good about this course! I have been a therapist for awhile and a client for much longer. And I thought I was doing okay with self care.

“I just had to tell you that I love this idea!!! Yesterday’s guided meditation was wonderful & today’s session for headaches was PERFECT. These daily emails remind me to “check in” with me. Thank you & Katie for helping to remind me to make MFR a daily experience. Looking forward to tomorrow’s session.”
