Hi! Nice to meet you. We are Nicole Russo LMT and Katie Brockway LMT, two John Barnes trained Myofascial Release therapists located outside of Boston, MA. Our own back pain and jaw pain is what brought us here. A few years back Nicole couldn't even bend over and Katie couldn't even bite into an apple (very sad for a New Englander). Then something ahhhhmazing happened. Nicole took a Myofascial Release seminar with John F. Barnes. Everything clicked. Finally, she could see the light at the end of the tunnel. She was hooked. Not only did she realize that the Myofascial Release prinicles could help her physically, but emotionally and mentally she started to change too.  Two years later she introduced Katie to Myofascial Release and a great friendship was forged! We've really learned so much along the way as we've healed our own pain with Myofascial Release. AND it has been amazing to have a friend to share it with. That's why we created these courses. To share with you what we know works and create a community of people who are supportive and can cheer each other on.

Frequently Asked Questions

These are some of the questions people most frequently ask us:

What is Myofascial Release?

Nicole and Katie are trained in the John F. Barnes approach to Myofascial Release.  This is the true and gentle form of myofascial release that is achieved by holding a steady pressure or stretch for several minutes at a time.  Other aspects of myofascial release include Rebounding (a gentle rocking motion) and Unwinding (spontaneous free movement of the body often accompanied by memories and emotions).  

What is self care?

Self care can mean many different things but here's what it means to us:  Recognizing your needs and fulfilling them to the best of your abilities with compassion.  One of our favorite ways to do this is through the art of Myofascial Release.  Myofascial Release is so much more than just stretching.  It is a practice that teaches you to honor your body.
